IT probably won’t be the last trophy presented on the Loftus Road pitch this season – but this one means plenty to Brent Schools’ under-12 squad.

The Brent boys, who remained unbeaten throughout their Middlesex Cup campaign, were guests of QPR’s Community Trust at Saturday’s game against Crystal Palace.

The Trust work closely with a number of youth teams in the Brent area and invited the boys, together with their coaches, to watch Rangers’ first team in action from the Ellerslie Road stand.

At half-time, the Brent squad made their way around the pitch to the dugouts, where QPR defender Peter Ramage presented the trophy to captain Isaac Paiva of Queen’s Park Community School.

A photo-call and lap of the pitch followed, with generous applause from the Loftus Road crowd, and Brent head coach Chris Ampofo said: “Many thanks to QPR and their super fans.

“The club has a reputation as a family club, with strong links in the local community and this day will live in our players’ memories for the rest of their lives.

“Hopefully this will inspire the boys to understand that, if you focus and do your best, good things happen. We hope that more players will get involved next season.

“We have had tremedous support from too many places to mention, including parents and schools – it has been a real team effort. The boys have done the borough of Brent proud, on and off the pitch.”

Brent squad: Plummer, Ramsey, Seraphin-Whyte, K Edwards (Ark Academy), Eshun, K Edwards, Galvin (Capital City), Patel, Petri, Joshua (Claremont), Miguil, Osei-Bonsu (Copland), Green (JFS), Beach, Ibrahim (Kingsbury), Thompson-Davis (Northview) Preston, Rashid (Preston Manor), Robert-Keane, Amoah, German, Trivino, Manitou, Aubrey (St Gregory’s), Alves, Laignel, Paiva (QPCS), Pardoe, Simuchimba (Wembley).
