Competition winners see behind the scenes at Hogwood

22 December 2015

Fans watch training and meet the players

Our lucky competition winners visited Hogwood Park this week to watch the Royals train in the lead up to their post-Christmas Championship fixtures.

A group of lucky Season Ticket holders, who entered our special competition for an exclusive opportunity to watch Reading train, were in attendance in cold and blustery conditions at the training ground.

Despite heavy rain and wind everyone seemed in high spirits and impressed with manager Brian McDermott, as they watched on whilst he delivered one of his first training sessions since taking the reins at Reading for a time.    

As well as watch first-team training, the excited Royals fans were also treated to an 11-a-side training match between some of the first team and the Under-21s.

After training, the competition winners then met with the players and returning Royals boss McDermott to have a chat and get shirts, balls and calendars signed - including the special edition Royals Uncovered calendar which is on sale now in the RFC Megastore and online.

The players also posed for a number of photos and selfies with the fans to make sure it was an experience they would never forget!
