- Horace Yates wrote in the Liverpool Football Echo on Ron's debut:
"There was much about Yeats that I liked. The advantage which his height gives him made him a great asset in the air, for even if he did not always direct his headers to advantage at least he served to break up aggressive Bristol intentions. He is still settling in and if he can satisfy in his first game the odds that are that he will be very much more impressive as time goes on. He does not move with quite the agility we have grown accustomed to seeing from White, but he has a sound sense of positional play."
