It is with deep sadness the club learned today of the passing of Jimmy Andrews who played for QPR between 1959 and 1962, and briefly managed the club in 1965.
Andrews - pictured middle row, far right above - who made 82 appearances for the R’s and scored 15 goals, died on Wednesday 12th September following a long illness. He was 85.
Andrews was born in Scotland and began his footballing career with Dundee in 1946, where he remained for five years before heading for London, and West Ham United.
The left winger spent five years with the Hammers before the short move to Leyton Orient in 1956. After a three-year spell with the O’s, Andrews joined QPR where he stayed until retiring from the game.
Andrews joined the coaching staff of the R’s and enjoyed a brief stint as manager of the club when Alec Stock was named General Manager in 1965.
The thoughts of QPR FC are with his family and friends at this difficult time.
May he rest in peace.
