#LoftusRoad100 event a hit in W12!

FOUR QPR legends brought the house down at Loftus Road on Tuesday night, as the club played host to the 'Stars of #LoftusRoad100' event.

Former R's quartet Phil Parkes, Bob Hazell, Kevin Gallen and Club Ambassador Andy Sinton were all in attendance in front of a sell-out crowd in the W12 Suite, in the campaign that sees the club celebrate the 100th anniversary of our time at Loftus Road.

In association with Zoom Enterprises, the latest Forever R's event kicked off with the foursome recalling their earliest memories of Loftus Road.

Their responses differed somewhat, as you'll see below.

Sinton: "My earliest memory was coming here to train with Brentford! Looking round the stadium, I said to myself I'd love to play here one day - and thankfully I did. It certainly lived up to expectation."

Parkes: "I played here for the Reserves - that was my first memory. We got beat 3-0 but I played really well. Les Allen pulled me into his office and told me I'd be in the first team the following Saturday against Leicester City, who had Peter Shilton in goal. Great memories."

Gallen: "I think I came to Loftus Road at about the age of four. Every kid at that age got sneaked in. Every Dad had a deal with the man on the turnstiles. He must've made a right few quid!"

Hazell: "I just loved Loftus Road and loved playing here with Stan Bowles. I loved being on the pitch with him at Loftus Road. He was such a special talent."

The stories and anecdotes continued throughout the 90-minute Q&A, with the panel and the audience enjoying plenty of laughs, and some tears, as the R's legends looked back on their time playing at our wonderful home.

It was left to Sinton to have the final word.

"It was a fantastic evening," he told

"I don't think the legends or the fans stopped laughing all night - and that says everything.

"To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Loftus Road with such a unique event was brilliant and I'd personally like to thank everyone who came along."
