Attacking full-back Ryan joined Avenue in the summer of 2016, switching from neighbours Guiseley. The 31-year-old had spent the previous two seasons at Nethermoor, making 34 appearances as they gained promotion to the National League, before playing 38 times as the Lions defeated the odds to stay up last term. Prior to his second career stint at Guiseley, Toulson also helped Halifax to promotion from the then-Conference North. He in fact started his career at the Shay, before spells at Harrogate Town and Gainsborough Trinity. He joined Guiseley for the first time in 2010 before returning to Halifax after one season. Extending his stay with the club in 2017, it was announced that Toulson would take up a coaching role and figure less prominently as a player.
