Peter Ramage was born and bred in the same town that the Charlton brothers and Jackie Milburn made famous – Ashington, which is about 15 miles north of Newcastle.
Peter Ramage – has settled well in London
And it seems from the reports down south, that Peter seems quite happy with life at QPR, as he gets used to his new life in London.
Peter wanted first team football, as he did when he signed his last contract at the club, under Graeme Souness, back in 2005.
The club couldn’t guarantee him that next season, so against the wishes of Kevin Keegan, Ramage decided to move on and leave the only club he had ever played for.
However, he seemed to make a good choice, and moved to a club on the up, in QPR, and we would expect the club to be challenging for promotion from the Championship in the coming season.
Peter was interviewed today on BBC London and said:
“It has been enjoyable”
“The lads have helped us settle in, it has been a good start and the management have been terrific.”
Ramage made his Queens Park Rangers debut on Saturday, at Broadhall Way, against Stevenage Borough, and they won the game quite easily by 3-1.
However, Peter didn’t play at center-back, his preferred position, but apparently put in a solid 45 minutes at right back, where he actually made his Newcastle debut,Â before being withdrawn at half time.
Newcastle fans know Peter as a hard worker and a solid player, who hardly ever lets the side down, and he’s just a great professional.
As far as the game was concerned Peter said:
“I thought we did quite well,”
“We were a bit rusty and tired because we had a tough week in Bath but we tried to win the game because it is important to get that winning mentality.”
We’ll be following the QPR results this season, and checking in to see how Peter is doing down south, but it looks like he’s off to a solid start, and that’s good to hear.
