75 Years of Supporting #QPR: Congratulations to John "Gramps" Clifford
QPR Fan, John "Gramps" Clifford
recently marked a truly amazing Milestone: 75 Years of Supporting QPR.
From the days of QPR in the Old Division III South - to the 1948 Promotion...and 1952 relegation; the years in the wilderness; 1967 and on...and so forth
Johnvery first game was at Loftus Road pre-World War II: February 25, 1939. In the words of John " QPR 1 Torquay United 1. Our goal scored by inside
right (number 8) Harry Lowe. As usual, we were 0-1 down before getting
the equaliser (nothing new there) and Alec Stock played in that game.
Since then John many hundreds - if not thousands of player- have worn the QPR shirt and more than 40 QPR Managers and Acting Managers over this period (although just four manager - Ted Vizard, Dave Mangall, Jack Taylor and Alec Stock for the first almost 30 years of John's supporting days!)
