Never has it been easy to cross the North London divide, but Ricketts has made the transition fairly painlessly. Perhaps in the shadow of S. Cumball's move, it paled into insignificance.
The move in summer 2002, when he was released by Arsenal, hasn't been without incident, as Ricketts wants to reach where he wants to quickly and he thought he should have made it before he did. His performances in the Reserve side showed lots of potential and effort, as well as his dedication in training. Rohan thought he might have got a look in at the end of the 2002-03 season, as many fans thought younger players might have been given some experience, but he had to wait until the start of 2003-04 before he made his bow.
Starting in the first team for the opening day fixture at St. Andrews, Rohan played very well and impressed both manager and fans alike. The fact that he has stayed in the side following Glenn Hoddle's departure shows how well he has done and his goal against Coventry City in the Carling Cup exemplified his all-action style, which displays a desire to get in and around the box.
A willing worker in midfield, Ricketts also looks smooth when running with the ball and he picks out a pass well. Perhaps he tries to over-embellish things with a trick or two, but that shows his confidence and it has won over the supposedly fickle Spurs crowd.
Didn't get much of a chance under Santini, but Martin Jol gave him a game or two, but Rohan failed to sparkle, so went on loan to Wolverhampton Wanderers under Glenn Hoddle, who brought him to Spurs. Did well enough to persuade the club to sign him when Tottenham released him at the end of the 2004-05 season.
Failing to make a regular starting place under Hoddle's replacement Mick McCarthy, Rohan went on loan to QPR in March 2007 and then was released by the Midlands side at the end of the 2006-07 season. Was given a trial by Championship side Barnsley and earned a two-year deal with the Tykes.
Left as a free agent just before the end of that deal to try his luck in Canada with Toronto FC, under the management of former Newcastle United assistant manager John Carver and was a regular, until Carver decided to move on and Rohan returned to England to seek a deal. Was turned down for a trial by Peterborough United, failed to get a deal at Aberdeen because of financial constraints and ended up playing in Hungary for Diosgyori HTK, but without pay for three months and four managers in three months, Rohan ditched that deal and moved to Moldova to play for FC Dacia Chisinau. Went on to play for Shamrock Rovers in the Republic of Ireland (ironically turning out against Spurs in the Europa League) and for Dempo in the Indian I-League.
His love of the social media available caused him grief as he retired after Dempo suspended him for complaining about them on Twitter, so he was packing his suitcases again and in January 2013 signed for Ecuadorian side Deportivo Quevedo.
