In Memory Of Martin Fitzmaurice: 3rd June 1940 – 14th April 2016

Posted on by Site Admin

It was sad to hear the recent news that the famous professional darts scorer/announcer/Master of Ceremonies and one time QPR supporter, Martin Fitzmaurice, had passed away. Martin was well known for that elongated announcement: “One hundred…AND EIGHTY’ which belted out at darts championship tournaments. But he was also equally responsible for a chant when he attended games at Loftus Road during the 1950’s and early 1960’s. It went something like this: ‘Chin Chin Chin, Oi Oi Oi, Chin Chin Chin, … Continue reading

Cardiff City (0) – QPR (0)

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Ingram, Onuoha, Hall, Hill, Konchesky, Luongo, Faurlin, Henry, Chery (El Khayati), Phillips (Washington), Polter (Gladwin) Subs Not Used: Lumley, Kpekawa, Petrasso, Hoilett Attendance: 27,874 (including 840 R’s fans) Cardiff City’s Championship play-off hopes took a big hit as they failed to beat QPR at the Cardiff City Stadium. A poor first-half saw both sides fail to register a shot on target, but both might have snatched the points in an entertaining second period. Sammy Ameobi shot over in injury … Continue reading

QPR‘s first real effort ended up just wide of the Birmingham goal following a good run and great ball to the far post. The visitors then forced Matthew Hall into a flying save, which then went … Continue reading

The West Ham Ladies play at the home of AFC Hornchurch, who also share the stadium with Havering Athletics Club, hence the running track around the perimeter of the pitch. Admission was just a pound and despite the promise of a programme, none were forthcoming. We made … Continue reading

Robert Sinclair Grant was born on 14th April 1932 and grew up in Hammersmith at 20 Rivercourt Road. His family also had local connections with Wolverton Gardens and Weltje Road.
