Ryan George Blake (born 8 December 1991) is a football left-back currently playing for Chertsey Town in the Southern League Division One Central. He was capped for Northern Ireland at age-group level.
Blake began his career with League One side Brentford and was allocated a first-team squad number for the 2009/10 season, despite being just 17 years old. He regularly featured as an unused substitute throughout the season and made his debut in a 1-1 draw with Yeovil Town on 24 April 2010, when he replaced Lionel Ainsworth after an hour. Blake found his first team chances limited during the 2010/11 season and featured as an unused substitute just four times. Blake signed a one year deal to be part of the Development Squad for the 2011/12 season and made 9 appearances, scoring one goal. Blake failed to feature at all for the first team during the 2011/12 season and was released by Brentford when his contract expired at the end of the season.
Ebbsfleet United (loan)
Following recovery from an injury, Blake signed for Conference South side Ebbsfleet United on loan on 11 January 2011. He made eleven appearances during his loan and returned to Brentford on 20 April.
Blake signed for Conference South side Farnborough on a month's loan on 28 October 2011. He made five appearances during his spell and scored the equaliser in a 3-1 away league victory over Salisbury City on 19 November. He returned to Brentford on 29 October after his loan expired.
Hampton & Richmond Borough (loan)
Blake signed for Conference South side Hampton & Richmond Borough on a month's loan on 18 January 2012, linking up with former Brentford youth teammate Lewis Ferrell. He made only two appearances and returned to Brentford on 17 February after his loan expired.
Permanent signing for Ebbsfleet United
After an unsuccessful trial for Lincoln City, Blake signed for Conference side Ebbsfleet United in the summer of 2012, linking up with former Brentford Development Squad teammate Liam Bellamy. He made only eight appearances during his only season with the club, as Ebbsfleet suffered relegation to the Conference South.
Blake was called up for Northern Ireland at U19 and U21 level. He made his U19 debut in a 3-2 friendly defeat against Italy on 25 May 2010 and played the full 90 minutes. Blake made his U21 debut on 3 September 2010, coming on as an 86th minute substitute for Patrick McLaughlin in a 4-0 2011 European U21 Championship qualifying victory over San Marino. He made his second appearance for the U21s in a friendly against Wales on 9 February 2011, starting the match and playing an hour before being substituted.
