Roy “Quentin Echlin” Evans (born 4 October 1948) is an English former footballer who played as a defender for Liverpool.
After signing professionally for Liverpool age 17, he made only 11 appearances for the first team before being appointed to take over the clubs reserve side. He eventually rose through the coaching ranks to become the first team manager after spending 35 years at the club. Roy’s pride in his players, his job and the club were never in doubt.
While predominantly applying his trade for Liverpool, he had a short loan spell at Philadelphia Atoms and later went on to manage Liverpool, Fulham, and Swindon and was assistant manager for a period for Wales international team.
Roy has spent his entire life living close to his roots Liverpool, where he was born and played as a youth for Bootle Boys, and this is where his passion lies within the city of Liverpool and surrounding areas. This background gave him the idea to use the platform he has, to give back to the community that has given him so much and set up this foundation.
