The 24 year old fly half joins us from Hartlepool Rovers and linked up with his new team mates for the first time at training on Wednesday evening.
He brings a wealth of experience to the squad having also enjoyed two spells at National League outfit Blaydon.
Hartlepool coach, Andy Wray, gave his reaction: "This is great news for the club and a really exciting signing. We're delighted that Ryan has joined us and look forward to seeing him in an Old Boys shirt.
"He's a quality player who brings experience from playing at a higher level. He's a threat with the ball in hand, as well as with the boot, and will set the tempo for the game we want to play.
"I have no doubt that Ryan will have a positive influence on the young players in the squad also and support their development."
