28th August 1973. QPR striker Stan Bowles in action against Norwich City during their opening home fixture of the season at Loftus Road.
Stan Bowles began his career as an apprentice at Manchester City, although his fiery temper resulted in him falling out with coach Malcolm Allison and being released after a series of off-field incidents. He was signed by Crewe Alexandra. In October 1971 he was signed by Carlisle United, at the time a Second Division club, scoring 13 goals in 36 appearances for the Cumbrians. After a managerial change at the club, he was sold to Queens Park Rangers (QPR) for £112,000 in September 1972.
