Ex-QPR Birthdays

Former QPR Defender, Kenny Sansom Turns 49. Born September 26, 1958. Sansom was signed by Trevor Francis from Jim Smith's Newcastle in the summer of 1989 (basically in a swop for Wayne Fereday). He was sold to Coventry almost two years later, in March 1991. Sansom hit his prime before coming to QPR with Crystal Palace and Arsenal (and England). Sansom was the trade when Clive Allen left Arsenal for Crystal Palace after only a few weeks (and before playing a game) Sansom See also Sansom/Wikipedia

Tomorrow is the birthday of former QPR defensive Midfielder, John Delve. Delve, 54: Born September 27, 1953. A "Home grown" player was given his debut by Gordon Jago in December 1972 at Luton, Delve was a defensive midfielder who along with another home-grown youngster, John Beck, seemed to be the perennial substitute for much of our 1972/1973 season. For the next couple of season, Delve and Beck were QPR midfield back ups -especially to Gerry Francis - either when Francis was injured, or if Francis played forward (as he did a couple of times when Stan Bowles was suspended!). Delve joned Plymouth in July 1974.
