Posted on by Steve Russell

Team: Roberts, McDermott, Brevett, Ready, McDonald, Barker, Brazier, Peacock, Sinclair, Spencer, Dichio Attendance: 10,718 The R’s travelled to the Alfred McAlpine Stadium on 21st December 1996 and Robert Gledhill’s match report appeared two days later: ‘Lack of strength in depth rather than controversial refereeing decisions is the major factor behind Huddersfield Town being sucked towards the First Division relegation zone. Manager Brian Horton is well aware of the need to strengthen but funds are limited as most of his cash … Continue reading

Posted on by Steve Russell

U21 Professional Development League 2 (South) Team: Lumley, Shodipo (Wise), Kakay, Jones, Haran, Mitchell, Mulraney, Diakite (Sutherland), Best, Manning, Prohouly (Crichlow) Sub Not Used: Hudnott On a very overcast afternoon at Harlington, the hope was that the windy conditions would help keep the rain at bay. As we took up our positions on pitch ‘number three’, with no team sheet available, we scanned the QPR players on view. We didn’t doubt Keith when he assured us that Leon Best was … Continue reading

West Bromwich Albion still want to sign … Continue reading

Visitor preview Q&A – Rotherham United

Posted on by Steve Sayce

Ahead of ‘Stan Bowles Day’, the home fixture with Rotherham United, we spoke to budding writer and Millers fan George Sanders (@GeorgeyRUFC). Here’s what he told us… Q. The Millers secured their Championship status on the penultimate day of last season. How did survival feel? A. It felt amazing, it was the same kind of relief and joy we felt when we won at Wembley. To be deducted points and still remain a Championship side was the best feeling ever! … Continue reading

QPR U18 (0) – Hull City U18 (1)

U18 Professional Development League 2 Team: Todd, Matthews, Williams, Donnellan (Bettache), Arthur, Fox (Eales), Crichlow, Folkes, Darbyshire, Clarke (Alfa), Bowler Subs Not Used: Mesias, Dauti I was informed upon arrival at the gate that I couldn’t access the training ground until 10.30am. Find all this nonsense totally unnecessary. The U18’s had lost their opening game 3-2 at Huddersfield the previous week. Paul Furlong made a couple of changes for the visit of Hull City. The first decent effort fell to … Continue reading

QPR U21 (5) – Huddersfield Town U21 (5)

Posted on by Site Admin

U21 Professional Development League 2 (South) Finished 5-5 – somehow? Incredibly it was 4-2 at half-time and the score flattered Huddersfield as we ran the show with the visitors scoring with their only ventures into our box. Writing this I’m still wondering how we didn’t win? We took the lead after about four minutes with Oscar Gobern scoring. Huddersfield equalised about 90 seconds later before Hoilett scored his first of a hat-trick. Once again we conceded to make it 2-2 … Continue reading

Very disappointed with the football we played. As said elsewhere, we are a team of strangers at the moment with players still settling in but there is … Continue reading
