A tricky winger, who had pace and the ability to beat a man with guile, Roger Morgan was a big money signing in 1969, but injury blighted his time at Tottenham and caused him to retire early from the game.
Roger as prominent in the Rangers' side that had a great League Cup campaign in 1967 and he scored the first goal for QPR in their 3-2 win over West Bromwich Albion in the final at Wembley. Tempted Spurs to spend over £100,000 on him in February 1969 and he slotted straight into the first team, playing well and creating chances. When he joined Spurs, he was the first player in the squad to wear a kipper tie !!
Career ended by a bad ankle injury at the young age of 25 in April 1973, playing his last game in 1971 and Spurs fans never really saw the best of Roger Morgan, who described his time at White Hart Lane as "the worst four years in football". Brother Ian also retired with injury at the age of 28 after moving to Watford and playing only 16 matches for the Hornets.
Twin brother Ian played inside forward in the same QPR team as Roger and was offered a trial when he played for Walthamstow Schools as a youngster.
Was a milkman in Waltham Abbey in 1974 and then went on to coach at Holloway School and be in charge of West Ham United's Community football scheme.
