R’s fan Margaret Bunday was featured on 7th November 1953 in the popular football weekly and to give it its full title, ‘Raich Carter’s Soccer Star.’
‘A familiar sight at Queen’s Park Rangers football ground is pretty Rangers’ supporter Margaret Bunday who lives at Godolphin Road, London W12. Dressed in her blue skirt embroidered with the names and figures of the team, she runs round the pitch ringing in “good luck” to the Rangers. Margaret who is 16-years-old, has been supporting the Rangers for three seasons; she never misses a home game, and very seldom one away. Naturally, Margaret has a favourite among the Rangers, although she likes all of them, but the lucky man is outside-left Ernie Shepherd, who’s No.11 she keeps in sight throughout the match from her position on the centre line. You see Ernie and Margaret photographed on our front cover.
With the children Margaret is very popular. Whenever she goes to an away game, she brings back programmes for them, and every time she runs round the pitch she stops at the children’s line to distribute “1d on the ball” tickets to those nearest.’
