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.

As you'll have seen, Roy has returned in a brand new comic, but the legacy of the world's greatest fictional footballer hasn't been forgotten! We've teamed up with top notch retro football shirt company COPA to bring you this: the 1980 Melchester Rovers home shirt.

Arguably the most iconic Rovers shirt ever with its yellow strip and round collar, our collaboration with COPA also features the period-correct Melchester rovers badge, and Roy's famous number 9 on the back - so you can become real life Roy of the Rovers stuff!

Manufactured in Portugal, and shipped in a beautiful presentation box, this is the first replica Melchester Rovers shirt in many years, and we're delighted to bring you a slice of glorious Rovers history. 

The Melchester Rovers retro shirt can be found at the Roy of the Rovers shop, or alternatively at COPA and via selected resellers.
