Something of a Roy of the Rovers tale, from water bottle carrier for Ian Rowe during his time at Gornal Athletic to back-up goalkeeper and star of the future just five years on.

Only just past his 16th birthday, Ryan has already earned senior appearances between the sticks, making his debut for West Midlands Regional League outfit Dudley Sports towards the end of the 2017-18 season.

Ryan once saw WWE Superstar Randy Orton at the departure lounge of a major European airport and told his friends he was going to RKO him out of nowhere but on further reflection decided not to and just nodded at him instead.
