Ron Fearon (born 19 November 1960 in Romford) is an English retired professional football goalkeeper.

In 1984, he trained with the San Diego Sockers of the Major Indoor Soccer League (MISL) while visiting his wife's family who lived in California. In 1989, Terry Nicholl, coach of the Wichita Wings of the MISL called Fearon and invited him to a trial. At the time, Ipswich Town was asking for a transfer fee of approximately ₤140,000. Ipswich Town waived the fee for the transfer to the Wings. He signed with the Wings on 1 October 1989. In the summer of 1990, West Bromwich Albion expressed an interest in signing Fearon, but he decided to extend his contract with the Wings after Ipswich Town reinstated the transfer fee now that Fearon was returning to England.

On 12 June 1996, Fearon signed with the Columbus Crew of Major League Soccer. He played no games and was soon back in England.

After retiring he trained to become a school teacher teaching P.E and helping Ipswich academy enter schools to train pupils.
