Help Ron!

Help Ron!

Saints fans will no doubt need to come together and dig deep, this time for club legend Ron Davies.

Ron Davies played for saints 240 times and scored 130 goals.

So why does Ron need out help? He needs a hip replacement, costing thousands of pounds.

The Campaign called Give it to Ron aims to Raise £10,000 so the saints legend can avoid being in a wheelchair.

Rons 'Spring healed leap' no doubt took a toll on his hips, many of his 130 saints goals where towering headers.

Saints fans can help out the 65 year old legend by buying a Programme on sunday against Cardiff, the price has been raised to £3.50 to give the extra 50p to the funds.

Donations can also be made, Anyone who would like to post a donation please make the cheque payable to: Sarah Luker, Give it to Ron, St.Marys Stadium, Britannia Road, Southampton, Hampshire SO14 5PF. Or hand in a donation at the Clubs megastore or West Quay store.

Saints rallyed well to fund the Ted Bates Statue and should all rally again to help someone who will always have a place in the clubs heart.

All fans who make a donation will be entered into a draw to win a famous Le Tissier picture drawn by Ron Davies himself, there are 277 prints to be given away.

Big Ron also played for Pompey so it's sad to see a good footballer fall on hard times. My question is who helps the poor people with the same problem, the Government I suppose.

Mickowl and townsam are both very sad, this is about a player who needs a helping hand from the fans. The fans of clubs like Southampton would have a whip round and help out a great player for the club. The reason why he can't get a hip on the NHS is because he is retired over in America, although he often writes and draws for the local paper down here.
