Ron Auchettl (pronounced 'Ocker-tell') was a journeyman flanker who filled various roles at Carlton from 1966 to ’69 after being recruited from Merlynston in Melbourne’s north.

Ron’s time at Princes Park coincided with the legendary recruiting spree of the Barassi era, so he found himself part of one of the most talented player groups ever assembled by the Blues. This limited his opportunities, but his persistence still brought him 17 senior appearances and 8 goals in four seasons, including Carlton's 29 point loss to Geelong in the 1967 Preliminary Final.

Ron captained the Blues’ Reserves team in his final season, then was cleared to Bendigo League heavyweights Castlemaine as captain-coach in 1970.
