Steve Flannery, who played a crucial early role in raising interest in a Stan Bowles commemorative match, has said he is pleased with the progress the club is making in bringing the plans to life.
Queens Park Rangers confirmed that their home friendly this summer, which is scheduled to be held over the weekend of July 29/30, will be in honour of the former-player who is renowned as one of the club's all-time greatest players.
Club CEO, Lee Hoos, and other club officials have been working closely with Bowles' family for some time to arrange to honour the legend, who is suffering with Alzheimer's.
Bowles scored 97 goals in 315 appearances for the club between 1972 and 1979, firmly securing his place amongst the Hoops' elite.
The match will form part of the club's tributes to its former heroes, through the ex-players association, the Forever R's Club , which was formed earlier this season.
Speaking of the prospect of the benefit match, Steve Flannery, who played an instrumental early role in raising early awareness of the cause said: "We're pleased the progress is being made by the club to arrange the match, and although their are two potential dates at the moment, we are expecting a final date and opposition to be announced very soon."
