Ronald "Ron" Stockin (born June 27, 1931 in Birmingham ) is a former English football player . The half-forward was part of the Wolverhampton Wanderers' championship team in the 1953/54 season, but did not come there regularly to train and then moved to Cardiff City .

Athletic career

Stockin was initially active as an amateur player for West Bromwich Albion in his native Birmingham , before he moved to local rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers in the immediate region via third division club Walsall in early 1952 . On the right half-forward position he was from his debut against Sheffield Wednesday (3-1) on January 31, 1953 immediately a fixture and scored a total of seven goals in the last 15 championship games of the 1952/53 season . So he seemed to have good cards in the team's internal competition - primarily in a duel with Peter Broadbent - but after just three games at the beginning of the subsequent 1953/54 season , coach Stan Cullis replaced him with this same Broadbent. On the way to the championship win, he recorded only three more missions, the last time on November 14, 1953 against the former club West Bromwich Albion (1-0).

For a transfer fee of 12,000 pounds Stockin moved to Wales in June 1954 to Cardiff City , which was then also in the top English division. In Cardiff he completed 57 first division games in three years, which led to a sporting low point when he was relegated to the second division in 1957 . The next move followed in June 1957 to Grimsby Town - settled as it were in the Second Division. Stockin also spent three years in Grimsby, including one more relegation, now in 1959 in the third division . At the age of 29, Stockin ended his professional career and then played for a short time away from the "big stage" for Nuneaton Borough in the Southern League .
