Ellam, Roy I have recently been working for Roy at the farm he lives at with his wife and daughter and her family. Roy looks after himself daily in the gym and is in very good health and is fit and active. He is a gentleman and loves to talk of his football years. It was a pleasure to meet him. He lives in the west Yorkshire area.

Ellam, Roy Roy used to take me to Huddersfield town when I used to have school holidays. I was on school boy contract forms and trained at Huddersfield during school holidays. Myself and Roy lived in South Kirkby at the time and I have very fond memories of those days. Music is a love of mine and one tune that sticks in my mind when travelling with Roy was Knock Three Times by Dawn playing on the radio. Wonderful childhood memories.....thankyou Roy Ellam.

ELLAM, Roy Big Roy was a firm favourite at Leeds Road, especially when he smacked in that winner against you know who. He was also a hospitable host at his pub, which I attended many times and became a very good friend. Thanks Roy and good health mate.
