Players come together for charity calendar – on sale now!

5 December 2015

‘Royals Uncovered’ will raise funds for charity nominated by Eamonn Dolan

Last month, the Royals first team came together to take part in a special photoshoot in aid of our official 2016 charity calendar.

The concept behind the calendar is to allow fans and players alike to show their support for Royals Academy Manager Eamonn Dolan, who has recently undergone a course of chemotherapy after having a tumour removed from his bladder.

All of the profit generated by the sale of the calendar will be donated to the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, an organisation nominated by Dolan following their incredible support during his treatment.

Amanda Heaton, Community & Corporate Fundraising Manager at The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, said: “I am delighted that Reading Football Club are supporting The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity through the sales of this calendar. 

“This is a lovely way to raise funds which will help The Royal Marsden to build a future beyond cancer.  Thank you to all those everyone involved in the production of this calendar and I hope that the sales go well.”

The ‘Royals Uncovered’ calendar itself features a host of first team stars stunningly-shot in a slightly different light to how you see them out on the pitch.

The calendar is now available to pre-order in the Megastore at Madejski Stadium and online at Reading FC Direct, with orders to be fulfilled in time to make it into all loyal Royals’ Christmas stockings.

The calendar is priced at just £10 and you can pre-order a copy NOW, simply visit our online store ( and we will send it direct to you in the post.  Or alternatively you will be choose to ‘click and collect’ your calendar from the day it goes on sale in store – Monday 14th December 2015.

You could even choose to pick a calendar up from the megastore at our next home match on Sunday 20th December, when the Royals host Blackburn Rovers. This is a limited edition calendar, so to be sure of getting your hands on a copy, be sure to pre-order while stocks last.

The club would like to thank all the first team players who happily gave up their time to pose for the calendar in support of our Academy Manager’s chosen charity.

And we would also like to take this opportunity to reserve special thanks to Bishops Printers, Rosey Pink Photography and Cream Design who through their time, hard work and generosity have helped to make this project a reality.  To find out more about the team who helped produce the Royals Uncovered 2016 Charity Calendar please visit:, and
