Good News - A New Contract for Joe Walsh...

Post by Steve Russell »

Good news, was superb at Coventry....
From the Club....

Joe Walsh has committed his future to QPR by signing a new contract.

The 22-year-old goalkeeper, who joined from Gillingham in January 2021, made his full
debut for the R’s in our final game of the season at Coventry. Now he is aiming to kick on,
admitting: “I am really looking forward to the future.

“Over the last three and a half years I have worked hard and I have improved as a goalkeeper.

“Now I just want to keep improving and keep showing people at the club what I can do.”

Walsh spent six weeks on loan at Accrington Stanley during the second half of the 2023/24 campaign, and
he said the period with the League Two side had a big impact on him.

“It was a great experience,” he explained. “It was hard because I was away from my family and my friends
over Christmas but it was an important learning curve.

“I am really grateful to Andy Dibble, the goalkeeper coach, and the manager at the time, John Coleman.
They gave me endless amounts of help.

“In the period I was there, I played nine games in the space of six weeks. It really kicked me on and when I
came back to QPR I felt like a different person and a different player.”

Reflecting on his involvement in our 2-1 win at the CBS Arena on the final day, Walsh said: “It was just brilliant.
I was so grateful and so happy.

“The QPR fans that day were incredible towards me. Even in the first half when I was down the other end, all
I could hear in the stadium was the QPR fans.

“It was just amazing, Honestly, it was probably the happiest day of my life.”

CEO Christian Nourry said: “After a promising spell on loan at Accrington Stanley, Joe impressed everybody at the
training ground with his dedication and steady increase in level.

“His efforts were deservedly rewarded by Martí and the coaching staff with a first taste of Championship football
on the final day at Coventry.

“I congratulate him on this next step and encourage him to continue to constantly demand more of himself.”

QPR is like the Hotel California - you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave. ;)
