A goalscorer whose performances over the years put him in a category of his own, widely considered as one of the best to ever play shinty.

Ronald is the only man to have ever scored more than 1000 goals in the sport. Dubbed the ‘Ronaldo of the Glens’ after the Brazilian footballer, his goalscoring exploits often saw him better the total season tallies for opposition teams. In 2002/03 his total of 94 goals in all competition exceeded the combined tally of Newtonmore and Fort William.

He made his first Camanachd Cup appearance in 1992 against Fort William as a substitute. His father, Ian Ross, was manager that day and any thoughts that he was included due to nepotism were quickly banished.

He would go on to prove his worth time and again as Kingussie swept all before them, with Ronald breaking several records aplenty along the way. Kingussie were billed as the world’s most successful team in 2003, having claimed their 18th consecutive title.

Ronald captained Scotland and left a lasting legacy in the sport beyond all the trophies and records and popularising the wearing of safety helmets amongst young players.
