On September 11 1954, Roy of the Rovers made its debut appearance on the cover of Tiger, a brand new sports comic, and history was made.
65 years later, we’re still talking about Roy Race, still reliving the goals, the glory, the drama and the haircuts. It’s been a wild, unforgettable ride – and it’s far from over yet!
And as you’d expect, we’re celebrating Racey’s big day in style. First and foremost, our 65th Anniversary Special is out today – you can grab it in either magazine or super-swish hardback edition.
And finally, don’t forget that if you’re in Manchester, our Roy of the Rovers exhibition is still running at the National Football Museum!
Happy birthday Racey – here’s to 65 more glorious years!
