Home Grown Or Foreign Import?

The 25-man squad is not just about giving in 25 names of players you wish to draw from to build a team of 11 players on a Saturday (or Sunday, Monday, etc etc!)

At least eight players in that 25-man squad must be 'home grown' (as defined by the Premier League.)

'Home grown' means a player who, irrespective of his nationality or age, has been registered with any club affiliated to the FA (or the Welsh FA) for a period of three whole seasons, or 36 months, before his 21st birthday (or the end of the season during which he turns 21), although this does not have to be continuous.

It may surprise you just how many of our 25-man squad actually are 'home grown'

Here are QPR's 'home grown' players:

Bradley Orr

Clint Hill

Shaun Derry

Fitz Hall

Danny Gabbidon

Adel Taarabt (yes, he came to Spurs on loan but young enough to qualify!)

Kieron Dyer

DJ Campbell

Jay Bothroyd

Kamie Mackie

Armand Traore (guess we should thank Arsene for bringing him to Arsenal at such a tender young age)

Matt Connolly

Joey Barton

Luke Young

Tommy Smith

Shaun Wright-Phillips

Anton Ferdinand

Jason Puncheon

That leaves our 'foreigners':

Paddy Kenny

Alejandro Faurlin

Akos Buzsaky

Bruno Perone

Heidar Helguson

Radek Cerny

Brian Murphy

Well, I thought that was interesting!

Paddy Kenny from Halifax is considered foreign because he has played for ROI. A tad odd there. Fitz Hall is going to play for Barbados, what happens then?

I don't know - stupid rule anyway in some respects (eg Taarabt and Traore are "home grown" - go figure!)

Nothing to do with him playing fro ROI (Adel has played for Morocco and is still eligible) ... Paddy was only registered with the FA for 2 (of the 3 required) years before his 21st birthday.

How on Earth can you be considered foreign if you were born and raised in Halifax? I'm more foreign than Paddy K.
