Real Roy of the Rovers stuff!

by Barrie Tomlinson | 03 October 2016
Category: Sports Biography
Synopsis
Forget Wayne Rooney, David Beckham, Gazza, George Best. This is the story of the biggest name in English football from the past 50 years plus! Roy Race, Melchester Rovers' super striker, player-manager and manager, is better known throughout the world as 'Roy of the Rovers' and now, with the help of cohort Barrie Tomlinson, he tells the inside story of how he became the hero of his own football comic, a publication not only read by children, but also by their dads and grandads before them - not to mention the many real-life footballers too. Barrie was sub-editor, then editor and group editor of 'Tiger' comic, which first featured Roy's adventures. He later launched 'Roy of the Rovers' as a separate comic. Packed with photos, the book tells the story of a glittering career and shows Roy with the top celebrities of the day.
