  • 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 www.qpr.co.uk: “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.
