Queens Park Rangers at Kensal Rise

July 14, 1902
It having been found impracticable to remain at the Latimer Road ground, and the negotiations for the suggested new enclosure in Wood Lane having fallen through, arrangements have just been concluded with the lease of the Kensal Rise Athletic ground for the use of that enclosure by Queens Park Rangers. The ground is, of course, well known to all followers of the game, and is fed by a constant service of trains and omnibuses.

The Rangers’ team are now complete, and will be selected from the following: Harry Collins and Jack Leather, goal; Jack White, George Newlands, John Edwards (Gray’s United) and Rance (Chesham Generals), backs; Jack Bowman, Alf Hitch, Harry Skinner, Ben Freeman, John Musslewhite, and Clipsham, half-backs; Robert Colvin (Luton), John Hamilton (Millwall), Harry Abbott (Blackburn Rovers), Walter Busby (Wellington), Tom Wilson (Aston Villa and Millwall), Arthur King, Bill Keech, Handford, Mayo (Gray’s United), Jordan, and D. Hookes, forwards.
