Richard "Ritchie" Appleby (born 18 September 1975 in Middlesbrough) is an English former professional footballer who played in either midfield or as a forward.

His career started in August 1994 with Newcastle United in their youth team, whence he signed on loan to Darlington for a year. He signed for Ipswich Town in December 1995, then nine months later in August 1996 he signed for Swansea City. He spent five years at Swansea, making a total of 139 appearances and scoring 14 goals. From November 2001 until June 2002 he played for Kidderminster Harriers, then joined Hull City for two years, where he fell out of favour with supporters due to his constant claims of being injured, contradicting the opinions of both club medical staff, and manager Peter Taylor. He then left to rejoin Kidderminster. He only spent two months there before joining Forest Green Rovers in October 2004. He left Forest Green in May 2005. He then signed for Welsh Premier League full timers Llanelli in March 2006. He has now signed for Waunarlwydd Football Club, as a second striker.
