Key Moments

Ladies get underway at Palace

Martino Chevannes’ side travel to Bromley FC for the clash against the Eagles this weekend, as the campaign gets underway for Chevannes’ side.

Rangers are likely to be underdogs for most of the season, but Chevannes is confident his side will once again give their all in a bid to compete against much bigger sides - both in terms of playing personnel and budgets - in the division.

“We know it’s going to be another tough season for us, but that is the challenge we face,” he told www.qpr.co.uk.

“We’re a young and inexperienced group, so we need to manage expectations over the coming seasons whilst providing the players with a platform to develop individually and as a collective.

“Our junior section, QPR Girls FC, and the community development work we’re doing in the local area will be of paramount importance moving forward, acting as our own recruitment conveyor belt.

“We’re a work-in-progress and player development will once again be key in everything we’re trying to achieve, in what is a very competitive, tough league.”

He added: “We’re going to be underdogs in almost all the fixtures we play - and the players are well-aware of that.

“However, we’ve shown over recent years that fighting spirit and commitment can go a long way.

“We get tremendous support from the club, both on and off the pitch, and we’ll be giving blood, sweat and tears to the cause week after week.”

The fixture at Bromley FC kicks-off at 2.00pm on Sunday.
