As I was compiling this checklist I heard the news that Billy Ronson had passed away. He played for Cardiff City in 1979-80 and 1980-81 and will be fondly remembered by Bluebirds supporters.

Billy made his debut for Blackpool in 1974-75 and while there he spent the summer of 1978 at Fort Lauderdale Strikers in the NASL. He moved to Cardiff City before the start of the 1979-80 season. He also played for Wrexham, Barnsley and Birmingham City before moving to the United States permanently where he spent six seasons at Baltimore Blast, an indoor football team. He also played for Tampa Bay Rowdies, Detroit Rockers, Baltimore Bays, Pittsburgh Stingers, Washington Warthogs and Baltimore Spirit. In 2009 he was inducted into the Baltimore Blast hall of fame. He died at his Baltimore home, aged just 58, from natural causes, on 8 April, 2015.
