This is a misconduct form for professional footballer Stanley ‘Stan’ Bowles from 1973 from a match between QPR versus Burnley Football Club at QPR’s South Africa Road stadium, Loftus Road in London.
The report details how Stanley Bowles was cautioned for ungentlemanly conduct for a high tackle on a player from Burnley.
Football player Stanley Bowles was born and raised in post-war Collyhurst in North Manchester in the the 1940s and was to become one of most talented, skillful and entertaining football players of the 1970s, significantly becoming a God to many Queens Park Rangers (QPR) fans who worshipped him. His career was however often coloured with controversy on and off the pitch and whilst he became one of the most famous and talented players of the 1970s, loved and adored by fans alike, his full potential at international level was never realized, gaining only 5 England caps.
