FACT FILE: Everything You Need To Know About Michael Doughty

Get To Know Our Latest Recruit

24 July 2018

Michael Doughty completed a sensational return to Wiltshire on Monday after putting pen to paper on a two-year deal.

The attacking midfielder is already a firm fans' favourite with the Town faithful but we've put together a handy guide of information just in case you need to know more about our new signing!

- Michael Edward Doughty was born in Westminster on November 20th 1992 (25-years-old).

 - Michael is the son of the late and former Nottingham Forest Owner, Nigel Doughty.

 - He stands at 6ft 1in.

- The midfielder joined local club QPR at the age of 14 when he was a schoolboy.

 - He progressed through the ranks at Loftus Road and made his first-team debut in The FA Cup against Blackburn Rovers.

- Doughty was then handed his Premier League debut for the R's in February 2015 - a victory away at Sunderland. 

 - The 25-year-old spent a large chunk of his time at QPR out on loan, taking in spells at the likes of Woking, Crawley Town, Aldershot Town, St Johnstone, Stevenage and Gillingham.

 - January 2016 saw Doughty first head out on loan to Swindon and he instantly became a key cog in the side, producing a number of impressive displays in addition to scoring a last-minute equaliser against Millwall.

 - He finished his first spell with the club with a total of five goals in twenty-outings, and was soon sent back to Wiltshire at the start of the 2016/17 campaign.

- After being involved in every goal Town scored in the early stages of that season, Doughty's campaign was curtailed by illness but he still notched three goals in seventeen games before being recalled by QPR.

 - Doughty sealed a move to Peterborough United in the summer of 2017 and featured 34 times, before being allowed to leave at the end of last season.

 - Doughts is now back for his third spell with Town and he'll be hoping to fire the team to success in 2018/19.

- The midfielder has also had a taste of international football having represented Wales at U19 and U21 levels.
