Tribute: Ron Moscrop

June 24, 2021

Dorchester Town Football Club are saddened to hear of the passing of former Magpie Ron Moscrop.

Ron was a wonderful attacking player, making 65 appearances for the club, scoring 33 goals. He was part of the Western League Division One winning side in 1955, as well as a member of the squad that faced York City in the second round of the FA Cup in 1954.

He famously interrupted his wedding to his beloved wife June, taking a break between the service and the reception to help the Magpies secure the Dorset Senior Cup in March 1953.

He’d also feature for Portland United and Weymouth.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Ron’s family at this time.

Ron is pictured on the front row and furthest on the right.
