Posted on by Site Admin

For anyone that didn’t get to read Kevin Gallen’s amazing interview with Yann Tear in the local Gazette last Friday, it’s reproduced below. Well done to Kev for his honesty and speaking out publicly:- It is probably just as well for Rangers that Kevin Gallen is forced to sit out this weekend’s clash against Plymouth at Loftus Road.

Saturday 4th March 1967 – Second Account

Posted on by Site Admin

I was 19 at the time and the years between 1964 and 1968 I think, were the best ever (I hope my wife understands) Everything was great, we were a Club on the up, Gregory was Chairman, Stock was the Manager, Keen was Captain and for a 3rd Division team, we had one of the League’s biggest stars, Rodney Marsh. Life was good, the music around then was brilliant. The Rolling Stones were and still are, my favourite band. Janis … Continue reading

St.Dunstan’s Church, East Acton

¬† Gary Waddock became the new Head of the Centre Of Excellence and brought in our next Coach. Justin Skinner. He was the first ex-pro we had as Coach. He was what I called at the time, a ‘Super Coach’. He had everything, he had respect from the boys, a sense of humour and used some original ideas in his coaching sessions. I remember on one occasion when he brought along a load of broom handles and asked the boys … Continue reading

A Word From Robert Elms…..

Posted on by Site Admin

My family were QPR on both sides‚Ķ..both sides of the Westway that is. My Father’s lot were from Latimer Road, while my Mum’s mob hailed from East Acton, so Loftus Road was full of Aunts, Uncles and Cousins and some of them are still regulars. I first visited the hallowed ground as a six year old in 1966 with my Dad. We stood on the mud bank where the South Africa Road Stand now is and he explained his dreams … Continue reading

After that the game … Continue reading
