Ranson appeared in the opening two rounds of the 1934 VFL season before succumbing to a knee injury. He then returned to his original club, Launceston, where he participated in seven premiership teams. A NTFA representative, Ranson also represented Tasmania at the 1933 Sydney Carnival. He played as a defender and won Launceston's 'Best and Fairest' award in 1937. Ranson captain-coached them to the 1945 premiership, and later joined Scottsdale as their inaugural captain-coach in 1948.[2]
