Roy of the Rovers

Roy of the Rovers – Melchester Rovers

539 career goals. 10 league titles. 10 FA Cups. 4 European Cups.

There’s no doubt about it: Roy of the Rovers is the stuff of legend. To the generations of readers who followed Roy Race’s exploits in his comic every week, the Melchester Rovers number 9 remains the definitive football superstar – a hometown hero with the lethal left foot, who never played dirty and always pulled it out of the bag at the last minute.

Roy is returning with a brand new comic soon, but the legacy of the world’s greatest fictional footballer hasn’t been forgotten. For the first time in decades, the 1980 Melchester Rovers shirt – arguably the greatest Rovers shirt of all time, with that striking yellow stripe – is back.

The Melchester Rovers retro shirt can be found online through, at and via selected resellers.
