QPR have announced that Martin Rowlands has taken a newly-created role as vice-president of the Forever R’s Club.

The association for the club’s ex-players was formed last season, with former R’s and England left-back Ian Gillard installed as president.

Rowlands, who made 205 appearances during a nine-year spell at Loftus Road, will work with the likes of Gillard and club ambassador Andy Sinton.

“I’m delighted to be returning to the club in this role,” Rowlands told QPR’s website.

“I’m a regular at Loftus Road anyway, but to be able to give something back and help out with the Forever R’s is really special for me. Working alongside Andy and Ian will be a real honour.

“The work the club has done in the last few years in terms of re-integrating former players back into the club has been fantastic and with the set-up of the Forever R’s, there’s a real lasting legacy in place now for many years to come and it’s a privilege for me to play a small part.”
