Maurice Lloyd Ryan (7 June 1943 – 12 August 2011) was a New Zealand cricketer who played first-class cricket for Canterbury and Central Districts from 1965 to 1979.

Maurice Ryan was a versatile cricketer: an opening or middle-order batsman and accurate off-spin bowler who later in his career became a wicketkeeper and a successful captain.[1] In January 1971, opening for Canterbury, he made two first-class centuries three days apart: 110 on the first day of the match against Northern Districts on 12 January,[2] then 129 on the first day against Auckland on 15 January.[3] In February 1967 he scored 35 and 58 against the Australian tourists, playing a major part in Canterbury's victory, the first time any team in New Zealand had defeated the Australian team in a first-class match.[4]

Ryan represented both North Island and South Island, and played for New Zealand in the Australian one-day competition in 1971-72, but never quite made the New Zealand Test team.[5] He captained Canterbury from 1976-77 to 1978-79. They won the national one-day competition in 1976-77 and 1977-78.

He was chairman of the board of Canterbury Cricket from 1998 to 2000, after which he moved to Sydney.[1]
