About this product
- DescriptionThis is the greatest story ever told by the world's most beloved sportsman, Roy of the Rovers, in his own words for the first time. It is about the shocking details of the five terrifying kidnappings that threatened to blight his playing career; the stomach-churning murder attempt in 1980, which left Roy in a life-threatening coma; the sickening car bomb attack that tragically killed eight of Roy's team-mates while on a pre-season tour of Basran; the devastation of losing his wife, former Melchester club secretary Penny Laine, who died in a car accident that brought Roy closer than ever to quitting the game he loved. And finally the horrific helicopter crash in 1993 that resulted in the amputation of Roy's legendary left foot, bringing the curtain down on his sensational, game-clinching, goal scoring exploits. Candid, emotional, optimistic, and never thing less than inspiring, the autobiography of the man all fans of the game kw simply as Roy Race aka 'Roy of the Rovers' lays bare for the first time the truth behind soccer's ultimate fairy-tale story. It's all Rover, and it is here for the first time for his fans to enjoy all in one victorious book.
