Roy Race A Brief History by Mark Towers

Roy Race soccer star first appeared in Amalgamated Press' new sports and adventure comic, Tiger in September 1954. The first issue showed Roy playing for Milton Youth club in a cup tie. In true storybook fashion the score was 0-0 with only minutes to go, but Roy tireless and still on his toes, pounced on a loose ball and pushed it past a lunging defender and ripped a shot towards goal from the edge of the six yard box, which flew past the visitors' goalkeeper.
