The 28-year-old made his debut for the club against Yeovil Town in the Carabao Cup, but he had to wait until the end of December to score his first goal, which was a memorable last minute winner against Bristol City.
Some supporters were happy with the club’s decision to secure the services of Bennett, as they took to the confirmation on Twitter to express their delight over the signing.
Free transfer, champ experience and a position we need cover in. Worth a shot to me. Good luck Ryan! #wwfc

Ryan Bennett made a name for himself during his time at Grimsby Town, as he became the club’s youngest ever captain at 17 years of age. Indeed, he was progressing nicely and enjoying regular football but he would later go on to leave the Marines, as he signed for Peterborough United in October of 2009 on an initial three-month loan deal, with the view to a permanent move.
He later went on to sign for the Posh permanently as he continued his rise to stardom, which later secured him a move to then Premier League side Norwich City for a reported £3.2 million.
The defender enjoyed a rather successful time of things during his first couple of seasons at the club, but things turned sour towards the end of his time at Carrow Road as he was heavily criticised for his performances, which led to him being released.
On the 31st of May 2017, he signed a three-year deal with Wolverhampton Wanderers, just after the club announced that they had appointed Nuno Espirito Santo as their new manager.
The 28-year-old made his debut for the club against Yeovil Town in the Carabao Cup, but he had to wait until the end of December to score his first goal, which was a memorable last minute winner against Bristol City. He struggled to work his way into Nuno Santo’s plans towards the start of the Championship season but an injury helped him secure regular minutes, and the rest is history.
It comes as no surprise that some supporters were delighted to see him join the club as he has turned out to be a brilliant signing, having established himself as a fan favourite due to his solid performances at the back and his no-nonsense defending, which was there for all to see against Chelsea recently.Like what the TT have on offer?
