  • QPR sign striker Tyler Blackwood following trial
  • The 23 year old has signed a one-year deal
  • Blackwood scored six goals during trial spell

QPR have completed the signing of striker Tyler Blackwood.


The 23 year-old – who impressed during a trial period with the R’s last season – has agreed a one-year deal from 1st August 2015.

After putting pen to paper, Blackwood told “I am very happy to sign for QPR.

“I worked hard throughout the backend of last season, and the start of this, and the hard work has paid off.

“I’m a striker who likes to play on the shoulder of the last man, use my pace, and I’m a goalscorer.


ON TARGET: Blackwood impressed during trial spell last season

“My personal target this season is to get league appearances. I know I’m good enough, but I have to prove to the manager and the rest of the team that I deserve to be involved. That’s my aim.

“Under Chris Ramsey, you know that every day you train there is a chance you will be involved. It gives you that extra incentive, you don’t need any more motivation than that.”

Head Coach Ramsey added: “Tyler is a late developer. He went down the education route initially, and studied in America.

“He has trained with us for a few months and we believe he deserves this chance.”


Blackwood scored six goals in total during his first spell with Rangers, including a match-winning brace for the Under-21s at Crewe Alexandra and another double in a first team friendly with Norwich City. 


Born in London, the former Northampton Town trainee arrives from the United States following a three-year spell with the University of South Florida.
