Ronald James McGarry (born 5 December 1937 in Whitehaven) is a former professional footballer, who played centre forward for Whitehaven, Workington, Bolton Wanderers, Newcastle United, Barrow, South Coast United, Bulli, Balgownie Rangers and Gateshead.

McGarry played for Newcastle between 1963 and 1967, where he was nicknamed Cassius. He made 132 appearances and scored 46 goals.

Ron was famous for carrying printed cards with "Have goals will travel" on them, an idea he got from the 1960s TV western Have Goals Will Travel.
