Chairman's Xmas message

25 December 2012

Sir John spreads festive cheer

Reading Chairman Sir John Madejski has sent a Christmas message out to Royals supporters in the Reading Chronicle newspaper.

“On behalf of everyone at Reading Football Club, I would like to wish all our supporters and everyone in the town a Merry Christmas and a happy new year. 

"2012 has again been a very memorable year for both Reading Football Club and the town. The two enjoy a symbiotic relationship and as one thrives, so does the other. 

"I will never forget the open top bus tour around the town with the Championship trophy, with so many thousands of people braving the rain to pay homage to our players and staff.

"History has been made this year by many highlights and of course, we welcomed Anton Zingarevich to Reading as we move back into Barclays Premier League.

"Naturally the town would have liked city status, but hopefully winning the League made up for it. 

"Away from football, I hope you and your family have a great year and you get everything you hope for in 2013. 

"Thank you for all your support and loyalty.”
