PLAYER BIO

Cultured midfielder Connolly started his career at Derby County, spending five seasons at Pride Park. A damaged cruciate ligament halted his progress however and Derby released him in January 2012.

Ryan wasn’t out of the game however, as Sligo manager Ian Baraclough signed the Mayo native in July 2012. Connolly didn’t feature often for the Bit O’ Red in his preferred position in the centre of the park and was loaned out to Longford Town in July 2013.

Connolly signed for Galway United in January 2014 and he made 34 appearances for United, scoring 4 goals and he was named Galway United Player of the Year following an excellent promotion winning campaign and he was also voted onto the PFAI First Division Team of the Year and shortlisted for Player of the Year.

Connolly made 31 appearances for Galway United in 2015, scoring 3 league goals and the Mayo native had 11 assists to his name from midfield.

Connolly was appointed club captain shortly after signing a new contract at Eamonn Deacy Park for 2016.
