He was the original Guv'nor, and the great rival of Lenny McLean. Roy's words speak for themselves: I'm Roy Shaw. Maybe my name means nothing to you. Why should it? I'm no actor, no showman, no wannabe celebrity. I'm not loud or brash and I don't huff or puff or growl at anyone, but I live by a merciless code.
