Spreading the Jem love!

4 October 2013

Show of unity hits national news

The Royals have made the national news after putting on an excellent show of unity for Jem Karacan on Thursday.

With Jem sadly unable to make the picture because of a knee operation on Wednesday, his presence was still felt as all 30-plus players held up cards with his face on them!

The Daily Mail were alert to the show of love, and produced a news story on their popular website including our Youtube video. You can read their story by clicking here. Another national newspaper, The Sun, will include the story in their Saturday edition and it will also feature in the League Paper on Sunday.

It was also picked up on the Reading Post and Reading Chronicle websites, as well as being included in the BBC's rolling news blog, Sportsday Live.

A numbers of the players also paid tribute to him on social media, and liked a photo of the afternoon that was posted on the club's official Instagram account. Furthermore, Jem himself took to Twitter to thank the players for their efforts.

Here's a selection of what our fans said on social media:
