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.
