Kenneth Westerberg emailed me the sad news recently that Fred Durrant had died after reading it on the Brentford website. Their Obituary read as follows:- ‘Brentford Football Club are saddened by the news that Fred Durrant passed away Friday afternoon, aged 88. He was the club’s oldest living player. Signed in 1939 by Harry Curtis from Folkestone Town, Fred made four appearances ‚Äì including four goals in six FA Cup appearances in the transitional season of 1945-46.

QPR U18 (2) – Dagenham & Redbridge U18 (1)

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Butler, Harriman, Waters, Ehmer, Parmenter, Olley, Sutherland, Doughty, Cox, Fernandez, Nanetti. Subs: O’Donnell, Bewick, Graham, Henry-Francis, Molloy. The pitch was bumpy and hard but it was a sunny morning at Harlington, no wind which was unusual and the absence of an aeroplane in the Heathrow skies, which was even more unusual. It was the visitors who could have taken the lead after around 10 minutes after they broke down the right. The Dagenham player got through two R’s defenders … Continue reading

Team: Cerny, Ramage, Gorkss, Tosic, Leigertwood, Buzsaky (Oastler), Faurlin, Ephraim, Taarabt (Cook), Vine, German (Simpson). Subs Not Used: Putnins, Brown, Parker, Priskin. Attendance: 13,171 This could also be called a ‘season of two halves’. As we all know, the corresponding game at Watford earlier in the season ended with Buzsaky getting all the headlines and not for his on-field performances. Last night, he’ll get all the headlines in what was an awful spectacle for both sets of fans. This game, … Continue reading

QPR v Cardiff City

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Cerny, Ramage, Leigertwood, Gorkss, Tosic, Buzsaky, Faurlin, Ephraim (Parker), Priskin (German), Taarabt, Simpson (Cook) Subs Not Used: Putnins, Hill, Oastler, Vine. Attendance: 12,832 I think the only reason that there was a slight delay with the Cardiff fans departing the stadium at the end of the game, was because they had continued with their celebrations. The Police seemed more content with restricting the movement of Rangers fans and eventually they went as far as to seal off the whole … Continue reading

Team: Cerny, Ramage, Stewart (Simpson), Gorkss, Tosic, Leigertwood, Buzsaky, Faurlin, Ephraim, Taarabt (Parker), Priskin. Subs Not Used: Putnins, Brown, Oastler, Cook, German. Attendance: 20,430 A terrible clash of heads resulted in Damion Stewart, worryingly, going down for some time before being rushed to hospital ! We didn’t realise how serious it was at the time. Simpson came on, Ramage went to centre back and Leigertwood moved over to fullback. Cerny was back in goal and he looked very comfortable throughout. … Continue reading

Derek Gibbs R.I.P.

Posted on by Site Admin

Derek William Gibbs died on November 19th 2009. I only found out about his sad passing when Declin gave me the latest issue of the excellent football retro magazine, ‘Backpass’. He was born in Fulham on 22nd December, 1934 and featured in the ‘Meet The Newcomer’ programme series in 1963: ‘The signing of Derek Gibbs, 28-year-old wing-half from Leyton Orient and Dick Whittaker from Peterborough has renewed a partnership which existed at Chelsea for many years. Both arrived at Chelsea … Continue reading

Attendance: 13,405 This was one of those games that you would describe as a ‚Äúsix pointer‚Äù for Rangers, whatever that means ? The team walked out into a Loftus Road not quite bathed in sunshine, but certainly lit up by it, yet the floodlights were strangely on from the beginning ? As per normal, we started off attacking … Continue reading

QPR Screen References: No.16 ‚Äì ‘The Sweeney’ ‚Äì Episode: ‘I Want The Man’

Posted on by Site Admin

Although there is no verbal reference to the R’s, this one is included because of the superb visual shots of Loftus Road. This episode is from Series 2 and was first transmitted at 9pm on 10th November, 1975. The opening scene shows Popeye, Regan’s ‘Snout’, calling him from a phone box facing towards Julie’s restaurant in Portland Road about two suspects who have just entered.
