  • Les Boyle RIP | Memories of Growing Up in White City / Shep. Bush

    What are your memories of growing up in White City / Shepherds Bush. What was it like supporting the Superhoops in the 50's, 60's 70' 80's & 90's around the manor?

    What do you miss, what would you bring back?

      I must away now, I can no longer tarry

      I must be guided without a stumble
      Into the arms I love the most

                        Johnny from Johns Hair Fashions on Uxbridge Road.

                        The man I'm referring to is the Old Man, pair of clippers in his hands was like a lawn mower, RIP. His son incidently (Seth) I believe is still the youngest player to have turned out for the Rangers, still works there to this day.
