IN A LEAGUE OF HIS OWN! Relive the best Roy of the Rovers stories from the 1970s in this exciting anthology of reprinted classic strips, celebrating over 65 years of the iconic football comic.

Such was the popularity of Roy Race and the mighty Melchester Rovers in Tiger, that on 25th September 1976, a brand new comic titled Roy of the Rovers launched! It was a golden era for football and the strip. Melchester Rovers had a strong team during the latter half of the 70s, reaching a European Cup Final in ’78 and the UEFA Cup in ‘79. It was a time in which the team looked for new talent from overseas and managed to land Varagosa’s greatest player, Paco Diaz. For Roy Race there were several professional and personal triumphs, including a brief stint at managing the England team and the birth of his twins. From becoming a parent to playing alongside Trevor Francis and Malcolm MacDonald, Roy Race and the Rovers continue to strike gold!
