Ryan ’s Biography

Ryan played all the way up through the underage system at Drogheda Boys and joined the Drogheda United Youth side in 2007.

In 2010 Ryan made his league debut for Drogheda, coming on as a substitute against Dundalk on 14th March. He made his first full start two weeks later in a 2-2 draw with Sligo Rovers at Hunky Dorys Park. He made a total of 29 Premier Division appearances over the season but Drogheda finished bottom of the league and were relegated. The subsequent demise of Sporting Fingal spared Drogheda the drop but by then Ryan had gone, signing for Mick Cooke at Monaghan United for 2011. Cooke left Monaghan shortly before the season started, moving to Drogheda, but Ryan scored six times in 23 league appearances under Roddy Collins who led the club to promotion via the play-offs.

In 2012 Ryan was back at Drogheda United, again signing for Mick Cooke. He went on to play 24 league games, scoring three goals, as Drogheda finished second in the league. The following year he played another 29 games for the club and scored another six goals. This time, though, Drogheda finished a disappointing seventh and in December 2013 Ryan moved to Shamrock Rovers.

Ryan made 24 league appearances for Shamrock Rovers in the 2014 Premier Division, scoring three goals in the process, as Rovers secured European football with a fourth place finish. Ryan continued to play for the Hoops in 2015 making 25 league appearances and scoring once, in a 3-0 win over Bray Wanderers, as The Hoops finished third in the Premier Division. He also played in three of the club's Europa League matches as Rovers went out to Norwegian side Odds.

In December 2015, Ryan moved to Bray Wanderers signing a two-year deal. He made 22 league appearances during the 2016 season and, despite scoring only once in the league, was the clubs second highest scorer finishing with 7 goals, adding six to his total in cup competitions.

Ryan signed for St Pats before the start of the 2018 season.

In December 2018, Shelbourne announced the signing of Ryan.
