At the beginning of the week Queens Park Rangers confirmed that we had signed young free agent defender Ali Omar.

The 18-year-old centre-back has penned a 12-month contract at the club as we cast a closer eye over him as he continues his development, and he has immediately joined up with Paul Hall’s Under 23 squad.

The player is yet to make his professional now in football but he attracted a fair amount of interest from other clubs owing to his performances for Stevenage’s Under 18 side in 2017/18 so hopefully he’ll hit the ground running with us and soon become another youngster we see making the transition from our youth teams into our first team.

He did feature for Queens Park Rangers during his trial spell over pre-season, making appearances in our warmup victories over Staines Town and Swindon Town as we made our final decisions on whether to offer him a deal or not.
