On this day, 14 December 1974: Tiger and Scorcher
Roy sets one up for Jumbo Trudgeon. Jumbo was an independently-wealthy footballer in the days when most top players earned little more than the cover price of a weekly Tiger and Scorcher.
When Jumbo took a kick to his expensive head, and young sub Dave Shaw proved tobe an inadequate replacement, Roy brought Sammy Spangler, a circus juggler, into the Melchester Rovers line-up. Yvonne Huttonwas the artist.
