Flashback: Stan Bowles Scores His First QPR Hatrick: 40 Years Ago Today

    Forty years ago today: February 17, 1973, Stan Bowles scored his first QPR hattrick in a 5-0 win against a very poor Swindon team at Loftus Road. (Gerry Francis and Don Givens were the other QPR scorers).  And Gordon Jago/Bobby Campbell's QPR took another step towards a return to the First Division!
    Swindon had recently sold (future QPR!) Don Rogers to Crystal Palace and had Mick McGovern making his debut after his 10,000 pound transfer from QPR.R

 QPR's Team: Parkes, Clement Mancini Hazell Watson - Venables Francis Leach - Thomas Bowles Givens.
