Southall, Middlesex born left back Joseph Wingrove joined Uxbridge in 1911 and from there joined Southern League club Queen’s Park Rangers, although he lost a considerable proportion of his career to the First World War, when he saw service in the Armed Forces.

After the War he continued playing for Rangers and notably played in QPR’s first ever Football League match, against Watford in August 1920, playing 26 times in Rangers’ inaugural League season, most notably being part of their FA Cup giant killing team which beat First Division Arsenal 2-0 in the First Round.

Wingrove joined Maidstone United in August 1921, but after fainting at the end of a match on 12th December, he was advised not to continue playing. In early March 1922, he returned home to Southall. Then, after receiving medical advice, he was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital, but suffering from heart trouble, he sadly passed away on 16th March. Aged just 28, his death was four years to the day of his marriage. His funeral took place at Cranford Parish Church a few days later, when eleven members from QPR and seven Maidstone United players attended. On 4th May 1922, Rangers played Maidstone at Loftus Road in a Benefit match for his widow.
