Born in Wrexham, Ward started his career at his local club, Wrexham A.F.C., but made his senior debut in a man-of-the-match performance on loan at Tamworth.
Liverpool moved for the goalkeeper in January 2012, where he developed in their Under-18s and Under-23s sides before being promoted to the Reds’ first team and gaining valuable senior experience on loan at Morecambe and Aberdeen.
He was recalled to Liverpool in 2016 and soon underlined his potential with an impressive debut display in a 2-1 Premier League victory at Bournemouth in April of that year, followed by a further run out in a 3-1 win over Swansea City.
Ward would then join Huddersfield Town on a season-long loan in 2016/17, where he proved to be a key figure - playing 46 times as the Terriers were promoted to the Premier League.
The goalkeeper made crucial saves during Huddersfield’s penalty shootout victory over Sheffield Wednesday in the play-off semi-final and repeated his heroics in the spot-kick win over Reading in the final at Wembley.
Ward has represented Wales at schoolboy, Under-17s, Under-19s, Under-21s and senior international level.
The talented stopper immediately shone at Leicester, saving three penalties in a Carabao Cup Third Round success at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
