McCleary returns home

Garath makes Academy visit

Royals winger Garath McCleary recently paid a visit to a new Academy Development Centre in Oxford - to the delight of the youngsters!

Garath took time out watch youngsters train at the centre, based at Oxford City FC, and was certainly impressed by their footballing ability!

McCleary grew up in Oxford and played for both Oxford City and United - and naturally enjoyed seeing some familiar faces and catching up with various people.

He chatted to many of the people there, witnessed the aspiring footballers take part in various drills and practices before heading inside for a question and answer session.

The Royals star took questions from the youngsters before posing for pictures and signing shirts and autographs. The evening was enjoyed by everyone - especially those who were lucky enough to play Garath at table-football!

We'll have footage from the evening on Reading FC Player soon - follow our twitter page @ReadingFCPlayer to keep up-to-date with all our video news!
