QPR FC Women are excited to announce the signing of attacking midfielder Erin Pope.
The young midfielder joins Rangers from Stevenage FC Women as female football finally returns to West London.
Erin, who is a product of the QPR Girls youth System is delighted to be returning to W12, she told www.qpr.co.uk: “I just wanted to come back to QPR, it feels like home here.
“I am really excited and looking forward to being back on the pitch, I can’t wait to be putting on the shirt once again.
“I have known Steve since I was 8-years-old, and he has been a big part of my life.
“Football wise he is the reason I am the player I am today so I can’t wait to be working with him again.
“Obviously I am coming from Stevenage who are in the league above, so hopefully I can bring some of that experience to QPR, as we look to push towards that tier.”
She added: “I am quite a versatile player, but I enjoy playing in the attacking midfield role, however, I will play anywhere that the team needs me.”
Pope who becomes manager Steve Quashie’s second signing of the year, following the arrival of defender Mollie Dench from London Bee’s knows the quality that Erin will add to his R’s side.
The Rangers boss said: “Erin is a player that I have worked with for many years, she has progressed through the QPR Girls system and was our team captain for our Development side, before making the transition over to Stevenage.
“She will certainly add some quality into the attacking areas of the squad.
“Erin has bought into our vision; she is someone I have been keen on introducing back to the football club and I am delighted to see her return.”
Welcome back to QPR, Erin!
