Marc Bircham has been appointed technical director of the Bahamas Football Association.
West Londoner Bircham, 41, will oversee the national men’s, women’s and youth teams in the Caribbean country and also the setting up of a centre of excellence.
Bircham made more than 150 appearances for QPR as a player and has since coached youngsters at the club and more recently worked as Ian Holloway’s assistant.
He left soon after Holloway was sacked boss as in 2018. Bircham was interviewed for the manager’s job at Loftus Road prior to Mark Warburton taking over last year.
