IRISH YOUNGSTER SINCLAIR Armstrong has joined English Championship club Queens Park Rangers from Shamrock Rovers.

Armstrong is a Republic of Ireland U17 international who reportedly had a trial with Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim earlier this year.

At the age of 15, he made his first-team debut for Rovers in an FAI Cup clash with Drogheda United in August 2018. The 17-year-old featured for the club’s second-string side in the League of Ireland First Division this season.

Armstrong most recently featured for the Ireland U17s last November, when he scored in a 4-2 win over Israel in a European Championship qualifier.

The Clondalkin native will initially link up with his new club’s U18 side, who are coached by former QPR and Chelsea striker Paul Furlong.
