We were sorry to hear of the recent passing of our former defender Roger Hoy following a long battle with illness. He was 72.
A Londoner, Roger was born in Poplar and was spotted playing in local schools football. He joined our amateur ranks in 1964 and switched from full-back to centre-half when he signed as a professional in May that year.
He made his league debut at Sunderland in March, 1966, and went on to play in 15 senior games for us as a reliable and solid understudy to Wales international Mike England.
Roger left us for Crystal Palace in in September, 1968, and later played for Luton Town and Cardiff City. He finished his career in this country with Bath City and Dagenham before emigrating to Australia and playing for Palm Beach.
We extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends at this sad time.
