Ex-QPRs Signing for New Clubs: Santos and Cochrane

Chesterfield have signed experienced defender Georges Santos on a non-contract basis for one month.
The 37-year-old Frenchman started his career in England with Tranmere and took in spells at WBA, Sheffield United, Grimsby, Ipswich, QPR and Brighton.
Chesterfield manager Lee Richardson said: "This arrangement is of mutual benefit as Georges was looking for a footballing opportunity and we need some more defensive cover, especially in the short-term whilst Aaron Downes is on international duty with Australia under-23s.

YEOVIL OFFICIAL SITE Glovers Announce Cochrane Signing
Yeovil Town have this afternoon announced that Midfielder Justin Cochrane has signed a short term contact with the club.
Cochrane arrived at Huish Park in pre-season and impressed on his debut in the 2-2 draw with Bristol City at Ashton Gate.
Justin Cochrane started his career with Championship club Queens Park Rangers, where he progressed through their youth system and into the reserves, but unfortunately not the first team.
He was later sold to non-league Hayes, and then in July 2003 he signed for Crewe Alexandra on a free transfer.
In February 2006, Cochrane was loaned out to Gillingham to gain first-team experience, and in April 2006 had a trial with Luton Town where he scored a goal for the reserves.
He was released by Crewe at the end of the 2005-06 season, where he then signed for Rotherham United.
Having been released upon the Millers' relegation to League Two last season, Cochrane arrived at Huish Park July, and has been ever present either in the starting line up or bench since then.
He has made an impressive start to his Yeovil Town league career, scoring two goals in his first two full appearances.
Russell Slade has been impressed with the 24 year old, and has now made his tenure at the club more permanent.
"Justin has worked hard since his arrival at the club, and has done well," Russell said.
"He has really earned his contact, and I am delighted that he has decided to join us.
"He has a very good work rate and plenty of ability.
"I have been pleased with his performances since coming into the side, and his goalscoring has so far proved invaluable...". Yeovil
