Joe Lumley Player Profile
Debut: No debut
Joe Lumley (no, not that one) is the young keeper that we turned to in October 2015 when another loanee, Jesse Joronen, ended up going away on international duty. You can call it a quirk of modern football if you like. At the time, the lad was working his way up the ranks at QPR and was called on to act as deputy for Chris Day when here.
Mind you, he’d seen action elsewhere before us. After launching his senior career on loan at fellow Herts side Bishop’s Stortford, he gained League experience on loan at Accrington and Morecambe too. He didn’t actually get the same benefit while with us, but we didn’t do too much wrong for him. Well, we hope. He has, though, gone on to make the number one spot at QPR his own and has become a regular at Loftus Road.
