Chris Ramsey says he's optimistic about the future of the QPR academy, saying it's great to have a senior management team who know how to develop youth.
The Hoops are in the early stages of rebuilding the youth set-up, and have already seen a handful of success stories with Darnell Furlong and Ryan Manning breaking into the first team squad, while Josh Bowler was sold on to Everton for a substantial fee.
Speaking to GetWestLondon, Ramsey says that everything is in place for the youngsters to prosper.
He said: "We’ve got a manager now who will probably play the youngsters if they’re ready.
"Fortunately for us, Curtis (Fleming) and Marc (Bircham) have been in developmental roles before so they know the difficulties of getting players in and how to deal with them when they’re in and out of the team, and that’s going to help them a lot because they understand that when you bring a young player in, you have to nurture him to make sure he’s able to settle into that level of football.
"It’s an exciting time for the academy and linking in with the first team."
