East Kent Jag II

Maurice Roeves

Recommended Posts

According to an obituary I've just been reading in "The Telegraph" Maurice Roeves, the "hard man" actor who died last week aged 83, was a lifelong Jags fan.

Although born in Sunderland, he was brought up in Partick, and went to Church St Primary School.  The article went on to say that he was a lifelong Jags fan.

Rest in peace, Maurice.

There was an obituary on BBC but they never mentioned the Jags fan part. He played some good parts, especially Vincent in Tutti Frutti and God in The Acid House Granton Star Cause story. RIP

Many years ago I was in a wee bookshop  in Byres Road and he was in front of me in the queue to get Xmas Calendars

He had a right go at them for having piles of Old Firm calendars and no Partick Thistle ones

We then had a long chat about Thistle out on the pavement.  He didn't get to many games  but he knew plenty about our results

Always sad to lose one of the Jaggy family.  Familiar with a lot of his work but amazed to see just how prolific he was on stage and screen.

Him, Peter Mullen and Gerry Kelly.  Could play genuinely realistic hardmen that made you sh*t it just watching.  

Frankie Miller was the dog’s  doodaas in Just a  Boys Game...and not forgetting Hector Nicol as his Grandpa .
