Ryan played with Sydney FC in the Pan Pacific Challenge in Hawaii earlier this year and is currently playing with Blacktown City Demons in the TeleChoice Premier League.
Ryan will provide additional support for Community Football Coordinator, Brendan Renaud, as the club continues to expand its links with grass roots football.
?During the past month the players have been visiting clubs throughout the Sydney area as part of a new campaign to reach as many youngsters as possible,? said Brendan Renaud.
?During the last season contact was made with over 10,000 young players, so Ryan?s appointment will enhance our targeted approach and ensure that during the coming year we easily exceed that figure.?
CEO, Stefan Kamasz added, ?It?s important that Sydney FC players spend as much time as possible with the football community.
“We are a team for the people of Sydney and must ensure that every effort is made to embrace as many youngsters as possible.?
?We recently promised the member associations of Football NSW that we would be making this appointment and are pleased to have delivered on that commitment so quickly.?
