Roy Race, the teenage goal-scoring sensation at Melchester Rovers, and the star of iconic football series Roy of the Rovers, has signed an exclusive boot deal with British sportswear brand Gola.
It’s not the first time Gola has been seen in the pages of Roy of the Rovers - back in 1981, Gola sponsored the iconic footballing superstar Roy Race, and his team Melchester Rovers. The partnership made the cover of the July 4th 1981 issue of Roy of the Rovers, with Roy first showing off his brand new red and yellow Gola sponsored kit to his team mates. “What do you think of our new playing strip?” he asked. “Terrific, isn’t it?”
