Harrow Borough manager David Howell is convinced Troy Hewitt will prove his worth after joining Queens Park Rangers.

The 21-year-old striker completed a move to Loftus Road, on a two-and-a-half year deal, and Howell believes his temperament will ensure he is a success.

Howell said: “It is a good deal for the club. He has done really well, listened to advice and worked hard.

“But the biggest attribute he has is that nothing fazes him. His temperament is very good which allows him to focus and not get flustered.

“This is just the start for Troy and I’m sure that he will deliver. I think he has a very good future in football. He will be able to play at whatever level he is given a chance and will push on from here.”

Hewitt’s departure follows the recent moves into professional football for former attackers Robin Shroot and Albert Adomah. Howell believes the club provides an ideal opportunity for youngsters to earn their dream job in the sport.

He said: “It is all about giving players the opportunity and I just feel it is a credit to the club that we are in a position to help give people a career in football.

“It is a learning curve but the important thing is these players have the right attitude and they will get their chance.”
