Stefan Bailey joined Rangers after being spotted playing in the Middlesex County League for Willesden Constantine.|
The centre-midfielder made his professional debut at the age of 17, coming off the bench for Marc Rowlands at half-time away to Sheffield United in April 2005. His debut impressed the QPR faithful, as Stefan was quick to get stuck in and produced some fine passes.
He made his full debut seven days later at Loftus Road in a match against Leeds United. Towards the end of the 2005/06 season, Gary Waddock arrived as caretaker-manager and handed Bailey a following five appearances in the Championship. Despite only making a handful of appearances, Bailey was voted as Rangers’ Young Player of The Season.
In 2006/07, Stefan made a further 13 appearances in all competitions, however Bailey picked up his first red card in QPR’s 1-0 FA Cup loss to Luton Town.
Bailey made two more appearances for Rangers in the Championship and League Cup before being loaned out to Blue Square Premier outfit Oxford United, where he made four appearances in all competitions.
On 19th June 2008, Grays Ath announced that Bailey had signed a one-year contract until the end of the 2008/09 season.
