Queens Park Rangers Football Club, also known as QPR, is an English association football club based in White City, London. The club originated from a merger between St Judes and Christchurch Rangers in 1886, both of whom were founded in 1882. Initially an amateur side, who played in the West London League, they joined the Southern Football League when they turned professional in 1898. After they won the league during the 1907–1908 season, they participated in the first Charity Shield match and lost to Manchester United in a replay. They joined the Football League Third Division in 1920, and in 1967 became the first Third Division side to win the League Cup. They have won four divisional titles in the English football league system, two second tier and two in the third. Their best placed finish in the system was as runners-up in the Football League First Division in the 1975–76 season, while the best achievement in the FA Cup was also as runners-up, in the 1981–82 competition.

As of the end of the 2013–14 season, the team have spent 40 seasons in the third tier of the English football league system, 26 in the second and 22 in the top tier. The table details the team's achievements and the top goalscorer in senior first-team competitions from their first professional season in the Southern Football League in 1899–1900 to the end of the most recently completed season. It includes the tournaments that QPR participated in during the First and Second World Wars, which are not counted against players' official statistics as they were unofficial and considered to be friendlies.

History[edit]

In 1882, two West London based youth teams formed, St Judes and Christchurch Rangers. Following a game between the sides in 1886, a merger was proposed. The team's name was suggested as the majority of players came from the district of Queen's Park.[1] Their first competitive match came on 1 November 1890, against Tottenham Hotspur in the London Senior Cup. They drew the game 1–1 at home, but lost 2–1 in the replay.[1] Other tournaments they took part in during these early years included the West London Challenge Cup and the West London Observer Cup. Rangers joined the West London League in 1892, and won their first trophy in the same year, the aforementioned West London Observer Cup. They defeated West London League Champions Fulham 3–2 in the final.[1] In 1895–96, QPR entered the FA Cup for the first time, but were knocked out of the competition by Old St Stephen's in the replay of their first matchup after drawing at home.[2]

The club turned professional on 28 December 1898, following a disagreement over a punishment on the team inflicted by the London Football Association after the sending off of Sammy Brooks. The team withdrew from all London FA competitions and successfully applied to join the Southern Football League.[3] On 9 September 1899, they played their first professional match, again against Tottenham Hotspur, losing 1–0.[4] Seven days later they won their first professional match by beating New Brompton. In their first professional season, they finished eighth in the league and reached the second round of the FA Cup.[4]

A move to a 60,000 capacity stadium, in Park Royal, was followed in 1908 when the club won the Southern League for the first time. QPR qualified to play in the first Charity Shield match against Manchester United. Rangers drew 1–1, only to lose 4–0 in the replay.[4] The team resigned from the Southern League, having won it and were expecting to be elected to the Football League Second Division as Stoke City had resigned.[5] However, eighth placed Tottenham were elected instead, which caused QPR to seek re-admission to the Southern League. Because the fixture list had already been set, they had to play the following season entirely in mid-week matches. Normal fixtures for the club resumed during the following season, and a second Southern League title followed in 1911–12.[6][7]

During the First World War, QPR took part in the wartime London Combination Leagues, playing against many teams who were in the Football League.[8] After the war QPR joined those teams in 1920–21, when the club was elected to join the Football League Third Division.[9] They finished third in their first season behind Crystal Palace and Southampton.[4] In 1923–24 they finished bottom of the Third Division and had to apply for re-election.[10] This happened again in 1925–26 when they ended the season on 21 points, a record low for the division.[4] The following season they took on their modern team strip of blue and white hoops.[11] George Goddard set a club record in 1927–28 by scoring 37 league goals, and the team set a record scoreline when they defeated Merthyr Town 8–0.[4]

During the Second World War, QPR again played in wartime leagues,[12] the team achieved promotion afterwards to the Second Division for the first time in 1948 when they won the Third Division.[4] The initial stay in the higher tier lasted for four seasons, before they were relegated in 1952. The 1961–62 season saw the club score a record 111 goals in the Third Division. In 1965–66 the club finished third in the league, having signed Rodney Marsh from Fulham the following season, when they won Division Three once more and became the first Third Division side to win the League Cup.[4]

