Ex-Arsenal, Tottenham midfielder Ricketts enjoying Thai journey

Rohan Ricketts has found himself playing professional football all around the world during his career which has spanned more than a decade.

The 31-year old London-born midfielder started his playing days with Arsenal before moving to north London rivals Tottenham in 2002.

Since then he has played with Coventry City, Wolves, QPR, Exeter City and Barnsley in England, with Toronto FC in North America, and with clubs in Hungary, Moldova, Germany, Ireland, India and Ecuador.

In February, Ricketts joined Thai Premier League outfit PTT Rayong, making his debut on March 8, and he admits that life in South East Asia is good.

Rayong take on Buriram United on Wednesday night and Ricketts posted on Twitter that he was excited about preparing for the trip east to the Thunder Castle Stadium.

PTT Rayong currently sit 10th on the Thai Premier League table with five points from their opening four matches. Ricketts has played just once, coming on as a second-half sub in the 2-2 draw with Chiangrai United two weeks ago.
