CHRIS Willock has been named as QPR’s Supporters’ Player of the Year for the 2021/22 campaign, beating Jimmy Dunne to the top gong.
Willock’s seven goals and 11 assists put Rangers firmly in the promotion picture prior to his season-ending injury in March.
In all, the 24-year-old has picked up three separate awards in the end-of-season vote.
Willock has also been voted Ray Jones Players’ Player of the Year as well as Junior Hoops Player of the Year.
Meanwhile, fans determined that Norwich City loanee Sam McCallum was worthy of the Daphne Biggs Young Player of the Year award, while Andre Gray’s incredible last-minute winner at Derby County in November is the Kiyan Prince Goal of the Season.
Finally, Charlie Austin and Hayley Peacock have been named our PFA Community Champions of the Year.
This season, Charlie has been at the forefront of QPR's community engagement - being part of numerous club and Community Trust events and projects.
Charlie and his wife Bianca have been instrumental in fundraising for one of our young supporters, Dottie Rees, who is fighting cancer - and also organised an important event at Christmas for other unwell and underprivileged local children.
Hayley Peacock is the club captain of QPR FC Women and just over a year ago, suffered a ruptured ACL. Despite the setback to her playing career, she has been determined to stay actively engaged with the club - both on and off the field.
She has acted as the club's community player ambassador this season, working closely with QPR in the Community Trust to facilitate player representation at several events. Hayley is also an instrumental member of a new focus group looking at the female fan experience at QPR on matchdays, which is linked to the HerGameToo campaign.
Congratulations to all our winners.
