Gallery: Eamonn’s stand officially opened on emotional day

8 August 2016

Images from the opening of the Eamonn Dolan Stand

Saturday was an emotional day at Madejski Stadium.

As the Eamonn Dolan Stand was officially opened, we remembered and celebrated the life of our universally-loved Academy Manager, who passed away this summer at the age of 48.

The plaque was unveiled by Eamonn's family outside the stand ahead of the game in front of hundreds of Royals supporters and our shareholders, and Chairman Sir John Madejski addressed the crowd with his own personal tribute to his close friend.

Inside the stadium we watched a tribute on the big screen and all corners of the ground- including the visiting Preston North End supporters, who were hugely gracious throughout - rose to offer a minute's applause.
