Come and chat to Royals legends Quinn and Gooding

The Reading FC Former Players’ Association are pleased to announce the next in their very successful and popular series of evenings with former Royals heroes.
Reading legend Jimmy Quinn makes a welcome return to Berkshire and will join fellow club legend, teammate and joint-team manager Mick Gooding when they appear at the Tilehurst Royal British Legion club, Downing Road, Reading RG31 5BB on Thursday, 15th October 2015.  Doors and bar opens at 6.30pm for a 7.30pm start.
Host and fellow teammate Ady Williams will once again lead a conversation with Jimmy and Mick in his customary open, relaxed and attentive manner before opening the floor to a question and answer session with the audience.
Jimmy and Mick will cover the success of the championship winning season of 1993/94 season, the aftermath of Mark McGhee’s departure and the club’s rise to second in Division One in 1995.  They will talk about the mixed emotions of that May day at Wembley, as well as speaking about their immense Football League experience.
