Pugh signs for QPR
It’s 13 years since he left Burnley but Marc Pugh became part of Bournemouth’s climb to the Premier League and, having been released by the Dorset club at the end of last season, has today signed for Championship club Queens Park Rangers.
He was on the bench a few times for us but never made a first team debut and he went out on loan to Kidderminster, then in the Conference, to get his first taste of first team football. On his departure at the end of the 2005/06 season he played for Bury, Shrewsbury, Luton and Hereford before signing for Bournemouth in the summer of 2010 for a fee of around £100,000.
His first game for the Cherries was in League One but he played a big part in two promotions that saw them reach the Premier League in 2015. He played several times in the top flight, the last of them coming against Swansea in May 2018. Last season he didn’t feature at all for them in the league and he spent the second half of the season on loan at Hull before his release.
He’s now joined QPR on a one year deal with an option for a second year with QPR boss Mark Warburton saying about him: “Marc has quality, experience and he’ll add so much to the squad, both on and off the pitch.
“We’re thrilled to have him with us, and excited to see his contribution during the coming weeks and months. He’s played at the highest level and is a proven competitor. Also, the value of Marc will bring in a mentoring role is really significant.”Share this page :
