In 1937 an Under 18s team was formed known as the Richmond Recruits. The press gave them the moniker ''Kittens. In subsequent years it was an Under 19s team
There was also an Under 17s version.
The official competition was known as the 'Thirds' in 1946, and became the 'Under 19's from the 1960 season onwards.
The competition ended at the end of 1991 and replaced with the TAC Cup.
In 1950, the Richmond Junior League was disbanded due to lack of support from junior football clubs in the district.
A 4th 18 was then created under the name 'Richmond Junior F.C' and the 'managership of Stewart Hemmerde'.
This side was entered into the 3rd 18 League. As such there were 2 Richmond teams in the Thirds competition in 1950 - 'Richmond' and 'Richmond Junior'
