Ron was famous for carrying printed cards with "Have goals will travel" on them, an idea he got from the 1960s TV western Have Gun Will Travel.

In 2009 The Fairs Club, a group of Newcastle United supporters, presented Ron with a football statuette with "Have Goals Will Travel" inscribed on it as thanks for his dedication to Newcastle United.
