Royals welcome fans from afar

15 February 2016

Supporters make journey to Mad Stad from across the globe

Last weekend the Royals welcomed some of our international fans to Madejski Stadium who had travelled a considerable distance to come a watch the Royals in action.

Craig and Lauren Hulse attended our clash with Burnley, making the journey to Royal Berkshire from their home in Las Vegas, after the club invited them as special guests for the fixture.  The couple are both big fans of United States international Danny Williams and were hoping to come and see him in action.

Unfortunately Danny missed the game through injury on the day, but we arranged for the pair to meet the Reading midfielder pitchside before kick-off, where he had a long chat with them about his career and his time with Reading!  Danny also signed Craig and Lauren’s programmes and posed for a few photos to give the couple something to remember from their trip across the Atlantic.

Meanwhile Royals fan, Tariq, made the trip to the game all the way from his native Saudi Arabia. The young Reading supporter is a huge fan of the club and spent the half time interval down by the pitch, experiencing the view of Madejski Stadium from the dugout. Tariq thoroughly enjoyed his day out watching the Royals and is keen to come back again soon!
