Reece Cole says the step up to regular senior football will be ideal for him after swapping QPR for cinch Championship club Dunfermline.

The attacking midfielder – formerly of Partick Thistle – has signed for Dunfermline on a one-year deal. He left QPR earlier this summer after failing to break into the senior side at Loftus Road, playing U23s football for the English Championship team. Cole says Dunfermline is a great chance for him.

Aged 23, Cole explained: “When I spoke to the gaffer and heard the way he wanted to play it fitted in perfectly with how I want to play. So, it was a no-brainer to come back up here. I enjoyed Scotland when I was up here the last time, so it was literally about just trying to get it done as quickly as possible.

“QPR was good. It was good to be in training every day but 23s football is nothing like mens football. The games are, not meaningless, but there’s no real desire to get the win. If it’s a 0-0 towards the last 10 minutes it’s pretty safe football.

“I don’t like playing that way, I like all or nothing, really. So, it was literally just trying to pick a team that suited me and when the gaffer called me it was the perfect match.”
