18 May 2015

Great achievement for Community Trust's side

The Reading FC Community Trust’s deaf team were crowned South East FA Cup champions this weekend following a double victory in Hampshire.

Having overcome eight sides in two qualifying rounds to reach the semi-final stage, goals from Luke Byrant, Charles Hewes, Tom Collard and Harry Potter saw the Royals beat Carshalton 4-0 at Winklebury Stadium in the last four.

They then progressed to the final where they met Kent-based side Folkstone and a hat-trick from Collard saw them run out 3-0 victors, ensuring that they took the title having secured back-to-back clean sheets. 

The deaf team, which is run in partnership with local deaf charity Total Communications, only formed this season making their earning of silverware even more impressive.
