A series of items celebrating former Brentford star Stan Bowles have been produced. The 69-year-old former England international played for The Bees between 1981 and 1984 and is remembered fondly by Bees fans. Stan won five caps during a career that saw him play most notably for Queens Park Rangers but also for Manchester City, Nottingham Forest and Leyton Orient among others.
It was announced in 2015 that Stan is suffering from Alzheimer's disease. Since the announcement fans of the clubs Stan played for have raised funds to support his family in paying for his care. There has also been awareness raised of the disease and its consequences. A collection was held at Griffin Park when Brentford played Queens Park Rangers last year where fans from both clubs donated.
Now, merchandise has been made so fans can buy items to remember Stan and also contribute to his care. These items include mugs and coasters and the full range can be seen here. Stan's fund-raising page can be seen here.
