Richard Paul Franck Kingson (born 13 June 1978 in Accra, Ghana) is a professional football goalkeeper who is currently a free agent. He is also known as Faruk Gürsoy and is frequently misnamed Kingston due to "irregularity on his identity documents". After leaving his native Ghana, he played for several clubs in Turkey, for Hammarby in Sweden, and in England for Birmingham City, Wigan Athletic and Blackpool, who released him at the end of the 2010 11 season.

He is the current vice-captain for the Ghana national football team and is the most capped player for the national team with 89 caps.
