QPR FC Women are excited to announce the signing of holding midfielder Katie Ackerman.
The young midfielder joins Rangers from local side Denham United Ladies, as preparations for the new campaign start to intensify.
“It’s a fresh start, a new challenge and I can’t wait to get started,” she told www.qpr.co.uk.
“Me and my whole family are massive QPR supporters, so as a fan from the outside I can see the amazing work the club do on and off the pitch, but in terms of the Women’s team I can see where they are heading, what they want to achieve and I am delighted to be a part of that.
“I know that the gaffer will challenge me and make me play to the highest standard I can week in, week out and that is something that I relish because I always want to improve and I have no doubts that I will develop as a player here and really enhance my game.
“I am a defensive midfielder, but I do like to go forward and have the odd pop on goal, I am quite a vocal character on the pitch, that is one of my strengths and something that I hope will improve us this season.”
Ackerman who becomes manager Steve Quashie’s third signing of the summer, knows that the young midfielder will become a key asset, as his side aim for promotion this term.
“Katie played against us last season and you could tell she was a good player, she is a competent holding midfielder that is quite vocal on the pitch and that is something which will really improve us.
“She is good at screening in front of our defenders and effective at picking out teammates in order to exploit space.
“As she joins the squad we have no doubts that she will become a key member of our already strong side.”
Welcome to QPR, Katie!
