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
