QPR do their bit to support legend Stan
SOME clubs are criticised for forgetting about their old players, but no-one can accuse QPR of ignoring former star Stan Bowles.
Rangers held a special ‘Stan Bowles Day’ when Rotherham United visited Loftus Road yesterday. The date coincided with the 40th anniversary of the day QPR won 5-1 at reigning Division One champions Derby and Bowles scored a hat-trick.
Earlier this summer it was announced that the 66-year-old had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Fundraising yesterday is to be split between Bowles and the Alzheimer’s Society.
QPR wore shirts emblazoned with the Alzheimer’s Society’s logo yesterday to raise awareness of dementia and they will be signed by the players and auctioned off.
Tracy Bowles, Stan’s daughter, told the QPR website: “I can’t thank everyone enough for their support so far – it just goes to show what a wonderful club QPR is.”
