Hogan Phillip Ephraim (born 31 March 1988) is an English football player who is currently a free agent following his release by Queens Park Rangers. He is a graduate of the West Ham United Academy and a former England Under-19 international. His primary position is as a winger but he can also play as a forward.

Background[edit]

Ephraim was born on 31 March 1988[1] in Archway, London. He attended Highbury Grove School from the years of 1999–2004 and currently lives in Highbury, North London.

Club career[edit]

West Ham United[edit]

Ephraim joined West Ham as a trainee in July 2004 making one substitute appearance for the Hammers first team during the 2005–06 season in the League Cup win over Sheffield Wednesday in September 2005[2] and was an unused substitute in the club's 0–3 loss to Italian side Palermo in the 2nd leg of the Uefa Cup 1st round a year later.[3] He joined Championship side Colchester United on a one-month loan in November 2006, saying, "I've played youth football for three years now and I'm looking forward to getting stuck into the Championship. A few clubs were interested but with Colchester being a team on the up, this was my first choice."[4] He extended his loan spell for a further month in December and again in January 2007 until the end of the season.[5][6] He made 21 appearances for Colchester, scoring one goal.[7] In the 2007/08 season, he joined Queens Park Rangers on a three-month loan in August 2007.[8] QPR manager John Gregory described him as "...technically very gifted and has the versatility to play on the right or left of midfield."[8] He returned to West Ham in November 2007, having made 13 league appearances for QPR, scoring two goals.[7]

Queens Park Rangers[edit]

He joined Queens Park Rangers for an undisclosed fee on 2 January 2008, signing a three and a half year contract.[9] Ephraim said of the move, "It's a great time to be at QPR. Big things are going to happen here – the new owners are very ambitious."[9] Ephraim went on to become a regular during Queens Park Rangers' promotion campaign, scoring 3 goals during the 2010 to 2011 season. However, after QPR's promotion to the Premier League, an influx of player's saw Ephraim's first team chances limited and he soon fell down the pecking order.

After a string of loan spells, Ephraim was finally released by QPR on 1 July 2014.[10]

Leeds United loan[edit]

On 26 November 2009, Ephraim joined Football League One leaders Leeds United on loan until 1 January 2010.[11] QPR decided to not allow Ephraim to be eligible for Leeds' FA Cup games. On 1 December, Ephraim made his Leeds debut in a 2–0 away win against Oldham Athletic.[12] After being limited to substitute appearances against Huddersfield Town and Brentford, Ephraim returned to the starting line-up against Accrington Stanley, on 15 December, in the Football League Trophy and scored his first goal for Leeds as well as providing as assist for Neil Kilkenny's goal.[13] Ephraim's one month spell at Leeds saw him playing four games in all competitions scoring one goal. On 1 January 2010, he returned to QPR.[14]

Charlton Athletic loan[edit]

On 9 November 2011, Ephraim joined Football League One leaders Charlton Athletic on loan until 3 January 2012.[15]

Bristol City loan[edit]

Ephraim signed on loan for Bristol City on 22 March 2012 until the end of the 2011–12 season.[16] Ephraim scored on his debut on 25 March in a 1–1 away draw with Middlesbrough.[17]

Toronto FC loan[edit]

Ephraim signed with Toronto FC on loan on 27 February, 2013.[18] Ephraim made his debut for Toronto on 2 March in a 1-0 away defeat to Vancouver Whitecaps FC.[19] On June 4, 2013 Ephraim's loan was terminated by Toronto.[20]

Peterborough United loan[edit]

On 8 November 2013, Hogan joined Peterborough United on loan for a month.[21] His Peterborough debut came the next day in a 2-0 home win in the FA Cup against Exeter City.[22] Ephraim returned to QPR in February 2014. He had made 11 appearances for Peterborough United.[23]
