Oh my heavens,that is a memory.     20 goals a season eh,mmmm.


Whenever these threads come up always the image of Ron hitting that one from the halfway line which if it hadn't gone in would have killed hundreds behind the goal springs to mind.  I cannot even remember who it was against but he then became Rocket Ron and was greeted by shouts of shoot every time he got the ball.


Far be it from me to question the memory of so distinguished a poster but are you thinking of Cannonball Cockerill, signed from Huddersfield in 1958, father of John and Glenn, by any chance?

Cannon Ball, Rocket but above all a gentle  man with a superior footie brain and yes a father of a dynasty.

He was also uncle to Clive Wigginton if my memory serves me well.

Gallimore missing a penalty for Barnsley in the last minute to win the game in front of the Town fans is another one I'll never forget.

He was indeed, he was also our "man from the Pru" for many years.

Ron was the hardest striker of a (proper) football I ever saw. The only one who came close was John Stone.

What about the when we all shouted, Boulding, Boulding, what's the score.  When we thrashed Barnsley 6-1?  He was sat on the bench as an unused sub I seem to remember.


I remember being pelted with ice by the Norwich fans during the Milk Cup match, do you?

They actually brought him on towards the end. I think it was 5-1 at the time.

Yes he could Chris. Nice bloke too. But even Lew couldn't hit one from as far out as Ron did that was still going up when it hit the net.
