great to see the photos of an old hero of mine and many valiants . to describe his fullback style i would say he was like gibbo turbocharged, hard as nails, and if the groundstaff had left the gates open, hed have carried on down the wing to boslem! great memories of tackles norman hunter woul d have been proud of. happy days.😄☺️:drink:

My memory isn't what it should be but I have warm memories of Boulton and Wilson as our full back pairing in the late sixties.

I'm sure Ron Wilson scored a goal from about 40 yards in one game but maybe my memory ia adding a few yards with every passing year!

Great times with the 69-70 Promotioon team, of which Ron was a major part, alongside Clinton, Johnny King and Roy Sproson in the back four that year that went 19 games unbeaten at the start of the season.

Nice to see Ron looking so well. 

A combative and hard working left back. Always gave us 100%. A fans' favourite.

Good summing up Sage,69-70 season is my favourite period obviously if you could watch a game from that period it would be dire compared to todays offerings but I have to say that team ran through a brick wall for the club. and it's very boisterous supporters.

My first ever Vale away game was at Oldham of this season , beat them 3-2  think it was Bobby Gough scored a screamer for the winner . Great season .
