7 Ricky Modeste

Current Team
Dover Athletic

Ricky Modeste signed for Dover Athletic in May 2012 from Chelmsford City. The left winger joined Chelmsford’s youth set-up in 2007 and became the club’s Young Player of the Year in 2009. He was a regular in the first team at Melbourne Park from then on. Easily recognised by his long dreadlocks, Ricky is a skilful and pacy winger. In 2009 he was chosen to appear in Sky One’s reality TV show Football Icon, making the final six contestants. Modeste settled in well at Crabble and found his best form under Chris Kinnear. The popular winger signed a new contract in June 2013 and played a big role in the team’s play-off victory, scoring twice in the semi final and setting up the winner in the final at Ebbsfleet.
