I managed to pick up a couple of loose pages a while ago that had been extracted from a 1950’s football book, titled: ‘A Foul, Mr Howell? Or, is this just an Accident? The caption reads: ‘Should Mr Denis Howell, the referee, give a free kick against Sam Burton, the Swindon Town goalkeeper? Arthur Longbottom, the Queen’s Park Rangers’ inside-right, appeals for a foul. Judge for yourself from the picture, but we can tell you that there was no whistle … Continue reading

The 1967 Lawrence Sports Advert Featuring a QPR Team Group

Posted on by Steve Russell

What turned into a bit of a series (honest!), so far I’ve included a 1980’s Hoover advert featuring Alan McDonald, and then there was Phil Parkes’ endorsement of Cossack Hairspray. Also Dave Thomas and Don Givens were used in a campaign by Gola in the 70’s. This latest one, which appeared in September 1967 for Lawrence Sports, featured a Rangers team group alongside Enfield FC, with the headline: ‘Winners All the Way’. Apart from the R’s, there were other notable … Continue reading

QPR U23 (1) – Bristol City U23 (3)

Posted on by ChrisPTenner

Four of our side were new to me but I haven’t seen a reserve game since early November. We fell behind within 90 seconds of the start. Bristol City had a free kick on the left touch line. The ball was curled into the six-yard box and the City No.4 got the touch to score from about … Continue reading
