Roy played full-back for City from 1949 to 1958 (winning a cup-final medal in 1956) when he was transferred to Crystal Palace (Brighton & H.A. claims "the Complete History" book [SAH]). He played for a number of other clubs before retiring from playing and returning to his original home area - South Manchester, where he now lives. Roy is very much a 'blue' still and is at most home matches. He is a leading organiser of the 'Manchester City F.C. Ex-Players Association' which, he tells me, numbers around a hundred or so members. (The Association 'lost' it's oldest member - Sir Matt Busby - who used to attend the gatherings). As I say, Roy is a fervent 'blue' who, in his spare time enjoys socialising and playing snooker.
