Remember Ronnie,s first game as he came across the field some of the comments are unprintable I think it was shock myself included.what the hells this are we playing pensioners now. we're we wrong how can anyone forget him horizontal to the goal plucking the ball out of the air his reading of the game was fantastic many a player scratched his head with what they thought was a certain goal see this man appear at the right spot with timing supreme. He was a one off brilliant to watch.Happy birthday faither and god bless you

He looked as if he had just finished a shift at the pit .nothing got to him He just got on with it a solid keeper and who left many happy memories behind
