QPR Appoint New Physiotherapist

QPR announce the replacement to Prav Mathema as QPR Physiotherapist (Mathema moving on to Chris Wright's WASPS).

The Club are delighted to announce the appointment of Paul Hunter as Head Physiotherapist.
The 35 year-old replaces Prav Mathema, who announced his decision to leave the R's after eight years service, to take up a similar post at Rugby Union giants London Wasps at the end of last season.
Hunter, who was the Assistant Physiotherapist at Premiership Club West Ham United last season, arrives with a comprehensive CV, which includes stints at Cardiff City, Charlton Athletic and Crystal Palace.
Hunter, who will work alongside R's Assistant Physiotherapist Shane Annun and Sports Performance Manager Joe Dunbar, is relishing the opportunity to link up with the R's backroom team, commenting: "I've been working my way around the country for the last 14 years or so, but this is my first job as Head Physio, so I'm really excited by the challenge ahead.
"I've been fortunate enough to work with some fantastic professionals during my career and I'm just grateful to John Gregory and Queens Park Rangers for giving me the opportunity to take it to the next level as Head Physio.
"Joe and I know each other from spells at Charlton and Cardiff, so the wheels are already in motion. It's very much a case of liaising with both Shane and Joe in a bid to get the players back to full fitness as soon as possible.''
Manager John Gregory added: "We're obviously delighted to have someone of Paul's experience and standing in the game joining us, in what is a hugely important position within the backroom team.
"He was the outstanding candidate of the 50 or so applicants we had for the position and he's also been somewhat of a lucky charm throughout his career. He has been part of three play-off winning sides and was also a member of the Crystal Palace backroom staff when they secured automatic promotion QPR
