Owner jets in
Owner Anton Zingarevich flew out to Portugal on Saturday and saw the Royals' friendly game with CDR Quarteirense.
Anton jetted in time for the match in the Algarve, and will be out here for a few more days as the Royals train ahead of the new Barclays Premier League season.
He was very relaxed as always, chatting with the players, staff and having pictures with a number of supporters who have made the trip.
The Royals will have another new face on tour soon as well - Academy goalkeeper Stuart Moore is jetting out as Alex McCarthy is carrying a minor injury.
Director of Football Nick Hammond will also be out for the Sheff Wed game on Tuesday, while Chief Executive Nigel Howe is also in attendance for the first two matches.ANton
