Roy skated with the North London club and was the 10000 metres British Champion in the late 1970's.  He was a reserve for the European Championships in Finale Emilia in 1977. Latterly he joined the Mercia club in the early 1980's before retiring.  His wife was Joanne Lawrence, secretary of the Roller Speed Committee.

Found him!! He's alive and well and living in West Sussex!!  Spoke to him yesterday for the first time in 30 years.  As a 16 year old I did a 2 man relay with Roy at the Zandvoorde international.  We were lapped off before the finish but posed on the podium whilst the race was still running!!  The photo is on here somewhere in the 1980-89 section...
