Queens Park Rangers Football Club, commonly abbreviated to QPR, is an English professional association football club based in White City, London. The club was formed in 1888 following a merger between two local teams, St Judes and Christchurch Rangers. The new club was named Queens Park Rangers F.C. as most of their players originated from the Queen's Park area of London. Following a disagreement with the London Football Association in 1898, the team turned professional in 1899 and joined the Southern League. They were one of the teams who moved from the Southern League to become the founding members of the Football League Third Division in 1920,[1] and were also a founder member of the Premier League in 1992.[2] Since playing their first competitive match as a professional club, more than 1,100 players have made a competitive first-team appearance for the club, of whom 163 players have made at least 100 appearances (including substitute appearances); those players are listed here.

The vast majority of the players who have played a hundred times or more for QPR are from England, with 33 players either coming from or played internationally for other countries. Sixteen of those foreign players come from one of the other Home Nations of the UK, six players come from elsewhere in Europe, two from South America, three from Africa, five from the Caribbean islands, and only Marc Bircham comes from North America. There are no players in the list from either Asia or Australasia.

Queens Park Rangers' record appearance-maker is Tony Ingham, who made 555 appearances in his QPR career between 1950 and 1963. Eight other players have made more than 400 appearances, the most recent being Alan McDonald, who has made the third-highest number of appearances with 483 matches. George Goddard is the club's top goalscorer with 186 goals in his seven years with the club. Other than Goddard, only Brian Bedford and Don Givens have scored more than 100 goals for the club.

Key[edit]

Appearances and goals are for first-team competitive matches only, including Premier League, Football League, FA Cup, League Cup, Football League Third Division South Cup, FA Charity/Community Shield, UEFA Cup, Southern League, Southern Professional Charity Cup, Western League, London Challenge Cup, Southern Floodlight Cup, Full Members Cup, Mercantile Credit Centenary Trophy and Football League Trophy matches. As the team's historian, Gordon Macey, lists the statistics from wartime matches such as the two London Combination leagues, the Wartime League and the Football League War Cup as well as the abandoned 1939–40 season; they are included even though they are normally considered unofficial.

Key
  • Name – The name of the player, sorted by last name.
  • Nationality – If a player played international football, the country he played for is shown. Otherwise, the player's nationality is given as their country of birth.
  • QPR career – The year of the player's first appearance for Queens Park Rangers to the year of his last appearance.
  • Starts – The number of games started.
  • Subs – The number of games played as a substitute. Substitutions were only introduced to the Football League in the 1960s.[1]
  • Total – The total number of games played, both as a starter and as a substitute.
  • Goals – The number of goals scored by the player in both games started and substitute appearances.
Positions are listed according to the tactical formations that were employed at the time. Thus the change in the names of defense and midfield reflects the tactical evolution that occurred from the 1960s onwards.
Statistics are correct as of the end of the 2011–12 season.
