RotR in the Today newspaper p.2

The Today newspaper ran from 1986 to 1995. It was proclaimed to be Britain's first colour newspaper and included Roy of the Rovers stories in early editions.

Roy advertised the Today stories in his own comic on 19th April 1986. At that time they were appearing in the Today newspaper on Wednesday's, Friday's and Sunday's.

These stories will be reproduced here, as I managed to retrieve the majority of these strips, originally published in the old site. The artist for these stories is Kim Raymond.
