2 of QPR’s most exciting youngsters: Is a first-team chance on the horizon? What do they offer?



QPR have long had a tradition of bringing players through their academy and into their first team. 

You only have to look at the likes of Eberechi Eze, Joe Lumley, Illias Chair and Ryan Manning who have come through the ranks recently and their conveyor belt of talent shows no sign of slowing down.

The Hoops are famed for identifying good young footballers and helping them grow and improve before they move on elsewhere or make an impact in the first team at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

Some have moved onto other clubs, but that won’t stop more coming through the West London side.

With that in mind, we’ve identified two youngsters on the fringes that could help QPR save some money in the future.

Stephen Duke-McKenna

The youngster made his first-team debut in April 2021 in a 2-1 away win against Middlesbrough.

He’s a player who has already been internationally recognised having played eight times for Guyana and has been described as ‘lively’ by some supporters.

He’s a player that constantly wants to be on the ball but at 21, you feel this season may be his last chance to impress at QPR, but he certainly has the ability to do so.

Faysal Bettache

Bettache is currently out on loan at Oldham Athletic and has been impressing for the Latics this season who have largely struggled in League Two so far.

The 21-year-old is a creative midfielder, direct in his approach and will look to excite supporters. He’s featured in seven games so far and will be pushing to impress those at QPR if he is to get a chance in the first team.

Indeed, with first-team appearances for QPR to his name already, a full season of first-team football could leave Bettache with the belief he is ready to make a push for more regular game time when he returns to London.
