QPR OFFICIAL SITE - YOUNGSTERS BACK IN THE GROOVE- The R's young-guns were straight back into the groove on the first day of pre-season training at Harlington earlier today (Monday).
- Under the watchful eye of managerial duo Keith Ryan and Steve Gallen, the 23 youngsters were put through their paces in the sweltering mid-morning sunshine, undergoing a series of running and football drills.
- Ryan told www.qpr.co.uk: "It's great to be back.
- "The lads have come back in good condition and that's credit to them.
- "The first few weeks of pre-season will be tough, but it's arguably the most important time of the season for all the players.
- "A good, injury-free pre-season can really bear fruit later on in the campaign and for that reason alone, the lads understand the importance of it all."
- The Rangers First Team squad will follow in the footsteps of the R's teenagers on Wednesday morning, when Jim Magilton oversees his first training session since becoming the new QPR Manager.QPR
