Ron Harris

Ron Harris
Ron 'Chopper' Harris, known to his mum as Ronald Edward Harris, was one of the stalwarts of Chelsea in the Sixties and Seventies and is affectionately remembered as one of the club's favourite sons. He belonged to an era in which teams routinely had a hardman to shackle the opposition's more creative players yet none came harder than Chopper. He was a member of the Chelsea side that won the FA Youth Cup in 1961 and a year later he made his full debut against Sheffield Wednesday. He quickly established himself in the first team, holding his place for a staggering eighteen years, during which time he made 655 appearances and, perhaps surprisingly, even notching 13 goals.
