    Sinclair Armstrong (F b.2003 QPR)

    Great start for the eighteen-year-old, marking his debut in English senior football with his first senior goal in Torquay's 2-0 win over King's Lynn: https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/58936477

    Good news thank you. Interesting to see taylor Croasdale playing for Weymouth. He was at Chelsea and one of the leading scorers at under 18s level at tge same time glen mccauley was also scoring frequently for Liverpool youth teams. Just shows how things can change in a few years even when you have serious talent. Really hope mccauley can find a club in the league of ireland to get himself established

    Had a successful loan spell at Torquay judging by their forum comments, and the few goals/assists he got. Very promising. Qpr recalled him and hes on the bench for FA cup today. Whether their plan is to keep him or loan to L1/2 for rest of the season remains to be seen. He has all the raw ingredients to be a very good striker, pace, power and finishing. And an early successful introduction to senior football will stand to him

    Anyone with insight here? Doing okay in the conference, gets recalled (qpr or agent pressure), agent creates some bogus transfer rumors, and now he finds himself with no real pathway to senior football until next season. Unless some bizarre injury crisis at high flying QPR. What happened? There didnt even appear to be a league 2 loan attempt that fell through which was the original thought

    No real insight but I certainly wouldn't be too worried about the recall, especially considering he appeared on the bench for their third-round cup game - actually QPR's squad only has four strikers listed so maybe they thought it's worth their while having him has back-up after he made an immediate impression on loan. He won't turn 19 until summer and already has a couple of senior goals under his belt and while it would be great if he could get some time before the end of the season or an emergency loan, even if it doesn't happen he's still well on track.

    Well lets see what kind of first team football exposure he will get between now and the end of the season. Right now to me, it looks like a terrible decision. He was doing okay starting games in the conference at 18. Lets see what he does between now and May

    A baffling decision, seems like a waste of a second half of a season to me

    Actually looks like he joined Aldershot Town 2 weeks ago for the last few games of the season. No appearance yet, and only 5 games left.

    Remember the days when a teenage Irish striker coming on as a 77th-minute sub for a Championship team on the opening day of the season would cause great excitement? Now we're all like "meh, Costelloe played 73 minutes, Omochere set up a goal six minutes into his game": https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/62274838

    Good to see, I like the attributes on Sinclair. Just a shame he didnt get an additional 5 months of conference football last year, very poor decision was made either by his agent or QPR. Hopefully he will continue to get championship opportunities, looks like qpr are crying out for firepower
