Ryan Lloyd is a left sided midfield player who rose through the Port Vale youth set-up. He featured regularly for the reserve side during the 2010-11 season, and was called up to the first team for the last home game of the season against Morecambe when he came on as a substitute for the closing 20 minutes of the 7-2 victory. He has another year to go in the youth team, but his promising potential was highlighted as he was invited to train for a week with Fulham in May 2011.
