Authentic Signed Ron Harris Photos, Frames, Mounts and DisplaysRon Harris, known by the nickname "Chopper", is a former English footballer who played for Chelsea in the 1960s and 1970s. Harris made his senior club debut in February 1962 in a 1-0 win against Sheffield Wednesday. His first honours with Chelsea came with a League Cup win over Leicester City in 1965. He became club captain the following year when Terry Venables left for Tottenham Hotspur. The 1970 FA Cup Final is notorious for being one of the most physical of all time, with Leeds having taken a 2-1 lead at Wembley with just six minutes remaining, it was his quick free kick which led to Ian Hutchinson's headed equaliser to take the game to a replay. During the replay at Old Trafford his late tackle on Leeds' playmaker Eddie Gray after just eight minutes (just one of many late tackles committed by both sides), left the latter a virtual passenger for the rest of the match: Chelsea eventually won 2-1 after extra-time. The following season saw Harris lift Chelsea's first major European honour - the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup - in another replayed final against Real Madrid in Athens.
