From Mulgoa to Queens Park Rangers


Crowther is in the second year of his contract with the London side Queens Park Rangers who are currently playing in the English Championship.
A goalkeeper by trade, Crowther just turned 19 and stands at close to 6 ft 5 inches tall.
He has spent the last three years in England learning his trade firstly with Crystal Palace and now with Queens Park Rangers.
Crowther played all his junior football at Mulgoa who play in the Nepean Competition before moving onto Representative football with Marconi and Parramatta Eagles.
He was part of the Parramatta Eagles side from which James Holland now with Newcastle Jets and Adam Biddle now with Sydney FC also graduated from.
At 16, Crowther was given the opportunity to move to England to pursue a career in football. 
This he admits was the hardest thing he has ever had to do, leaving his family and friends.
The amount of sacrifices he had to make however are now starting to pay off.
He is the regular reserve team keeper for QPR and has been on the bench for the past four first team games and is hopeful a first team breakthrough will happen in the near future.
His desire has always been to play for Australia, however he is in the unique situation of also being eligible for the USA, England and the Republic of Ireland.
Crowther credits the influence of Australian goalkeeping legend Mark Bosnich (Currently goalkeeping coach at QPR) has had on his development.
“I have been working with “Bozza” for about 6 months now.
?Being able to work daily with someone of his experience is amazing and a massive example for me to follow.
?I grew up watching him play his trade in the Premier League with Aston Villa, Manchester United and Chelsea, so to be able to work with him is really a dream”. 
Crowther would appear to have the world at his feet, however he is focused on staying at QPR.
“With the recent new investment, this club is really on the way to bigger things. I want to be a part of this.”
