CHRIS Ramsey has been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List for Services to Football and Diversity in Sport.
Ramsey, QPR’s Head of Coaching, joined the club in 2014 as Academy Manager and went on to take charge of first team affairs before being appointed Technical Director in 2016. He was named Head of Coaching in 2018.
Prior to his time with the R’s, Ramsey spent two decades as a player before managing England U20s. He also enjoyed more than ten years working in Tottenham’s academy as well as being first team coach at White Hart Lane.
Ramsey told www.qpr.co.uk: “I am quite in shock if I’m being honest.
“I have been in football for 41 years and have managed to touch every part of the game – grassroots, youth, women’s football, disability football, as well as at all first team levels. That means a lot to me.
“The diversity part is something that is close to my heart. I think it’s very important that we realise there are still areas of diversity that need to be look at in the game.
“I thank all the clubs that I have worked for, especially QPR and also my time at Tottenham, which is where I was able to really cement my reputation.”
