Crawley Town have signed Frankie Sutherland on loan from QPR for one month.

The 22-year-old midfielder came through the QPR academy but is still waiting for his chance in the first team having made no appearances yet for them.

And now after he once again failed to break into the first team following the end of his loan at Dagenham and Redbridge, Sutherland has been allowed to leave Loftus Road again in his attempt to get on the pitch. He will be aiming to fight to try and push Crawley up the table and away from any possibility of relegation.

While Sutherland hasn’t made an appearance for QPR, he has had plenty of experience when loan out to several clubs. He has played for the likes of Portsmouth and Leyton Orient though his recent spell with Dagenham was his most extensive.

Following the move, Crawley manager Mark Yates told the club website: “Frankie has been with us for a couple of weeks and he played well in the friendly against Eastleigh on Tuesday.”

“He’s got a chance with us now over the next month or so, when we have six games, to show us what he is about. I’ve been impressed with him so far and he’s young and hungry to do well.”

“QPR have been brilliant about it and I’d like to thank Les Ferdinand, their director of football, for making it happen.”
