He is also a marvellous motivator and is happy to use these talents on corporate days, and he always livens up the whole atmosphere with his guest appearances.


Born in Liverpool, England and brought up in the West Midlands, Ron enjoyed a long-playing career at Oxford United. His first of many manager’s jobs was at Kettering Town but he is best know for his successful spells at West Brom and Manchester United who won the FA Cup twice under him. Positions at Athletico Madrid, Sheffield Wednesday, Aston Villa and Coventry followed, before his last job at Nottingham Forest.

Ron has provided summaries from the commentary box at five World Cups, six European Championships and many other major matches for television including League and Cup Finals. Ron also hosted his own football show 'Extra time with Ron Atkinson' on Carlton ITV as well as appearing on ITV’s results service - The Goal Rush.
