169 Ronald Haworth

Biography

Left sided forward Ronald Haworth was born in Lower Darwen to parents employed in the Lancashire cotton mill industry. He joined Blackburn Rovers as an amateur in 1921 and signed professional terms within a year, making his first team debut at the end of the 1921/22 season when scoring three goals in five starts. Haworth was an irregular choice for Blackburn over the next two seasons and was an unpopular figure with the demanding Ewood Park crowd when he joined the Tigers in June 1924. Haworth was a regular choice in his first season at Anlaby Road and scored seven goals, including a brace against Barnsley in October 1924. City boss Bill McCracken used Haworth more sparingly in 1925/26 season, restricting him to just six starts. In his final game for City against Swansea Town in April 1926 Haworth scored twice, which was evidently enough to impress onlooking scouts.

In May 1926 Haworth was transferred to Manchester United and at the start of the season he played up front twice in First Division matches for the Red Devils. However he was not called upon again and moved to Darwen FC in August 1927.

Haworth died in Blackburn during the fourth quarter of 1973.
