Ex-QPR Birthdays Today:

- Mick McGovern - 58 - Born February 15, 1951- At one time, a major QPR prospects, who didn't play too many QPR games. We sold him to Swindon and I believe he made his debut against QPR in 1971 or 1972 (QPR winning 5-0)

- Ernie Howe - 56 - Born February 15, 1953- Signed from Fulham for 50,000 by Frank Sibley, after we (foolishly) sold David Needham to the coming Champions, Nottingham Forrest for 140,000 pounds. (Needham has been Sexton's last signing six months earlier from Notts County, for 90,000 as a replacement for Frank McClintock)
