#matchdaymoment winner!

15 August 2013

Share your moment at the Watford game

Mark Darby became our first winner of our exciting #matchdaymoment competition for this photo (above) from our opening day win over Ipswich Town!

The Royals supporter from Winnersh was chosen as the winner for this photograph of his nephews Oliver and Oscar and his son Charlie getting caught up in the excitement of Danny Guthrie's 74th-minute winning goal against Ipswich Town.

Their prize for winning is a special tour of Madejski Stadium followed by a question-and-answer session with a first-team player.

On winning the competition, Mark said: "Wow! What a relief when what turned out to be the winning goal flashed in from Danny Guthrie. The real stars are the kids in the photo. They show exactly what the moment meant."

It was a family occasion for the Darbys as Mark's 70-year-old father was also there on Saturday - and Charlie, 13, Oliver, 10, and Oscar, 8, will be hoping for more victories in this 2013/14 Sky Bet Championship campaign.

Mark added: "I think the top three in the Championship will be closely-contested between Reading, QPR and Wigan Athletic. We're all very excited and very optimistic for the season."

You could be next to win!
