Also On This Day, August 29...
32 Years Ago: August 29th 1981 Terry Venables First Full QPR season (and QPR with their "Controversial artificial pitch"). with new signings John Gregory and Clive ALlen, began with a great away 3-1 win at Wrexham... Two goals from Clive Allen; one from Andy King.
QPR's Team for that opening game at Wrexham:
Fenwick Hazell Roeder Gregory
Waddock Francis King
Allen Stainrod Flanagan
By the time the Cup Final came around...Burridge, not liking the plastic pitch, had been replaced by Hucker; Andy King, after scoring in the opening 3 games was then sold to WBA (and played against QPR in the FA Cup Semi Final); Gerry Francis was sold to Coventry...and Gregory switched to midfield, where he was a scoring dynamo...While Currie returned from injury!
By the time of the replay, Allen was injured; Roeder was suspended (and the returned Wicks was cup tied)
46 Years ago today, QPR played Bristol City and went to the top of Division Two...August 29th, 1967 QPR 3 Bristol City 1

1908 FA Charity Shield
The 1908 FA Charity Shield was the first Charity Shield, a football match contested by the winners of the previous season's Football League and Southern League competitions. The match was played on 27 April 1908 between 1907–08 Football League winners Manchester United and 1907–08 Southern League champions Queens Park Rangers. The match was played at the neutral venue of Stamford Bridge, London, and ended as a 1–1 draw, goals coming from Billy Meredith for Manchester United and F. Cannon for Queens Park Rangers.
Since extra time was not played, and penalty shoot-outs did not exist in the early 1900s, the match went to a replay, also at Stamford Bridge. The replay was played four months after the original match, on 29 August 1908, and finished in a 4–0 victory for Manchester United, crowning them as the first ever Charity Shield winners. Jimmy Turnbull scored a hat-trick for United, the other goal coming from George Wall. The 1908 Charity Shield raised £1,275 for charity and is the only Charity or Community Shield to date to have required a replay. WIkipedia
