Ron Corry was a high-class keeper who progressed from Canterbury juniors into senior ranks.
A series of capable displays between the posts forced his way into the NSW team and this was followed by selection for Australia for the first time, against Singapore in 1967.
Corry shared the keeping duties with Roger Romanowicz on the Asian tour in 1969 and his remarkable skills won him selection in every match in the 1969 World Cup qualifying series and in four matches in the 1973 campaign.
A keen eye, alert brain, coolness under pressure and a great handler of high balls, he was very efficient in goal-mouth tussles, especially corners and had an uncanny catlike ability to pick the right way in stopping penalties.
He made 33 appearances for Australia, with 27 of those 'A' internationals.
After retiring from playing, he became the Socceroos goalkeeper coach and then the position of goalkeeping Coach of Western Sydney Wanderers in the A-League.
