John Clifford, or “gramps” to the QPR Report message board, produced his book of memories of “The Old Days” largely at his own expense. He takes the reader from 1939, through the War years and then right up to 1970 where he chose to draw a line. Work commitments and family life meant that he was unable to get to as many games as before.
Rangers legend Mark Lazarus has written the Foreword and former Club Secretary Ron Phillips also contributes with an article and the Introduction. Not only is the book a fascinating read, but all the proceeds will go to the ‘QPR in the Community Trust’. John will be presenting a cheque for over ¬£1,300 to Andy Evans on Tuesday.
I think there are a number of other R’s fans who can identify themselves with John’s final word in the Epilogue: “Yes, it’s a different football world now – and, much as I enjoy the game and will continue to do so, I think there is more than just a little bit of me which perhaps rather preferred “The Old Days”.
UK orders – ¬£5.00 plus ¬£2.70 postage and packing.
