Ridley was a rover who was handy around goals and a 5 time premiership player with Melbourne. He topped Melbourne's goalkicking in 1960 with 38 goals and went on to coach the club during the 1970s. From 1991 until 1996 he served as the President of Melbourne Football Club. Although a well loved player, he lost his popularity with his huge push for the Demons to merge with Hawthorn. After the merger was defeated, he was replaced with Joseph Gutnick. He was named as an emergency in their official 'Team of the Century'.
