Lots of anecdotes about Roy's smoking
He used to run out of the tunnel and stamp out a ciggie. Some players joked that he smoked in the shower. it killed him in the end in his mid fifties
He was certainly my hero back then. He did have a penalty saved away at Spurs on 24 March 1962. That was the only miss in his Everton career.
I saw him have one saved by Dave Gaskell in the 63 Charity Shield but the referee ordered a retake & Roy made no mistake.
ever missed a penalty. He also used to put his ciggy out as he emerged from the tunnel for the kickoff.
