New mascot kicks off matchday fun
There's a new addition to the Reading team...
As if the build up to kick off against Stoke City wasn't excitement enough this past weekend, shortly before 3pm the fans were introduced to the newest member of our family - Queensley!
Kingsley has found lioness love over the summer - and his partner in roaring romance certainly shares his passion for entertaining loyal Royals.
The duo made their first public outing prior to our clash with the Potters, getting a warm reception from the home support - and are bound to be the talk of the town for the forthcoming season!
Indeed there was plenty of fun and games for everyone to enjoy this past weekend.
Youngsters headed to our new Fun Zone - putting their football skills to the test with target practice and recreating the moment that Jobi McAnuff lifted the Championship trophy!
The Master Blaster fired out fantastic prizes to the more alert members of the crowd, whilst cheerleaders and clap banners led to a rocking atmosphere inside the ground.
