Fans of both Brentford and Queens Park Rangers are being called upon to put their hands together in the tenth minute of tomorrow’s televised West London derby at Loftus Road as a mark of solidarity and support for Stan Bowles – the iconic number ten who played for both the Bees and the Rs – but who is now fighting Alzheimer’s.

This simple, but significant, round of applause gesture will not only raise awareness of a mental condition that seems to be effecting an ever-increasing amount of people in society, but the organizers hope it will help with their aim of a benefit match for Bowles, who needs the support of the clubs he once played for.

So, whether you’re at the game in person, or will be watching it live on television, play your part and put your hands together in appreciation for a wonderfully gifted player who was a joy to watch – no matter which team you support.
