Going to matches as a kid in the early 60's when there was no sky sports and mobile phone apps, you never knew the team till they were running out - no pre kick off routines then. My heart used to drop a beat if Ron wasn't leading us out as it seemed we would be playing the match with a man short. Great days and fantastic memories !!
I dealt with Ron when he ran his sports shop in Queen Street, nothing was too much trouble for him. A really nice gentleman, he will be sadly missed. I never got to see him play but my Dad told me how great he was, and Mom always said how handsome he looked.
