A commanding centre half, Ryan is still only 28 but has vast experience upon joining Hinckley AFC from Cinderford Town.
Described by Carl Abbott as a ‘leader and man mountain’, he had been a target for Hinckley weeks before he linked up with the side towards the end of 2015-16.
So solid were his performances at the heart of the defence that we was named vice-captain for 2016-17, and Carl Abbott believes he will have a great influence on the side this season.
