Ryan Michael Green (born 20 October, 1980 in Cardiff, Glamorgan) is a Welsh footballer currently playing as a defender for Bristol Rovers. He has represented Wales at Youth, Under-21 and Full international level, and was formerly the youngest player ever to play for Wales.


Green began his career as a trainee with Wolverhampton Wanderers turning professional in October 1997. Before making a first team appearance for Wolves, he was picked by Bobby Gould for the full Wales international side against Malta and Tunisia, breaking Ryan Giggs' record as the youngest player ever to play for Wales. He made his Wolves first team debut on November 10 1998, in a 2–1 victory against Sheffield United at Molineux but suffered an injury which kept him out for six months. He struggled to establish himself at Wolves and joined Torquay United on loan in March 2001, playing ten times as Torquay successfully fought off relegation to the Conference. However he scored an own goal in the final game of the season, a 3–2 win away to Barnet which nonetheless resulted in Torquay surviving at Barnet's expense.

He moved to Millwall on a free transfer in October 2001, [ [http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/m/millwall/1610319.stm Green joins Millwall] ] and almost joined Bradford City in 2002, a move scuppered by the financial impact on Football League clubs of the ITV Digital collapse. Instead he joined Cardiff City on a monthly contract in November 2002, joining Sheffield Wednesday two weeks later. He was released by Wednesday at the end of the season, joining Hereford United in July 2003.

In three seasons with Hereford he made a total of 117 appearances, scoring 4 goals. His first senior goal came against Telford United when, in the third minute of injury time, he ran the length of the pitch to get into a position to score the winning goal. He scored his most notable goal in his final match for the Bulls, the 2006 Conference play-off final against Halifax Town. In the second period of extra time, he curled a shot into the top left corner of the goal, which secured Hereford's return to the Football League. However he left shortly afterwards, on the 31 May 2006, signing a two-year contract with Bristol Rovers. [ [http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/b/bristol_rovers/5034268.stm Rovers bag Bulls' defender Green] ] Unfortunately he suffered a nasty foot injury in the 4–3 defeat to Grimsby Town which sidelined him for several weeks.
