Posted on by Steve Russell

The following article was written by Eric Nicholls and appeared in ‘Goal’ magazine on 18th May 1974: ‘Every time Gordon Jago pinned up the Queen’s Park Rangers first-team sheet, he spared a thought for five young men, waiting in the shadows of reserve football for a chance to break into the big time.
