Welcome to my Rowdies Appreciation Blog

I had searched on "Google" for many years looking for information relating to the Tampa Bay Rowdies, who played in the North American Soccer League (NASL) between 1975 to 1984. They would continue till 1993, when the club folded.
A former Rowdies' player, Mike Connell has posted a website: but this only covers their NASL years, I wanted something that covered their entire history.
So Iam hopefuly going to do that here. It will probably take some time to do this but, I will hopefully have a good go at doing so.
For many years I have been trying to track down former Rowdies' players, as Iam trying to obtain the autograph of every player, coach to have been associated with the team. I still need 73 players to complete the enitre All-Time Roster 1975 to 1993.
I will also be adding scans of memorabilia from my own Rowdies collection.
Also, I would love to hear from former fans and players with their memories.
