When Richard met Eric

26 October 2015

Nottingham Forest fan Richard Pacey had the chance to present Reds defender Eric Lichaj with an award recently.

Richard made the short journey from Beeston to the Nigel Doughty Academy to hand over the Bed Chambers Player of the Month award for September to the American defender.


Following an excellent start to the season Lichaj received 41% of the supporters’ votes and Richard, who was randomly selected from those who voted for Eric, was quick to praise the full back’s commitment to the Forest cause.

He told Forest Player HD: “Eric is the heart of the defence and he’s also very influential in our attacks as well.

“His goal against Burnley and the celebration showed exactly what the club and the supporters mean to Eric.”

Watch the video to hear Eric’s recollections of his famous first goal in Forest colours and how he rates the support he has received since arriving at The City Ground two years ago.

As part of the presentation package, Richard enjoyed a tour of The City Ground and received a £100 voucher to spend at The Bed Chambers.
