TJARONN Chery is able to look back on his first season with QPR and feel happy with the start he has made to his life as a Ranger.
The 27 year-old forward scored ten goals and made a total of 41 appearances for the club. A regular under former gaffer Chris Ramsey, Chery initially found himself out of the starting line-up following the managerial change in November.
But he soon worked his way into Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s plans and seems to have turned himself into a key member of the side for next season.
“At the start of the season I was playing in every game but the manager changed and I was out of the side,” Chery recalled to www.qpr.co.uk.
“Sometimes this is what can happen in football, and you don’t play. This is what happened but I always try to do my best to show everyone how I can play.”
Chery capped off his first campaign in English football by being named the Ray Jones Players’ Player of the Year and the Junior Hoops Player of the Year.
“Hopefully people can see I can score and make good passes,” Chery said. “This is maybe why the players voted me their Player of the Year.
“At the start of the season I scored four goals, and then after two or three months out I had a strong second half to the season. I am really pleased that in my first year with the club I have managed to score double figures. I am very happy with this.
“If your own team-mates give you an award, you can say you have had a good season. To do this in my first year is really pleasing and I feel I have done well.”
Chery was also pleased with his Junior Hoops accolade, adding: “To be voted by the young fans is really nice, and it is special for them to look up to me like this!”
