He made his debut against Black heath on the 14th March 1936. His final game was against an invitation team. This was played on the 31st January 1942 v Welfare Match West XV.
In 1938 Roy Harris was unable to accept the Captaincy
In 1938. Roy Harris had been elected as Club Captain. But was unable to accept the post. He was a keen cricketer. And was away with Taunton School’s six weeks’ cricket tour of the West Indies. And, this meant he would not be returning until the end of September that year.
Three Bath Rugby Club Greats – Roy Harris, Kenneth Foss, and Fred Unwin
Also, Harris had teaching commitments at the school. This would preclude him from attending regular training and selection. And although he would not miss many matches. He felt it only fair that he decline the post. Mr. Kenneth J Foss (Clifton College, Clifton, and Gloucestershire) was appointed in his place. Prop Forward Fred Unwin became deputy to Foss. But, Unwin a Pilot Officer was reported missing whilst in action in 1945.
Harris’s was released from School duties for most Saturdays to play for Bath Rugby Club. It was fortunate that his headmaster at Taunton, was none other than Crichton-Miller. He was the former Bath stalwart, and Scottish forward. In 1938 F Unwin, J S Grundy, and R Harris were all schoolmasters. And not forgetting Eddie Simpkins, the honorary secretary of Oldfield School.
