Ryan Barnett (born 23 September 1999) is an English footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for AFC Telford United, on loan from Shrewsbury Town.

Career[edit]

Barnett joined the Shrewsbury Town youth system in 2007,[2] and received his first call-up to the senior squad by manager Paul Hurst on 26 December 2016, where he was an unused substitute in an away EFL League One match at Bolton Wanderers.[3] He signed a two-and-a-half-year professional contract with the club in February 2017 - with the option of a further year - whilst still a first-year scholar.[4]

The following season, Barnett made his professional debut as a substitute in a 3−0 victory against West Bromwich Albion U21s in an EFL Trophy group-stage match, coming on in the 67th minute in place of Lenell John-Lewis.[5] He made his English Football League debut on 23 October 2018, coming on for the last two minutes in place of Greg Docherty in a 3−1 home win against Barnsley, under Hurst's replacement, John Askey.[6]

Barnett joined National League North side AFC Telford United on an initial one-month loan on 10 November 2018.[7] He scored his first career goal on 15 December to open a 4–3 win at Farsley Celtic in the first round of the FA Trophy.[8] On 10 January 2019, days after his loan expired, he came back for the rest of the season.[9]
