Biography:
A skilful striker Ritchie Johnstone won Youth caps and spent three years with Tottenham Hotspur. He also claimed an Under-23 cap before joining Linfield after a brief spell at Dunfermline. His career at Linfield was marked by a lengthy knee injury which at one time ruled him out for two years. When fit he was noted as "a clever holder of the ball" who's "first touch sets him out" and as "one of the most naturally gifted players in the Irish League".
