Michael Edward Doughty (born 20 November 1992) is a professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Queens Park Rangers.

Club career[edit]

Queens Park Rangers[edit]

Doughty joined the youth set-up at QPR as a schoolboy at the age of 14.[2] He made his debut for QPR in the FA Cup defeat against Blackburn Rovers, after coming off the bench in the 88th minute.[3] In August 2011 he signed a six-month loan deal with Crawley Town.[4] On 5 March 2012, Doughty joined League Two side Aldershot Town on a one-month loan deal.[5]

Two weeks into the 2013–14 season, Doughty joined League One side Stevenage on loan until January 2014.[6][7] He made his debut a day after signing, on 17 August, playing the whole game in a 1–0 home defeat to Leyton Orient.[8] On 26 October 2013, Doughty scored a 90th-minute goal, his first goal in professional football, a left footed angled shot from the left flank into the far corner, during Stevenage's home match against Crawley Town.[9]

Doughty's Premier League debut for QPR came on 10 February 2015 at the age of 22, under caretaker managers Chris Ramsey & Kevin Bond, coming on as a 85th-minute substitute against Sunderland at Stadium of Light[10] in what was QPR's first away victory (in fact their first away points) of the season.

International career[edit]

He has been capped at under-19 level internationally for Wales, playing in a friendly against Liechtenstein.[11]

In August 2012 Doughty was selected in the Wales Under-21 squad for the 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship qualification match against Czech Republic on 10 September 2012.[12]
