Ryan endured a difficult season with a series of niggling injuries restricting his opportunities at senior level. Everything started well as he played a part in the England under-19's UEFA Championship campaign in July 2005 but, after forcing his way into Nigel Worthington's reckoning and scoring an excellent goal at Luton, he was forced to sit out over three months with an ankle injury. Despite these setbacks he was offered and signed a new two-year contract with Norwich and finished the campaign back in the senior reckoning. A clever striker, in the Teddy Sheringham mould, he has great technique and the vision to create chances for others. He will be hoping for an injury free 2006-07 season.

Like Ian Henderson and Jason Shackell, Ryan Jarvis is another product of the Canaries' Academy set-up.
He made history when he became the Club's youngest-ever player after making his debut at Walsall on April 19, 2003 aged just 16 years, 282 days.
Despite bursting on to the scene over two years ago, Ryan may be a little frustrated that he has failed to make a first team place his own over the past two seasons.
An intelligent striker, Ryan has the ability to find both time and space, even in the most difficult situations.
Like a number of players at Carrow Road last season, Ryan's campaign wasn't helped by a couple of minor injury problems. He still managed four Barclays Premiership appearances and scored a wonderful long-range goal against Liverpool at Carrow Road in January.
Ryan ended the season with a loan spell at Coca-Cola League One club Colchester United and will really be looking to make a big impression at Carrow Road next season.
