Ricardo Alexandre Almeida Santos
Date of birth
Ricardo Santos arrived at The Hive mid-way through the 2016-17 season from Peterborough United and has since gone on to make over 50 league appearances for the Bees, netting five times.
Barnet’s number five started off in the Dagenham youth set-up but failed to make a senior appearance for the side. He then joined Billericay Town on loan in 2013 before a release from the Daggers saw him sign for Dover Athletic but never played for them. Thurrock claimed his signature in 2013 and after his debut season in Essex, he was snapped up by Darren Ferguson at Peterborough, signing a three-and-a-half year contract in February 2014.
Santos made 75 appearances for the League One side before dropping down to the Bees. The Portugese defender featured in the majority of Barnet’s games last season and will be hoping to do so again next campaign under John Still.
