Former QPR stars Marc Bircham, Richard Langley, Rufus Brevett and Club Ambassador Andy Sinton provided a blast from the past as they starred in the 15th annual Football Aid event at Loftus Road.
In the early afternoon match, Langley's side defeated Bircham's team in a thrilling 9-3 encounter, which saw five second half goals from Tom Collins.
The real drama unfolded in the evening match, as Sinton's team fought back from 4-1 down to find themselves level at 4-4 on the 60-minute mark.
Agonosingly for Sinton's team, they conceded in the 82nd minute to allow Brevett's team a 5-4 victory in a thrilling encounter.
The match was supported by the QPR in the Community Trust, and CEO Andy Evans told the club's official website: "Football Aid at QPR is always a real highlight of our end-of-season events here at Loftus Road.
“To be able to give our fans the chance to play on the pitch and fulfil a lifetime ambition wearing the Hoops is important to us as a community club. For our fans to also play alongside legends of the club makes it extra special.
“For good causes to be able to benefit from everyone having such a good time means Football Aid does more than just provide an outstanding football experience, it also means we can benefit those most in need in the local community.
“Thank you to all the players, legends, Football Aid staff and QPR in the Community Trust for making the event so special.”
Football Aid’s CEO, David Dale, said: I’d like to express our most sincere thanks to everyone at QPR FC and QPR in the Community Trust for their truly magnificent support in helping to make the Football Aid events at Loftus Road such an overwhelming success. Everyone involved had a truly wonderful day and we are already looking forward to our annual event at Loftus Road next season.
QPR were one of the founding partners of Football Aid and since forming in 2001, the Scottish based charity have allowed over 17,000 football fans the chance to Live the Dream by playing on the hallowed turf of the Club they support, while in turn raising over £2.4m for charity. The funds raised from this year’s event will benefit the work of charitable project nominated by QPR in the Community Trust, as well as a project nominated by Football Aid’s parent charity Field of Dreams.
