We are delighted to announce that Queens Park Rangers defender Joe Gubbins has signed for the club on loan!
The young defender started out his career with Premier League side Southampton, before moving onto QPR where he progressed through their youth system back in 2020, signing his first professional deal back in 2020.
Having made 25 appearances for their Under-18s in 2017/18, Gubbins signed a new three-year deal last season, as he joins The Shots in the search for more experience of first-team football.
The left-footed defender has previously had a temporary spell within the Vanarama National League system, spending a short time on loan with Vanarama National League South side Oxford City back in October 2020, playing 4 times.
After being a regular starter for their Under 23’s side for the last two seasons, Gubbins impressed enough to be given his first-team opportunity with QPR, making his senior debut in QPR’s 5-1 victory over Swansea City in the FA Cup in January 2020.
Gubbins later continued to impress within their youth system, as he made his Championship debut on the final day game of the 2019/20 season against West Bromwich Albion.
The 6’3″defender now comes in to fight for a place in our starting XI, as he will be involved in our away game today against King’s Lynn Town in the Vanarama National League, with tickets available HERE.
Welcome to Aldershot Town Joe!
