Legend attends local awards thanks to club sponsor Legend Alliance
A group of youngsters from local side Hatch Warren Phoenix had a special visit past weekend, as Royals Ambassador Michael Gilkes and club mascot Kingsley were guests of honour at their end of season awards!
The kids, who have their training kit sponsored by Legend Alliance, have just completed their inaugural season in the Peter Houseman Youth League at Under 7 level, and were captivated as 'Gilkesy' spoke about his time as a Reading player and gave tips on how football can contribute to a healthy lifestyle.
The former Reading winger is currently our Academy's assistant manager - so was of course well placed to give advice to the budding young stars!
The players received their trophies of participation from Michael and then proudly posed for a picture with loveable lion Kingsley.
