Jordan Obita and Oliver Norwood recently took time out to visit a group of youngster taking part in the Introduction to Sport course that has been held at the Madejski Stadium Indoor Training Centre.

Organised by the Reading FC Community Trust, and in partnership with Reading College, the course give youngsters aged 16-18 the opportunity to earn qualifications in football and boxercise, and provides a pathway for participants to work in sport.

During the visit, the duo observed the youngsters taking part in a football match before the group came together to be presented their certificates from the Royals first teamers.

Following the presentation, the lads were posed questions on life as a professional footballer by the group, before signing autographs and posing for pictures.
