Puma Youth Alliance Cup Semi Final Team: Crowther, Coyne, Brown, O’Brien, Ford, Lawrence, Morgan-Cummings, Smith, German, Rose, Arthur.¬† Although the R’s were drawn away, it was agreed that this game would be played at Harlington as Layer Road wasn’t available and the pitches their Youth sides usually use weren’t playable.

Saturday 11th May 1968 – Second Account

Posted on by Site Admin

The last game of the Season, and as an 11 year old, it all seemed so simple to me. All we had to do was play Aston Villa away, beat them, and we would be in the ‘Promised Land’ (the old First Division) for the first time in our history. I was lucky enough to be taken to the game by a family friend. We set off early in the morning in his old Zephyr 4, with our blue and … Continue reading

Gentleman Jim

Posted on by Site Admin

We received the very sad news in December that Jim Langley had died. I remember him as a great character, a gentleman and a QPR legend.
