Fundraising match to help QPR great with Alzheimer's

  • Video report by ITV News Correspondent Nina Nannar

In his heyday, Stan Bowles was one of the legendary characters of English football.

Tremendously gifted - and always the rebel - he was one of few to be mentioned in the same breath as George Best.

Now, though, the spark that once lit up the terraces has been dimmed by Alzheimer's - and a benefit match to help him has been organised.

Matt Smith has made the short move across west London by joining QPR from Fulham.

The tall striker has signed a three-and-a-half year contract at Loftus Road, after QPR paid an undisclosed fee for his services.

QPR is a club with a terrific history and heritage so it’s a big honour for me to be a QPR player. I’m delighted to be here and want to take this fantastic opportunity with both hands.

I want to get back playing regularly and help QPR win games. If my goals can contribute to that, then all the better, but as long as we’re winning games, that’s the most important thing.

I can’t wait to experience what it will feel like to pull on a Rangers shirt and play in front of the fans at Loftus Road.

QPR have signed Manchester United midfielder Sean Goss for an undisclosed fee.

The 21-year-old has joined the Sky Bet Championship side on a three-and-a-half-year deal, becoming their second January capture after Kazenga LuaLua arrived from Brighton on loan for the rest of the season.

Goss left Exeter for Old Trafford in 2012 and has impressed for United's reserves this season.

QPR boss Ian Holloway told the club's official website: "I'm delighted we've managed to bring Sean to QPR.

"He's a young player with great potential - and I feel there are players at Manchester United who can get a little bit lost, because they've always got the best of the best of the best.

"I've managed to borrow one or two from United over the years, but sometimes you spot one and you want him - and that's exactly why I've brought Gossy here."

Goss added: "I'm delighted that the deal is done - absolutely buzzing."

QPR keen on signing Man United youngster

QPR are interested in signing Manchester United midfielder Sean Goss, Press Association Sport understands.

The 21-year-old midfielder moved to Old Trafford from Exeter in 2012 and has impressed for Nicky Butt's reserves this season.

Goss' performances have attracted admiring glances and QPR are understood to be keen to bring in the midfielder, preferably permanently if not on loan.

The boyhood United fan, born in Germany, has yet to make a competitive first-team appearance for the club, but was on the bench for the Premier League match at Watford in November 2015.

Goss is a regular in United's reserves and his fine free-kick set-up Matty Willock's late winner in Monday's 1-0 win at Liverpool.

QPR sit 17th in the Sky Bet Championship, with Ian Holloway's men on a three-match winning streak in the league after ending a run of six straight losses.

Brighton leapfrogged Newcastle at the top of the Championship with a comfortable 3-0 victory over 10-man QPR at the Amex Stadium.

A fine early goal from Sam Baldock put the Seagulls on their way to a fourth successive win before a Glenn Murray penalty and an Anthony Knockaert strike extended Albion's unbeaten run to 17 games.

Struggling Rangers, reduced to 10 men early in the second half when captain Nedum Onuoha received a straight red card, have now lost their last six matches and failed to score in five of them.
