Hayes & Yeading sign ex-QPR man

Hayes & Yeading United have signed former QPR striker Richard Pacquette.

The Kilburn-born 28-year-old scored 14 goals in 37 appearances for Eastbourne Borough last season – two of them coming in a 5-0 victory against United.

Pacquette progressed through the ranks at QPR and played for them in the 2003 Division Two play-off final against Cardiff at the Millennium Stadium.

But he failed to establish himself in the first team at Loftus Road and has since made one appearance for Brentford before having spells at a host of non-League clubs, including York – where he also scored against Hayes – and Hampton & Richmond.

During a two-year stint with Havant & Waterlooville, Pacquette scored against Liverpool at Anfield in an FA Cup tie. He has also played international football for Dominica.
