From winning the Premier League and FA Cup with Manchester United to representing Northern Ireland at the European Championships, it’s fair to say that Roy Carroll achieved a lot in his extensive football career. Having spent over 25 years in the game, his career has seen him acquire a legion of fans throughout Europe. In addition to playing in England and his native Northern Ireland, Roy also spent time in Greece and Denmark giving him a fresh perspective on the footballing culture of multiple locations. One of the most recognisable football speakers around, when booked for your next event Roy can share fantastic anecdotes from his career, revealing what it’s like to spend your life playing at the top level of professional football.

Beginning his career at Hull City in 1995, he quickly made an impression and won his first international cap for Northern Ireland in 1997 when still a teenager. After a spell with Wigan Athletic where he helped the Latics win the Football League Trophy in 1999, he soon caught the eye of one of the biggest clubs on the planet – Manchester United. In 2001 he made the move to the Premier League side, initially as an understudy to World Cup winner Fabien Barthez. Despite never really establishing himself as United’s number one keeper, he spent four successful years at the club where he played a crucial role in winning the 2003 Premier League title and 2004 FA Cup. During his time at Old Trafford, Roy rubbed shoulders with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham, Wayne Rooney and was of course managed by the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson. During his speaking events, Roy can wow audiences with his dressing room stories of that time, providing a unique insight into working with some of the game’s most illustrious personalities.

After leaving Manchester United, Roy went on to represent a number of iconic clubs, including Rangers, West Ham and Derby County. Plus, he spent time abroad playing for Odense in the Danish Superliga and OFI Crete and Olympiacos in the Super League Greece.

Roy’s career continued well into his late 30s and early 40s, and he came back to the UK first with Notts County and then back to Northern Ireland with Linfield, FC Mindwell and Dungannon Swifts. But, during this time he was arguably best known for his performances for Northern Ireland. Despite sharing goalkeeping duties, Roy still played a crucial role as Northern Ireland qualified for Euro 2016 in France. This success marked the first time the nation had competed at a major tournament for 30 years, and at his speaking events, he speaks with pride at the part he played on this journey.
