Speaking of the signing to Barry Town United’s website, manager Gavin Chesterfield spoke of his delight in capturing the 23 year-old midfielder and commented on how he will add a different dimension to the Vale of Glamorgan outfit.
Chesterfield said: “I’m excited to be working with Ryan – he’s a player that I’ve admired from his time with Newport and Merthyr and once I heard he was returning home from London, I was naturally keen to work with him.
“Being a local lad, he’s already close friends with many of our players and as such he’s fitted into the changing room very well. I believe he’ll add a different dimension to parts of our play and his signing further strengthens our squad.”
