Queens Park Rangers starlet Scott Donnelly has agreed his first professional contract.
The 18-year-old forward has agreed an 18-month deal with The R's after making his first team debut this season.
"I'm very happy to sign, it is the culmination of nine years' hard work and it has finally paid off," said Donnelly.
"I'd like to thank all the coaches, mainly Joe Gallen and Gary Waddock who gave me my scholarship and put me in the youth team at a young age. I'd also like to thank Gary for giving me my full debut.
"It's been hard work to get this far and it will be even harder to progress further.
"Earlier this week I was still doing my chores, now I can get in a bit later and watch my mates cleaning the boots!''
