MOST OF THE QPR players will not have enjoyed today’s Premier League defeat to Tottenham but for Reece Grego-Cox, it will be a moment he remembers for the rest of his life.

The 18-year-old winger, who has been with the club since U13 level but signed professionally back in December, is a regular in their U21 team with five goals from ten starts this season.

After a series of injuries to established players, including Richard Dunne, he was called up to travel with the the first team to Sunderland last month and also made the trip to Dubai for their warm weather training camp.

Named in the match-day squad for the London derby against Spurs at Loftus Road this afternoon, caretaker manager Chris Ramsey brought the youngster on for his senior debut — replacing Karl Henry on 88 minutes.

Grego-Cox is capped three times at U19 level for Ireland and has already got two goals to his name.
