Ronald Orr sold to Raith Rovers


Wednesday, January 17 – 1912
Ronald Orr, of Liverpool, the Scottish internationalist, has been signed by Raith Rovers, and will turn out against Hamilton Academicals at Stark’s Park this week. Orr hails from Ayrshire, claiming Kilwinning as his birthplace. His first senior team was St Mirren, and from the Paisley club he went to Newcastle United.

His best football was probably shown on Tyneside, and it was while there that he was capped against England in 1904, partnering Bobby Templeton on the left wing. The other forwards on that occasion were Niblo, Walker, and Brown.

Orr, it may be interesting to relate, has been inside partner to John MacDonald, the old Raith Rovers’ favourite, and the crack Liverpool outside left told Mr. Adamson yesterday that in Orr the Rovers were getting one of the finest footballers in England. The new forward will be included in the team on Saturday against Hamilton Academicals.
