Versatile utility with a precision kick and good hands.


  • Kicking
  • Disposal effeciency
  • Pace


  • Contested footy
  • Consistency


Ridley can play in several different positions, butĀ has so far played his best footy in defence, as a mobile, rebounding half-back, with the ability to also play a role as a lock down defender if needed.

He has a good set of hands and can read the play very well. But perhaps his best asset is hisĀ penetrating and accurate kick.

His size makes him very versatile and he can also push forward and kick the odd goal.

Recruiters are divided on his best position, with some seeing him as a defender, while other believe he could be better used in the forward line, or even in the midfield.
