Michael Edward Doughty (born 20 November 1992) is a professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for League Two club, Swindon Town.
Doughty joined the youth set-up at QPR as a schoolboy at the age of 14. He made his debut for QPR in the FA Cup defeat against Blackburn Rovers, after coming off the bench in the 88th minute. In August 2011 he signed a six-month loan deal with Crawley Town. On 5 March 2012, Doughty joined League Two side Aldershot Town on a one-month loan deal.
Two weeks into the 2013–14 season, Doughty joined League One side Stevenage on loan until January 2014. He made his debut a day after signing, on 17 August, playing the whole game in a 1–0 home defeat to Leyton Orient. On 26 October 2013, Doughty scored a 90th-minute goal, his first goal in professional football, a left footed angled shot from the left flank into the far corner, during Stevenage's home match against Crawley Town.
Doughty's Premier League debut for QPR came on 10 February 2015 at the age of 22, under caretaker managers Chris Ramsey & Kevin Bond, coming on as a 85th-minute substitute against Sunderland at Stadium of Light in what was QPR's first away victory (in fact their first away points) of the season.
