QPR Clinch Pre-Season Trophy

QPR Clinch Pre-Season Trophy

Queens Park Rangers have come away from the Italian tour with the Trofeo Bartolotti

In a unique tournament comprising of three 45 minute matches QPR came through with pre-season silverwear.

Jay Bothroyd was the solitary goalscorer against SC Braga of Portugal when he latched onto a pin-point Adel Taarabt cross.

Following a share of the spoils between Braga and Atalanta, QPR knew a draw would be enough for them to take the trophy.

Rangers got off to the best start in the final fixture against Atalanta when Alejandro FaurlĂ­n opened the scoring.

Simone Padoin equalised moments later as the fixture went to penalties. Trialist Brian Murphy saved a spot kick while Bothroyd, Taarabt and Bradley Orr struck in a 3-2 penalty victory.

Rangers now return home to face Football League new boys, Crawley and Blue Square Premier side Luton Town.
