Ronald Leslie "Ron" Baynham (born 10 June 1929 in Birmingham, England) is an English former footballer, best known as a goalkeeper for Luton Town.

Playing career

Baynham first took up goalkeeping during a spell in the army on National Service, and declined a trial with Wolverhampton Wanderers soon after, thinking himself not good enough. After starring at Worcester City he felt confident enough to accept a move to Luton Town. For four years he competed with Bernard Streten for the number one shirt, but by 1955 Baynham was Luton's regular 'keeper.[1]

Baynham played for the club until 1964, when the 35-year-old retired. He gained a total of 3 caps for England during his time at Luton.[1][2]
