{{Infobox football biography using [[Project:AWB(age 2016)(age 2016)

Ryan Townsend (born 2 September 1985, Manchester , England) is an Australian Association football player. He is currently playing for Western Australia State League club Mandurah City.

Ryan was born in Manchester, in the United Kingdom, but was raised in Perth, Australia. After growing up in Australia he returned to the UK having earned a place in Burnley FC's youth development set-up. Ryan could have stayed at Burnley but they could not extend his contract due to ECU Joondalup (his club in Perth) demanding a large development fee. Ryan instead returned to Perth where he started to train with Perth Glory before playing two games in 2005 on a short term contract. Ryan then joined Wanneroo City in the Football West State League, before he was offered a full time contract with Perth Glory in place of Daniel Vasilevski for the A-League 2006-07 season. He was released four games before the end of the A-League season after a single appearance and then decided to play in Indonesia with Persiba Balikpapan until 2008.
