Sir Alex mod­els an­niver­sary Queen’s Park FC home strip

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Queen’s Park FC brought in a very spe­cial per­son to model their spe­cial new home strip.

Sir Alex Fer­gu­son, who made his se­nior de­but for the club as a teenager, was only too happy to sport the kit for the club.

Scot­land’s old­est se­nior foot­ball club are mark­ing their 150th an­niver­sary next year and to mark that event, they have re­leased a new strip in the club’s orig­i­nal colours of navy shirt, grey shorts and navy socks.

The kit will be worn at all home games this sea­son in­stead of their more widely-known black and white hoops.

Sir Alex, widely re­garded as the great­est Bri­tish man­ager of all time, played for the club at the age of just 15 in 1958 in a game against Stran­raer.

And he was thrilled to be back in Queen’s colours.

He said: “I was de­lighted when Queen’s Park got in touch and asked me to help launch their new strip.

“Scot­land colours are known across the world and it fan­tas­tic that the club’s role as pi­o­neers in the game is recog­nised in this way.”

The 74-year-old was pic­tured proudly wearing the team’s colours and hold­ing a yel­low foot­ball.
