The Chairman's letter to Fran

6 June 2014

Congratulations from Sir John Madejski

Sir John Madejski has sent a personal letter of congratulations to Reading FC Women striker Fran Kirby.

The forward became the first ever Royals player to be called up to the senior England women's side last week, ahead of crunch qualifiers with Belarus and Ukraine.

The Chairman took time out to write a letter of congratulations to Fran, who has received plenty of media attention following some outstanding form in the Women's Super League 2. Read his letter below. 

First team manager Nigel Adkins has also sent on his congratulations.


It has just come to my knowledge that you have been selected for the Women’s England Senior team.  This is a great accolade, congratulations and well done. 

Everyone at Reading football Club is extremely proud of your achievement and the prestige that this brings to the club.

I wish you every success in the future. 

Best wishes 

Sir John Madejski
