Breaking News

One Of R Own: Sinclair Armstrong

QPR academy reporter Len Harvey has been taking a closer look at Rangers' current crop of rising stars.

This week, Sinclair Armstrong comes under the spotlight...

Age: 18

Position: Striker

From: Dublin, Ireland

Signed for QPR: Aged 17

Pre-match meal: I eat anything before a game!

What’s your journey so far?

I came to QPR on trial as I was looking to play in England, because that’s been my dream since I was a little kid and after a few days, they signed me. Before that, I played for Cherry Orchard and Shamrock Rovers. I haven’t always been a centre-forward, I used to play right wing.

Highlight of your career so far?

Probably my first international goal which was at Under-17 level. My international debut was against Northern Ireland at U16 level but my first goal was against Russia at U17.

Favourite player/inspiration?

My favourite player right now is Kylian Mbappe. Because Mbappe is just Mbappe! He’s fast, skilful, he gets goals and assists - I think he has it all and for me he’s the best in the world.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

Playing in a first team at hopefully a decent level.

What have you learned from your loan spells so far?

I think I learned a lot about myself because I was living in a house with a few lads, everyone was cooking, washing and cleaning for themselves and that’s something I never knew how to do! So, I think I learned a lot more about myself off the pitch than on it.

What stadium in the world would you most like to play in?

I’d like to play at Anfield because the atmosphere just looks absolutely incredible and the crowd don’t stop, they go on for the full 90 minutes.

What are your strengths as a player and what do you need to work on?

I’d say my main strength is my ability to run in behind. But I’d say I need to work on staying alert and being on my toes at all times. Also, my first touch! But it’s getting better, step by step.
