Jabba's Comments

A wing half with some talent who joined Leeds at 18 and played occasionally through the early 1950s. After serving his time doing National Service, he moved on to York and Bradford. On retirement from the professional game, he continued his involvement with football - managing several sides in North Yorkshire and scouting out talent for Barnsley. He died in 2001 in Leeds; his funeral was attended by John Charles and several other players from his Leeds days.

Thanks to Christie Mollatt for the photo.

Christie Mollatt says: My Great Uncle Ron........I only had the pleasure of meeting this man a few times as the family lived a distance away in Mansfield a few miles away from uncle Ron's birth place. He seemed a very proud man who loved playing and coaching football. The family were very sad to hear of uncle Ron's passing on and our greatest condolences go out to Darren, Ron's son.

Stuart Mollatt says: There are several more pictures of Ron Mollatt in his scrap book but i don't know what's happened to that, there are also pictures and articles of other :eeds players from this period in it as my uncle Ron kept a detailed and interesting log book of everything that concerned him to do with football. He was a straight forward down to earth man who didnt much care for unprofessional people. He was a very traditional man who dearly loved Leeds United. I only met him on two occasions but these things were very clear to me. Hope that's some information you didn't already know. Also if Darren does take a look at this web site could you Email me please thank you.

Karen Wright (Mollatt) says: well what can i say that hasen`t already been said, a great tribute to the family

Michael Mollatt says: Hello ! My name is Michael Mollatt and I am Norwegian,I just searched on my last name for fun.My great grand father came to Norway workin' on the very first railroad.
