Stanley Bowles was an English professional footballer known for his skills as a forward.

Born: December 24, 1948, Collyhurst, England

Died: February 24, 2024, Manchester, England

In the 70s and 80s he gained a reputation as one of the game’s great mavericks. He made 315 appearances for QPR and scored 97 goals for the Loftus Road club. He spent just over seven years at QPR, playing a central role in arguably the club’s greatest-ever team becoming a QPR folk hero in the process.

Here is the SUFFOLK GAZETTE’s unique tribute to him in Haiku form…
