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 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 in the Best of the 70s: The Roy of the Rovers years!