They were promoted once more in 1967–68, reaching the Football League Division One for the first time, although the excursion only lasted a single season before they were relegated.[13] They finished second in Division Two in 1972–73 and were promoted once more. They stayed up this time, and in 1975–76 they were runners-up in Division One, losing out to champions Liverpool by a single point.[14] This qualified them for European competition for the first time, and the following season they took part in the UEFA Cup, reaching the quarter-finals.[15] The 1977–78 season saw them fighting against relegation, eventually being safe, again by a single point. The following season they were not so lucky, and were relegated after finishing in 20th place.[16][17]

Terry Venables was appointed as manager on 14 October 1980.[18] In 1982 QPR reached the FA Cup Final for the first time, and drew 1–1 against London rivals Tottenham, but lost 1–0 in the replay courtesy of a penalty scored by Glenn Hoddle.[19] The 1982–83 season saw QPR return once more to the First Division, and finish in fifth place with Venables leaving to join Barcelona. They qualified for the second time for Europe, they only reached the Second Round of the UEFA Cup on this occasion before being knocked out by Partizan Belgrade over two legs due to the away goals rule. They returned to Wembley once more in 1986 when they lost in the final of the League Cup to Oxford United.[4]

The team remained in the First Division until the formation of the FA Premier League in 1992, with the club finishing in 5th place in the first season of the new league.[20] They were relegated in the 1995–96 season to the now second tier First Division.[21] After missing out on a play-off spot in their first season, they narrowly avoided being relegated in their second season. The 1998–99 season again saw them avoid relegation on the last day of the season. The new millennium saw them finish 9th in 1999–2000, again missing out on a play-off berth. However in 2000–01 the club entered administration and were relegated to the Second Division.[4] The team finish mid-table in their first season, and reached the play-off final in their second season. In 2003–04 they finished in second position, seeing them promoted back up, this time to the newly renamed Football League Championship.[4]

The team avoid relegation in 2005–06 finishing in 21st place, and finished in the lower half of the table in 2006–07.[4] On 1 September 2007, it was announced that Flavio Briatore and Bernie Ecclestone had made an offer for the club, with Briatore joining the board.[4] Despite the influx of funds, the team started the season poorly and was rooted to the bottom of the table. The club terminated the contract of manager John Gregory, and began a turnover which saw seven different managers between October 2007 and February 2009, when Briatore stepped down as Chairman of QPR Holdings Ltd. They finished the 2010–11 season as champions of the Football League Championship, gaining promotion back to the Premier League.[4]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Divisions are sorted according to their level within the English football league system at the time.
  2. ^ In seasons when the club played in more than one league, the column is sorted by the league with the most games, with the exception of the 1939–40 season.
  3. ^ Beginning with the 1925–26 season, the FA Cup was structured so that the third round proper contained 64 teams. Prior to that date, the structure had varied, so rounds are not directly comparable to the round of the same name after 1925.[22][23]
  4. ^ The Football League Cup competition started in the 1960–61 season.[24]
  5. ^ Includes goals scored in all first-team competitions as listed in this table, including wartime competitions.
  6. ^ In 1920, the Football League formed a third division comprising all of the Southern League First Division clubs.[37]
  7. ^ Goddard scored 37 goals in the Third Division South.[38]
  8. ^ The 1938–39 Third Division South Cup was never completed.[39]
  9. ^ When the Second World War began, the 1939–40 Football League season was abandoned with three matches played and QPR in 16th position.[40]
  10. ^ The cup consisted of an initial league round followed by a final.[41]
  11. ^ As the league during this season consisted of teams who each played a different number of games, goal average was used to rank the teams.[42]
  12. ^ The FA Cup was contested in 1945–46. From the first round proper to the sixth round (quarter-final), results were determined on aggregate score over two legs.[22]
  13. ^ Allen scored 30 goals in the Third Division.[38]
  14. ^ Marsh scored 30 goals in the Third Division.[38]
  15. ^ Givens scored 23 goals in the Third Division.[38]
  16. ^ Allen scored 28 goals in the Second Division.[38]
  17. ^ The 1981–82 season saw the introduction of three points for a win instead of two.[43]
  18. ^ Rangers drew 1–1 with Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley Stadium in the 1982 FA Cup Final, losing 1–0 in the replay.[44]
