Saturday 4th March 1967 – Fourth Account

Posted on by Site Admin

Having been present at Griffin Park on the night in 1962 when George Francis missed an open goal (for Brentford) against Grimsby Town, my father, who’d supported QPR since the early 20’s, resigned himself to the fact that he’d never see the team get back into Division 2 in his lifetime. There was little to encourage him to think otherwise when, after missing promotion by three points that year, we failed to achieve even mid-table finishes in the three Seasons … Continue reading

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Goodchild, Coyne, Brown, O’Brien, Goode, Howell, Folkes, Maguire, St.Aimie, Balanta, Arthur Unused subs: Crowther, Ford, Vanterpool ¬† The line up was almost the same as in last week’s win at Northampton, James Folkes started, Josh Ford was on the bench and Romone Rose was still suspended. It was a beautiful sunny day in the Sussex countryside but with it came a very nervous start, from the spectators that is ! The boys started off well enough although the downward … Continue reading

Northampton Town U18 1 – 3 QPR U18

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Goodchild, Ford, Goode, Howell, Brown, Maguire, O’Brien, Coyne, Arthur, St.Aimie, Balanta Subs Not Used: Crowther, Vanterpool, Bazzaq, trialist Rangers came away with a fully deserved three points from a sunny Northamptonshire but left it late to secure the win that keeps their title hopes well and truly alive. With an hour gone, a 0-0 draw was looking a real possibility but to come back from conceding the first goal three quarters of the way through this vital game, showed … Continue reading

QPR Screen References: No.3

¬†The Boys From The Bush TV Series (3 Episodes) I taped this legendary television series when they went out on the BBC in 1991 and 1992. They were written by R’s fan, Douglas Livingstone and revolve around, ‘Reg Toomer’ (Tim Healy) and ‘Dennis Tontine’ (Chris Haywood) who are partners in a sort of bungling Detective/Marriage Agency in Melbourne, Australia. Reg and the missus Doris had emigrated from Shepherd’s Bush and Dennis arrived from somewhere in the Australian outback, hence ‘The … Continue reading

QPR U18 3 – 2 Leyton Orient U18

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Goodchild, Coyne, Goode, Howell, Brown, Maguire, O’Brien, St.Aimie, Arthur, Rose, Balanta Unused Subs: Crowther, Ford, Smith, Razzaq, trialist¬† ¬† Another vital three points was secured by Romone Rose’s tremendous strike seven minutes from time. Both sides contributed to an entertaining game that was played on a pitch that was very firm but rather uneven although thankfully the usual Harlington high winds were not so much in evidence. In the 1st half, there were chances and goals at either end … Continue reading

I had heard that Dave Beasant was an R’s fan and a few years ago I saw a copy of his book, ‘Tales Of The Unexpected ‚Äì The D.B Story’ in one of my local Charity shops. I flicked through it a few times for references to the Rangers but found no sign of anything at the time.¬† As it was only 40p, I bought it anyway. Sometime later I found the un-read book in a big sort out at … Continue reading

QPR U18 3 – 1 Colchester United U18

Posted on by Site Admin

¬† Team: Crowther, Coyne, trialist, Goode, Brown, Folkes, O’Brien, St.Aimie, Arthur, Rose, Balanta ¬† A vital three points for the young R’s in a game dominated by the brisk wind that blew across the pitch from corner to corner. With very little rain in recent weeks, the pitch was rather firm and it proved to be difficult for either team to get the ball down and pass, despite their best efforts. Rangers kicked off with the wind blowing over their … Continue reading
