Graham Roope


Recommended Posts

Sad to read on Confguide forum that Graham Roope, the former Surrey and England cricketer,has died. He was known for his exceptional fielding and also played as a goalkeeper in senior non-league football. Some on this board will remember how his immaculate handling as an emergency replacement for Trevor Porter,together with what was probably Dave Russell's greatest goal for the Rebels, saw off a very strong Minehead side in an FA Trophy second replay at Twerton Park in season 1976/77. Supporters of both clubs would, I feel sure, willingly swap their positions today for those then.


Best wishes to you all in these difficult times and looking forward to welcoming everyone to Queen Street next month.
