Colin Roberts

Colin Roberts has been a journalist for more than 50 years. “I wasn’t good enough to earn money playing football, so I thought I could earn money writing about it,” he says. His introduction to the fourth estate was with the twice-weekly Birkenhead News followed by a spell as a crime reporter on the Liverpool Echo. In 1970 he moved to London where, apart from six years as sports editor on Bermuda’s daily newspaper, he remained gainfully employed with a very large bank until he retired in 2007.
