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 made 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]
