Ealing GAzette/Paul Warburton Dagenham & Redbridge set to sign QPR strikerSep 28 2011

TROY Hewitt is set to go out on loan to struggling Dagenham & Redbridge for game time in League Two.

The QPR striker has made just one substitute appearance for his new side since his switch from non-league Harrow Borough in March.

Hotshot Hewitt was left out of Neil Warnock's 25-man squad submitted to the Premier League, with the 21-year-old being sent on loan to the Daggers to continue his development. Ealing GAzette

QPR Reserves beat a Brighton XI at the Club's training ground this afternoon in an eight-goal thriller.

The entertaining match also featured the return of attacker Jamie Mackie, who made a second-half appearance, after a nine-month spell on the sidelines.

Although, Mackie didn't find out he was set to feature until after first-team training this morning.

Saints loanee Jason Puncheon put the R's ahead on 20-minutes with a superb left-footed strike, after cutting inside from the right flank.

Although it wasn't long before the match was level, as Jamie Smith's acute chip beat Brain Murphy in the Rangers goal.

The lead was restored on 37-minutes, when Akos Buzsaky converted from the spot, after Puncheon was fouled inside the Brighton 18-yard box.

Moments later and a goal-line scramble allowed the visitors to once again bring the score level, as George Barker got the decisive and final touch.

Rangers added another to the scoreline on the stroke of half-time, as Buzsaky struck a ferocious shot from distance, leaving the Seagulls number one no chance.

The quick feet of Bruno Andrade gifted the home side their second penalty of the match, which the youngster converted, sending the goalkeeper the wrong way.

Jordan Woodley beat Murphy from close range as the visitors once again narrowed the score.

But Marcel Henry-Francis had the final say and headed the R's into a two goal cushion late into the second half.

Mackie came close to marking his return with a goal, but the R's number 12 just missed the target on two occasions, in-what was overall a momentous step for the 26 year-old.

QPR Reserves Squad: Brian Murphy, Michael Harriman, Gary Borrowdale, Bruno Perone, Mo Shariff, Taylor Parmenter, Marcel Henry-Francis, Akos Buzsaky, Petter Vaagan Moen, Hogan Ephraim, Bruno Andrade, Jason Puncheon, Patrick Agyemang, Jamie White, Danny Fitzpatrick, Jordan Gibbons, Jamie Mackie, Trialist x 2 QPR


R's gaffer Neil Warnock was delighted to see Jamie Mackie return to action today after nine months on the sidelines.

Mackie came on for the final 20 minutes of the Reserves' 5-3 win over Brighton at Harlington, much to everyone's surprise.

"I didn't want anyone knowing that he was going to play in the match today," Warnock revealed to www.qpr.co.uk after the final whistle.

"I decided yesterday that he would be involved, and told Nigel Cox (Head Physio) that I wanted him to have 20 minutes.

"I knew it would give him a big lift mentally to feature, but I didn't tell Jamie until after today's training session. He didn't need asking twice!"

Mackie only returned to full training last Friday following his double leg break against Blackburn in January, and Warnock joked: "It was just nice to get him out of the way of us, because he's been like a rash with the First Team since he's returned!

"He had two opportunities when he came on which he unfortunately put wide, but we are all absolutely delighted to see him in the hooped shirt again.

"I have never seen anyone work as hard as him to get fit.

"He can't wait to be involved with the First Team again, so let's help everything carries on the way it's going for him at the moment.

"He will continue to train with us now, and hopefully get 90 minutes for the Reserves next week, and then we'll look to get him involved."

MAIL - QPR confirm interest in making David Beckham Loftus Road's next big signing in November
Queens Park Rangers co-owner Amit Bhatia has confirmed the club’s intention of offering David Beckham a playing contract in November.

Beckham’s deal with MLS side LA Galaxy expires in November and QPR owners Tony Fernandes and Bhatia are eager to make him their next big name signing.

Bhatia previously denied the club were interested but now says: ‘Would we be prepared to offer him a chance to play for QPR? The answer to that question is yes, we would be willing to make him an offer.

‘It’s something Tony and I have discussed and we would throw our hat into the ring for someone like him.

‘It’s up to Beckham — or any other player of that calibre — to decide whether he wants to join QPR.

‘I’m not certain Beckham would want to join a newly promoted club.

‘If he wanted to come to London maybe he would choose Tottenham.’ Mail
