Roger Ernest Morgan (born 14 November 1946) is an English former footballer, born in Walthamstow, London,[1] who played as a winger in the Football League for Queens Park Rangers[2] and Tottenham Hotspur.[3]

Morgan came through the ranks at Queens Park Rangers to make his debut in a 2-2 draw against Gillingham on 3 October 1964.[4] He scored QPR's first ever goal at Wembley, their first goal in the 1967 Football League Cup Final against West Bromwich Albion, which QPR won 3-2 with further goals from Rodney Marsh and Mark Lazarus to overturn a two-goal deficit.[5]

In total, Roger played 180 league games for QPR scoring 39 goals[2] before joining Tottenham Hotspur in 1969.[1] Injury forced his early retirement in 1973.

He spent 18 years at West Ham United as Football in the Community Manager.[6] Roger Morgan coached David Beckham as a youngster.

Morgan's identical twin brother Ian also played for QPR. They adopted different hairstyles in order to tell them apart when playing in the same team.[6]
