Roy came from a working class family. In Civvy Street his dad was a mechanic; in the war he was in the Royal Artillery and served most of his time in North Africa as one of the Desert Rats. At the age of just fourteen he was showing real talent as a footballer. He had dreams of turning professional but then he was stupid enough to get into trouble with the law. What he did would be considered pretty minor by today's standards, but he did have to attend court and was sentenced to three years in an approved school. His story begins with his school days, moves on to his venture into professional football, then two years of national service. Along the way, we get to know Roy, as a teenage scallywag growing up in post war London, who also has deep moral values and a strong family unit. His foray into professional football led him to play with some of the best known footballers of the fifties. He is a natural entrepreneur and his courage and optimism leads to the setting up and development of a ski business which concludes with the building of a twenty million pound indoor Snow Centre, probably the best in Europe.
