Taylor Made For Rangers Game

Taylor Made For Rangers Game

Paul Taylor from Hertfordshire will take charge of the final game of the season at home to West Bromwich Albion.

Mr. Taylor who joined the referee`s list in 1997/98, has refereed the R`s 8 times in the past 11 years of his refereeing career.

The first was back in October 1997 as Rangers we demolished 4-2 at home by Charlton Athletic, where all Rangers could muster was a Mike Sheron brace. Later that season in February 1998, Mr Taylor witnesses 4 more goals at Loftus Road as Rangers drew 2-2 with Sheffield United.

Mr. Taylor was back at Loftus Road a year later presiding over Rangers fixture in December 1999, where in a 0-0 draw Chris Kiwomya was given his marching orders in the 76th minute. In the subsequent season however Mr. Taylor saw the better side of Kiwomya with the striker scoring a late goal away at Gillingham to secure a priceless victory for the R`s.

In their first season back in Division 2, the R`s played Blackpool at home in March 2002, with Richard Langley hitting a stunning strike in the loft end. It was Blackpool again for Mr. Taylor on the first game of the season in August 2003, as Rangers took their opponents apart in a 5-0 thrashing, with Richard Wellens getting himself sent off in the latter stages for persistent fouling.

The final game in which Mr. Taylor has taken charge of the R`s was back in October 2004, when Matthew Rose settled a London derby against West Ham at Loftus Road, the then left-back was composed infront of goal to hand the R`s a win that won a lot of bragging rights.

Mr. Taylor appears to be a referee who uses his common sense and has never really incurred the wrath of the Loftus Road faithful. He lets the game flow and books players only when necessary, mind you since that game against West Ham back in 2004, perceptions may be subject to change!

This season Mr. Taylor in 39 games, has handed out 102 yellow cards and 8 reds, most recently sending off duo Jonathan Worthington and Jonathan Douglas in truly baffling circumstances in a home 1-0 victory for Huddersfield against rivals Leeds at the Galpharm Stadium.

Games Taken Charge:
4th October 1997 - QPR 2-4 Charlton Athletic
25th February 1998 - QPR 2-2 Sheffield United
18th December 1999 - QPR 0-2 Charlton Athletic
20th February 2001 - Gillingham 0-1 QPR
2nd March 2002 - QPR 2-0 Blackpool
9th August 2003 - QPR 5-0 Blackpool
16th October 2004 - QPR 1-0 West Ham United
