News from the Club...

QPR Under-18s were beaten by two first-half goals at home to Charlton Athletic on Saturday.

Despite a fast start from the R’s, it was Charlton who had the first sight of goal – hitting the post from close range.

A couple minutes later, Tom Middlehurst – Rangers’ goalkeeper – was called into action and made a good save following a one-on-one.

Charlton took the lead in the 15th minute. A short corner was eventually crossed in low and hard and was put away from point-blank range.

With 20 minutes on the clock, QPR’s Lemar Griffiths had a shot from just outside the box which forced Charlton’s ‘keeper to get down low to his right to make the save.

The Addicks doubled their lead five minutes before half time. A 25-yard strike left Middlehurst with little chance, as the ball flew into the top corner.

After signing a contract extension last week, Sinclair Armstrong looked to get a goal back for the Super Hoops. He received the ball on the right-hand side, turned his defender left and right then fired a cross- shot just over the bar.

The R’s pushed to try to half the deficit. A cross came in from the right which was missed by the defender but took Griffiths by surprise, as he couldn’t adjust his feet in time to get a good enough contact on the ball.

Sadly, Rangers were unable to find a way back into the game, with the match finishing 2-0 to the visitors.

QPR: Middlehurst, Anthony (Hawkins 66), McClean, Aoroha (Murphy 65), Harrack, Woodman (Hamid 65), Paiva, Conte, Trialist, Armstrong, Griffiths.
