Cleared to Melbourne in April 1932 defender "Ginger" Ryan was one of the rare Melbourne recruits from the northern VFA clubs, but never managed to fully lodge himself in the senior side before leaving for Collingwood. A rare backman of his era who could kick with both feet, he spent five years at Victoria Park but never managed more than nine games in a year.
Date of death not in official AFL records.
Probably the "Allan" Ryan from the seconds shown as being injured in a game in September 1933, but he is described as '21' when the senior Ryan would have been nearly 24. A Ryan is shown as being recruited from Sale in 1932.
