Born in Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire, Ripley is the son of former player Stuart Ripley.[3]

Ripley began his career with Blackburn Rovers.[3] After moving to Middlesbrough in 2009,[4] he signed a two-and-a-half-year professional contract in January 2011.[5] Ripley made his professional debut on 5 March 2011 in a 5–2 loss to Reading, conceding three goals after coming on as a substitute for Jason Steele.[6] Ripley made his full debut on 14 January 2012, in a 2–0 loss at home to Burnley.[7]

He then went out on an emergency loan to Oxford United, after both their goalkeepers had suffered injuries.[8] Ripley made his only appearance for Oxford United, in which he conceded a goal from Ryan Hall‘s free kick, in a 2–0 loss against Southend United the next day.[9] After this, manager Chris Wilder was unhappy with Ripley’s performance and decided to terminate his loan spell at the club.[10] After returning to Middlesbrough, Ripley became the third-choice goalkeeper around the 2012–13 season and in January 2013 signed a new contract with the club.[11]
