Stuart Leary

Post by 222gers » Mon Mar 05, 2018 1:27 pm

Just back from an appointment with a new doctor named Stuart Leary which put me in mind of the Stuart Leary that played centre forward for us. Maybe some older posters may remember him - a cultured ball playing centre forward who also played cricket for Kent. Just as well as I suppose he only got paid about £11 a week with us. He was one of the few bright moments of playing at the White City Stadium.

I remember being very pleased when we signed him, 222. I think he was South African and that he played previously for Charlton.
It's simple. Score more goals than they do.

He was found dead on Table Mountain outside Cape Town in 1988 - he was 55 years old.
Saturday 9th November 1968: QPR V Burnley in the First Division - I saw the Hoops for the first time and my obsession began!

Remember:
Growing old is inevitable.
Growing up is optional.

That's right, I've been reading up on him. He did national service in the RAF. I think he was the first really classy player I ever saw for the Rangers except maybe Tony Ingham.
