QPR achieve truly remarkable milestone during difficult season

QPR have had a difficult season on the pitch, but off it the club have been performing much better.

The work of the QPR in the Community Trust has received widespread praise, not least because of the club’s response to the Grenfell tragedy.

And Rangers duo Ryan Manning and Tomer Hemed attending an event near Loftus Road on Tuesday is said to be the 1000th appearance by QPR players at community events this season.

That’s a major achievement the club no doubt deserves praise for. Now they will be hoping their fortunes on the pitch will change under the incoming new manager.

Meanwhile, QPR could be set to sign youngsters Tyler Brown and Stephen Duke-McKenna from Crystal Palace and Bolton respectively.

Liverpool-born midfielder Duke-McKenna later featured for Rangers’ development side in a match against Sheffield Wednesday – who won 2-0 – along with Brown.

Defender Brown, 19, was at Barnet before joining Palace and could now be heading to West London.

Duke-McKenna, 18, has played international football for Guyana. He was at Everton before joining Bolton last year.
