Royals take the mic!

20 July 2012

Gunter & co initiated

New signing Chris Gunter was among a group of Royals put through their paces in a traditional initiation ceremony on Thursday night.


If you think joining a new club is daunting, imagine the prospect of having to stand up in front of the entire squad and staff, give a speech then sing a song.


Chris did very well, giving a funny speech about his family before a decent rendition of Robbie Williams' Let Me Entertain You.


The initiation is great fun, and next up was young keeper Jonathan Henly, who also did a sterling job with another Williams number Angels.


After a little bit of heckling, Tristan Baker, a new addition to Karl Halabi's sports science team also got up and sang You've Lost That Loving Feeling.


But we're not done yet - Pavel Pogrebnyak, Danny Guthrie and Garath McCleary also have to sing this week, and a debate is raging about whether Nicky Shorey has to go up again!


In any event it's great for team spirit and a nice way to begin the training camp.
