Queens Park RangersEdit

Born in Islington, London,[1] Comley joined Queens Park Rangers Academy at the age of nine, where he progressed through the age groups to eventually make his first-team debut in 2015.[2] He made his club and Premier League debut on 24 May 2015 as an 80th-minute substitute for Karl Henry during QPR's 5–1 defeat at Leicester City on the final day of the season.[3]

After facing Carlisle United in the League Cup first round on 25 August 2015,[4] Comley made a loan move to the League Two club on 21 January 2016 in an initial month-long deal.[5] He made his United debut ten days later, starting in their 3–0 home defeat by Everton in the fourth round of the FA Cup.[6] In just his third appearance for the club, Comley was sent off for a second bookable offence during Carlisle's 1–0 league defeat to Newport County on 13 February.[7] His loan was extended until the end of the season in March 2016.[8] He went on to make 13 appearances for the Cumbrians.[9]

On 31 August 2016, Comley signed for League Two side Grimsby Town on loan until January 2017.[10] He made his debut on 3 September during Grimsby's 2–2 draw at Notts County.[11] He made 22 appearances for Grimsby in all competitions before he returned to QPR in January. He made one appearance for his parent club,[12] before rejoining Grimsby on loan until the end of the season.[13] He made a further 13 league appearances for the club.[12]

On 31 August 2017, Comley joined League Two club Colchester United on loan until January 2018.[14] He made his Colchester debut on 9 September in their 3–1 win against Crawley Town.[15] At the completion of his loan, he had made 23 first-team appearances for the U's.[16]

Colchester UnitedEdit

Colchester United signed their former loanee Comley on a permanent basis on 17 January 2018 for an undisclosed fee.[17] He joined on a two-and-a-half year contract.[18] He made his second debut for the club on 27 January 2018 as a substitute for Courtney Senior in Colchester's 2–2 draw at Port Vale.[19] He scored his first professional goal on 10 March in a 1–1 draw at Mansfield Town.[20]

In March 2015, Comley was called up by the Montserrat national team to represent them in two 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying first round fixtures against Curaçao.[21] He did not appear in either fixture.[22][23]
