Four very lucky Young Royals dreams came true earlier this month as they lined up alongside the first team for the Reading FC 2012/13 team photo!
The youngsters entered a special competition, just for 2012/13 season ticket holders aged 16 and under, for the chance to meet their heroes at the annual photo call
They visited the Madejski Stadium and stepped on to the hallowed turf alongside their heroes after collecting loads of autographs and photos with the players and manager Brian McDermott!
One Young Royal, Matthew Kirk - a huge Mikele Leigertwood fan - was overwhelmed to meet the midfield powerhouse and soon after the photo call Matthew’s mum, Joanne Kirk, kindly sent copies of some of her snaps, and said:
“Matthew had a great time and the whole thing is something he will always remember. I came away with over 100 photos - that's a lot of photos for 'show and tell' at school! Please pass on a massive thanks to the team as well. Matthew was very overwhelmed meeting all the players.”
