Ryan began his football career at Vale Park, as he progressed through the youth ranks before making his senior debut for The Valiants emphatic 2 - 2 victory over Morecambe in 2011.
Ryan was fast becoming one of the Football League's most sought after midfielders at the time - so much so that Fulham were to take him on trial shortly after making his Vale debut.
Lloyd helped the Staffordshire outfit seal promotion from League Two back in 2013 and then completed loan moves to both Tamworth and Chester.
Ryan signed for Chester on a permanent basis in the summer of 2016 and began to put in more captivating performances which alerted a plethora of other clubs to compete for his signature.
John Askey brought Ryan to the Moss Rose in the summer of 2017 and he went on to play an important role in our National League title winning season.
