Career[edit]

Ronan started his career by Copperpot J.F.C.[2] and attended St Cuthbert's RC High School with whom he reached the final of the English National Schools Cup as a year 7 in 2009 with a team that also included Axel Tuanzebe, Kisimba Kisimba and Johny Diba, who all went on to become pros.[3] Then joined Rochdale, his boyhood club in which he stayed there until he joined Wolverhampton Wanderers at the age of 16.[4] Ronan made three appearances for the team's development squad in the 2016–17 EFL Trophy, scoring a goal in their 4–0 win over EFL League Two team Accrington Stanley.[5] With Paul Lambert as manager, Ronan was part of the first-team squad for the first time on 26 November 2016,[6] as an unused substitute in the 2–0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday. Ronan made his debut on 17 December 2016, replacing Hélder Costa for the final nine minutes of the team's 2–0 win over Nottingham Forest.[7][8]

On 31 August 2018, Ronan joined League One club Walsall on loan until January 2019 along with team-mate Connor Johnson.[9]
