The 1991 Open Day was held at the Guinness Sports and Social Club. It also featured a cricket match between a Guinness Club X1 and a QPR FC X1.
Supporters Club Manager, the late Neil Roberts, wrote the following programme notes:
‘Before going any further, on behalf of QPR FC, I extend thanks to Guinness Sports and Social Club, in particular Mrs Christine Hubbard, for all their help in arranging this event, our Annual Open Day; indeed for even allowing us to hold our day on their excellent grounds.
All being well, we should have another good turn out of our faithful supporters here today, and I hope you will take the opportunity to mix, chat with the players and staff of our club, as they are all very approachable, in particular our new manager, Gerry Francis, who you will find is a real supporters man, and obviously has a great devotion to Rangers.
Also, please make an effort to greet our newer players and show them just how welcome they are at Loftus Road. For most of the new players it will be their first opportunity to actually meet you, the fans who follow them through thick and thin.’
Neil also went on to mention the ticket situation for the first game of the season at Highbury. It wasn’t all-ticket and there were: ‘4,500 ticket (terrace) spaces at ¬£8 and ¬£4 for juniors and seniors’. There were also 440 seats available at ¬£10 each.
The timetable of events was listed as follows:
11.00: Players arrive
11.30: Meet the players
1.00: Break for lunch
2.15: Start of play
6.30: Close of play
The R’s went on to draw that game with Arsenal. Dennis Bailey made his debut and scored our goal.
