On this day, 17 August 1974: Tiger and Jag
Melchester’s keeper Charlie ‘The Cat’ Carter was put through his paces ahead of the first match of a new season. But Charlie had his mind on other pursuits ... Tom Tully was Roy of the Rovers’ writer and Yvonne Hutton the artist.
Charlie had half a mind to give up the game and become a pop star. A spivvy agent was plotting behind the scenes to tempt him away from the Rovers.
Elsewhere in this issue was the traditional ‘My Team’ performance chart, and a pin-up of post-TheDamned United league champions Leeds.
