Masterson joins on loan

Cambridge United is delighted to announce that Conor Masterson has signed on-loan from Queens Park Rangers…

The 22-year-old centre-back has made 16 Championship appearances for the R’s and joins United on a short-term deal.

Mark Bonner said, “We are pleased to add Conor to our squad and having played against us in pre-season and seen him in a brief loan with Swindon Town last season, we believe he will make the transition to our team quickly in view of recent injuries to Greg Taylor and Jubril Okedina.

“We have seen both Paul Digby and Jack Iredale perform well there in recent games but adding Conor gives us a more specialist central defender. He is excited by the challenge and by his potential to help us as we continue to find our feet at this level.

“We are grateful to QPR for their support in enabling this loan to happen in such a tight timeframe and look forward to helping Conor become a part of the team in due course.”

Masterson will wear the number 24 shirt and has signed until January 2022.
