LOFTUS Road welcomed home a host of QPR legends to roll back the years for Football Aid
Former R’s Kevin Gallen, Richard Langley, Andy Sinton, Rufus Brevett and Wayne Fereday lined-up alongside Rangers supporters for an afternoon to remember in W12.
Under-21s manager Steve Gallen was also in attendance, going head-to-head with brother Kevin in the first of two action-packed 90-minute games for charity.
“It’s nice to be back out there,” Kevin told www.qpr.co.uk
. “Just putting on the kit, playing out on the pitch for the first time in six or seven years. I quite fancied a kickabout too!
“It’s a great cause and a good opportunity to meet some fans too.”
Gallen netted over 50 times during his R's career but it was Sinton who arguably stole the show, celebrating four of his own during an afternoon which saw a whopping 19 goals scored in total.
The day marked the latest successful charity event organised by QPR in the Community Trust, who joined the Football Aid family in 2001 – offering the R’s faithful the unique opportunity to experience a matchday in the same way the likes of Charlie Austin and co. do every other week.
“I’d been looking forward to it for a long time," Gallen's former Rangers team-mate Langley added. "I’d had a lot of tweets from supporters and they loved it out there.
“It’s for a fantastic cause and there’s so many people that benefit from days like this. It’s going on all over the country so it’s great to be a part of it."
Since Football Aid's debut season in 2001, 535 games involving 14,000 players have taken place on a UK, European and National level as the charity initiative continues to deliver exciting and groundbreaking fundraising events that allow supporters to 'Live the Dream'.
