Ronald Francis "Ronnie" Jepson (born 12 May 1963 in Audley, Staffordshire) is an English former footballer and manager who was assistant manager of Huddersfield Town until 4 November 2008, following Stan Ternent's dismissal.
In June 2007 he obtained the UEFA Pro Licence qualification whilst manager of Gillingham, he resigned from Gillingham in September 2007 and has not taken charge at another club since.
He is currently the development coach at Queens Park Rangers.
A relative latecomer to the professional game at 25, when he transferred from Nantwich Town, Jepson started his league career at Port Vale in March 1989. Unable to nail down a first team place he was loaned to Peterborough United in January 1990 for a three month spell. He was sold to Preston North End for £80,000 in February 1991 and then two years later moved on to Exeter City, where he established himself with 21 goals in 54 games.
In December 1993, Huddersfield Town paid Exeter £70,000 for his services, and whilst there he formed a successful strike partnership with Andy Booth, scoring 36 goals and helping the side to gain promotion in 1995. When he was at Huddersfield he earned the nickname Rocket Ronnie.
Leaving for Bury on a £40,000 transfer in August 1996, he was purchased for ten times that amount in January 1998 by Oldham Athletic. Despite this fee and his record of four goals in nine games for the Boundary Park club, he signed with Burnley at the end of the season. Making 68 appearances over all competitions for the Clarets, all but six were as a substitute. Eventually an achilles problem at the end of the 2000-01 season ended his playing days.
