Darragh Ryan Player Profile
Debut: No debut
Graham Westley’s first foray into the transfer market in January 2010 saw the arrival of defender Darragh Ryan from Irish club, St Patrick’s Athletic after a number of years competing in the League of Ireland.
With experience gained at Cork City and two spells at UCD also under the player’s belt, Ryan is no stranger to English football either. Before his second stint at UCD, there were stays at a number of lower league Sussex clubs.
With Mark Roberts, Michael Bostwick and Jon Ashton ahead of him in the pecking order to begin with, Ryan certainly didn’t have it easy upon his arrival at Broadhall Way.
A reserve appearance aside, Ryan’s stay at Broadhall Way wasn’t to be a long one and was unable to emulate fellow Irishman Darren Murphy in establishing himself at the club.
