Queen, Gerry St George's Primary School about 1951 I fancied myself as the fastest runner in school. Sports day 🤔 got left standing by a kid who was a year younger - Gerry Queen. I recollect when he joined St Mirren he bought a little MG sports car. Penile lad made good.

Queen, Gerry When I was 11 (1972), my dad took me to Wimbledon dog stadium one grey October Wednesday morning to watch his mutt time-trialing. Just along from us was Gerry Queen and a few other Palace players of the time who, i found out, had shares in a dog. Dad introduced me to Gerry; I was bowled over and deeply impressed that MY DAD knew Gerry Queen [through their mutual interest in dog racing]!!


Queen, Gerry I met my namesake at Norbury Park cica 1970 when he was managing a Sunday League side. I got my photo card signed by him and have it to this day. Still a Palace fan and very pleased to be at the match on Saturday 5-0 v Leicester and almost certainly securing our survival in the premiership 2018/9
