5 Oct 1925
Winning the FA Cup in 1955 would be the highlight of a long and successful career to Ron with Newcastle United.
Starting his career at Stanley, he signed for United in 1948 and stayed with the club for 10 full seasons. On leaving he moved to Gateshead as first player managed for a season before moving full time to the managers bench for a second term.
Playing at left-back Ron scored just the one goal, that being against Leicester in his third last game for the club.
He passed away in 1971, aged just 46.
