EX-WANDERERS youth product Stephen Duke-McKenna has signed for League Two Harrogate Town after his release at QPR.

The Guyana international, who was a part of David Lee’s Professional Development League title-winning team in 2017/18, has left Loftus Road after four years.

Duke-McKenna started in the Everton youth team but moved to Wanderers in 2018 and scored the first goal of the Under-23s’ 2-1 win against Nottingham Forest in the PDL final.

After financial issues at Bolton he moved on to QPR but featured just four times for the first team, spending much of his time out on loan with the likes of Hemel Hempstead, Torquay United, Leyton Orient – where he was part of another title-winning side - and Sutton United.

Now 23, and primarily playing as a midfielder, he hopes his move to Yorkshire can be a success.

“I am really excited to get this deal done and have my future secured for next season now,” he told the club.

"Things have moved pretty quickly, when I first heard of the interest I was keen to find out more and after speaking to the manager I knew this was where I wanted to be.

"The club has a plan for me and listening to that gives me confidence. I have watched a bit of how the team plays and I can't wait to get going to be honest."

Duke-McKenna is not the only former Wanderer who has been on the move this summer.

Callum Connolly, who had time on loan with Bolton in 2018/19, has signed on a free transfer from Blackpool to Stockport County.

Toto Nsiala, who played for Wanderers in 2019/20 on loan from Ipswich Town, has signed for Shrewsbury Town from Burton Albion.

And Calvin Ramsay has moved from Liverpool on loan to Wigan Athletic, having spent the end of last season with the Whites.
