QPR do their bit to sup­port leg­end Stan

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS -

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.”
