Cross, Roger I was a photographer for local papers covering Brentford and Fulham and Chelsea. Paul Prissy (goalkeeper) was a pal but I have a lovely memory of sitting on the touch line watching you play and a nice bloke as well.

Cross, Roger I was Rogers postman when he lived in great notley garden village until I had a stroke at 42 in 07. He was a friendly approachable man who would always have time for a quick chat.

Cross, Roger Hi My dad Alex McEwan used time be the Scottish scout for QPR and later Tottenham during this period he worked with Roger Cross. They developed a good friendship and kept in touch until about 5 years ago whereby my dad lost contact details. My dad is always asking me thru my old football contacts (as I was an average pro between 1986-1996) to get in touch with Roger. My dad will be 83 this year and only last week he asked me again. If someone could let Roger know I will pass on my dads mobile number as he rates Roger really highly? Thanks in advance Alex please see attached email address

Cross, Roger Roger Cross, for the five years (1968-72) that I attended Faraday Secondary School, used to train our school football squad. I have very fond memories of those days and would dearly like to contact him.
