Ron Davies

Ronald Tudor Davies Date of Birth: May 25, 1942

Ron joined Chester as a £3 a week groundstaff boy and reputedly trained in army boots to improve his already prodigious leaping skills. The Hatters took a £10,000 gamble on the 20 year old in October 1962 and he rewarded them with 21 goals in 29 League appearances as a poor Luton side sunk to Division Three.

In September 1963 a £35,000 bid from Norwich, against whom Ron had scored six goals the previous season, had to be accepted and his career then went from strength to strength taking in Southampton, Portsmouth and Manchester United along the way.

One of the best headers of a ball the game has ever seen, Ron moved to the USA and passed away in Albuquerque in 2013.
