Best moment in a Selby Town shirt was the 3-2 win away at Eccleshill – “it was a really tough game and thought we all worked hard to get the win and it feels great when it’s a close hard fought game, the win Tuesday night was pretty good as well (against Tadcaster Albion in the West Riding County Cup)”.
Ryan would choose Football Manager over FIFA or PES, and as a Middlesbrough fan, he looked up to Juninho – “because he was just quality on the ball and loved watching him play”.
He usually plays right back with the number 2 shirt, but also occasionally plays right wing as a number 7.

He is 100% a FIFA player, and thinks he is the uncrowned FIFA king, something Ben Lock might dispute?
