QPR legend Paul Furlong has been handed the role of U18 professional development coach on a permanent basis.
He was appointed to the post in February when Steve Gallen took over as U21s coach - having joined the academy as assistant youth development coach in September 2012.
The striker, who scored over 50 goals from more than 160 appearances for Rangers between 2002-2007, will be assisted by ex-Jamaica international Paul Hall.
“It’s where I want to be,” said Furlong, who was assistant to Gallen before taking the reins three months ago.
“Steve brought me in and he was very instrumental in me being at the club. To learn a little bit off him as well was fantastic.
“I’m just pleased QPR have given me the opportunity.
“Every now and then when we have team meetings I talk to them about QPR, the shirt and the badge they’re playing for. It’s a very special club.”
Furlong, who guided the young Rs to the Professional Development League Two play-off semi-finals, added: “It's a great team spirit we’ve got within the group.
“They’ve all been a pleasure to work with and I’m really looking forward to next year.”
Meanwhile, Hall arrives as Furlong’s assistant boasting his own wealth of playing experience.
The former Portsmouth and Coventry City striker represented his country at France 1998, starting all three games in Jamaica’s only ever World Cup finals appearance.
