Randolph began his pro career in 2004 at Charlton, but made his league debut whilst on loan at Accrington in a 2-1 defeat against Exeter in August 2005.

The following season - 2006/07 - he spent a short spell on loan at Gillingham before returning to Charlton, where he made his first team debut in a 2-2 draw at Liverpool on the final day of the season (with the Addicks having already been relegated).

Once again he found first team opportunities at The Valley limited so the second half of 2008/09 was spent on loan, this time at Bury for whom he made 14 appearances. It was a similar story the following season, when League One Hereford came calling to offer him some first team experience.

With Charlton relegated to the third tier of English football, Randolph - 22 at the time - finally got him chance to stake a place in the first team in the latter half of the 2009/10 campaign. But that summer he rejected a new contract offer from Athletic in favour of Scottish Premier side Motherwell, for whom he signed on a free transfer.

The 2010/11 season saw him play 48 times, gain his first experience of European football in the qualifying stages of the Europa League and feature in Scotland's FA Cup Final where he was on the beaten side, with Celtic running out 3-0 winners on the day.

Now firmly established as 'Well's number one goalkeeper, Randolph played a further 42 times in the following season as he helped his club to a third-place finish behind the (former) big two of Celtic and Rangers.

They went one better in 2012/13, finishing runners-up behind the Bhoys, a season in which the 6'1" stopper had his first taste of Champions League football (although Motherwell were knocked out in the qualifying round by Panathinaikos).

With his stock higher than ever, Randolph refused offers of a new contract from Motherwell in order to sign a lucrative deal with Birmingham City. Going straight into the first team, he was a virtual ever-present for the two seasons he spent at St Andrews.

Sent off only once in his career (against Bolton in October last year), Randolph has already made nearly 300 first team appearances in total for his various clubs.

Sunderland

2-2: Saturday, 15th April

Barely tested but his walkabout in the first half could have proved costly.

One shot to save all day but his failure to command at the corner at the end worried me a bit.

Arsenal

0-3: Wednesday, 5th April

Barely tested but his walkabout in the first half could have proved costly.

Hull City

1-2: Saturday, 1st April

Barely tested but his walkabout in the first half could have proved costly.

Leicester City

Thought he could have done better for their first.

AFC Bournemouth

2-3: Saturday, 11th March

Little he could do about the first but almost embarrassed by Rondon from distance after being caught off his line and then totally misread the corner from which Evans equalised.

Little he could do about the first but almost embarrassed by Rondon from distance after being caught off his line and then totally misread the corner from which Evans equalised.

Nutmegged for their first. Fouled for their second. Not much to do in between.

Southampton

3-1: Saturday, 4th February

Didn't get close to a single one of City's four strikes. Apart from picking the ball out of his net several times, he had few saves of note to make.

Didn't get close to a single one of City's four strikes. Apart from picking the ball out of his net several times, he had few saves of note to make.

3-1: Saturday, 21st January

Little of note to do bar make one excellent stop and watch Aaron Cresswell's shot crash against the crossbar.

Burnley

1-0: Wednesday, 14th December

Newcastle United

Well I’ll admit concern when Adrian’s disgraceful ban was upheld by the money grabbing charlatans at the FA (no offence Greg mate!). My worry was based on what I’d seen of Randolph in close season. However, when required he has not been found wanting and has proven a worthy replacement even if he’s not been overly taxed in his last two matches.

The locals weren’t the only ones unemployed on Merseyside.

AFC Bournemouth

3-4: Saturday, 22nd August

Like many I wasn’t over-impressed with his pre-season but he had a fine game and is probably the only player able to emerge with any credit from this match. I have no idea whether any players ever read this, but if you’re an outfield player you may wish to skip the following…..
