Club statement

17 October 2015

Reading Football Club are deeply saddened to learn that one of our young supporters, Matthew, lost his battle against leukaemia yesterday morning.
 
We are aware and very proud that when we lose one of our own, especially at such a tender age, our fans come together as one, united in their shared grief.
 
When the time is right, the club will look to speak with his family about a suitable tribute. In the meantime, at today's match the thoughts of everyone at the club - the supporters, players, manager and staff, will of course be with his family and all the supporters who knew a very brave 14-year-old boy.
