Ryan Lloyd (born 1 February 1994) is an English football midfielder who plays for League One side Port Vale. He helped Port Vale to secure promotion out of League Two in 2012–13. He played on loan at Tamworth in September 2013.

Playing career[edit]

Born in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Lloyd started his career in the youth ranks at Port Vale, starting in the club's under-nine side.[3] His debut came on 30 April 2011, as he came off the bench at Vale Park to replace Rob Taylor seventy minutes into a 7–2 win over Morecambe; Joe Davis also made his debut at the same time.[4] This came days before a week-long trial at Premier League side Fulham.[3] He was identified as a technically gifted player.[5]

Still a youth team player in 2011–12, he made his second senior appearance in a 2–0 defeat at Whaddon Road on 19 November, replacing Doug Loft after Cheltenham Town had already made the game safe.[6] He agreed a new two-year deal with the club in June 2012.[7]

He started the 2012–13 season on the bench, and assistant manager Mark Grew said his performances as a substitute "proved he's good enough" for a first team place, though he would only start a game due to suspensions or injuries to the highly impressive wing duo Ashley Vincent and Jennison Myrie-Williams.[8] Vale were promoted at the end of the season, with Lloyd largely restricted to reserve team football.

He joined Conference Premier club Tamworth on a one-month loan on 31 August 2013,[9] and made his "Lambs" debut later that day in a 3–0 defeat to Cambridge United at Abbey Stadium.[10] In total he made five starts and one substitute appearance during his spell at The Lamb Ground. At the end of the 2013–14 season he featured in Vale's Staffordshire Senior Cup final defeat to Rushall Olympic.[11] He signed a new one-year contract in June 2014.[12]
