QPR

QPR social round-up: New arrivals settle in at Loftus Road…

Published

on

QPR were disappointing last season, finishing 11 points above the drop zone in 19th, but will be optimistic heading into their first season with Mark Warburton at the helm.

The 56-year-old has been busy in the transfer market bringing in four players on permanent deals and two on loan.

The R’s will be without a number of key players from last season, having seen eight players depart, including Jordan Cousins, Luke Freeman, and Matt Smith.

It will likely be difficult for Warburton in his debut season having lost key players like Freeman and Cousins but the new boss will be hoping the additions he has made can show their quality.

The R’s face Stoke City in their Championship opener in just 22 days’ time and kick off their pre-season schedule with a game against Austria Vienna tonight.

With preparations underway, here are some of the players’ latest Instagram updates…

Liam Kelly

Kelly was one of the permanent additions made in the transfer window, having joined from Livingston in the summer.

With Matt Ingram having left Loftus Road, the 23-year-old will have to fight off Joe Lumley for the number one shirt.

The Scotsman has signed a four-year deal with his new club and posted on Instagram to note his excitement at the “next chapter of his career”.

Dominic Ball

Another player who will be keen to force himself into Warburton’s first-team plans after arriving in the summer is Ball.

The centre-back joined on a free transfer from Rotherham United, who were relegated last season, and will be eyeing a place in the London side’s defence.

He will have some competition, however, with fellow central defender Yoann Barbet having joined from Brentford.

The 23-year-old appears ready to put the work in and posted on Instagram to say he was “buzzing” to sign for QPR and that the “hard work starts now”.

Luke Amos

Joining on a one-year loan from Tottenham Hotspur, Amos will be looking to get some regular senior football after returning from a serious injury.

The 22-year-old ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee playing in a Premier League 2 game in September 2018 but has made a full recovery and will be raring to go at Loftus Road.

The midfielder has never played above League One level and will surely be determined to prove he has what it takes before returning to Spurs.

Amos took to Instagram to thank fans for the messages of support and express how excited he was to be joining the R’s.
