We are pleased to welcome Ryan Crouch to the club who becomes the Peacocks’ ninth new signing of the summer.

The centre half spent seven successful years at Cribbs up until the end of last season, being vice-captain of the club and an ever present during their Hellenic League title winning campaign of 2022-23. Despite several offers to join other Southern Premier sides during that time, he remained loyal to the Bristol club and to former manager Richard Luffman who commented: “I’m delighted to be working with Ryan again next season. Crouchy was a massive reason Cribbs kept an astonishing 26 clean sheets in 38 league games in the 2022/23 season. He is a true leader who will do anything to win a game of football. You wouldn’t want to be a centre forward against him, that’s for sure.”

Prior to playing for Cribbs, Ryan spent six seasons at Bristol City until the age of 16 before going on to feature for Shirehampton and then Ashton & Backwell United. He enthused: “I’m buzzing to sign for this fantastic club. From the outside looking in you can see what a huge club this is. Looking forward to meeting everyone and winning lots of games of football with you. I’ll give everything I’ve got for this football club.”
