Steve Quashie has been appointed as QPR FC Women's new First Team manager.
It follows the club's restructure, whereby the Senior and newly formed Development side will operate under QPR in the Community Trust and provide a direct pathway from the successful QPR Girls setup.
Lifelong R's fan Quashie - who has been the driving force behind the Girls' development as Head Coach since 2005 - is looking forward to his and the R's next chapter.
"I'm delighted," he told www.qpr.co.uk. "I'm a lifelong QPR supporter so to manage a QPR first team is truly an honour."
The new look R's will compete in the fifth tier London & South East Regional Women's Football League.
Quashie has a clear vision for the future, saying: "First of all, we want the players to feel good about themselves. We encourage them to play an expansive brand of football, to express themselves on and off the ball and for them to further develop in a positive and professional environment.
"In terms of aspirations we want to secure first position in our league as quickly as we can. We want to progress through the tiers, become a stronger outfit in the years to come and play at the highest possible level.
"It's something we're all really looking forward to."
Quashie will be assisted by coach Jon Whittingham and goalkeeping coach Callum Stahlmann, who both join the club this summer.
Charlotte Edwards, Women & Girls Football Development Manager, believes the changes will breathe fresh life into female football at QPR.
"For a number of years we've had an eye on the pathway at QPR," she said.
"That's what's exciting now and exciting for our younger players; they're realising there is that opportunity to stay at the club now and progress all the way to the senior side."
Speaking about Quashie's appointment, Edwards added: "I've admired Steve's coaching from afar for a long time. He's very honest and open with his players and his dedication to female football over numerous years is there for all to see.
"He's well known within the game and the talent he can bring in, in terms of coaching and staffing around the medical team, will really help us and push us forward."
Rangers kick off their 2019-20 season at home to Eastbourne on Sunday 18th August.
