Team news: Jaap’s first Madejski Stadium XI…

29 July 2016

Three home debutants for the Royals

John Swift, Joey van den Berg and Roy Beerens all start for Reading against AFC Bournemouth in our final pre-season friendly – their first outing as Royals at Madejski Stadium.

Beerens, the most recent arrival of those three, is in a Reading squad for the very first time.

Meanwhile Anssi Jaakkola and Danzell Gravenberch, both of whom joined this summer, are available from the bench – although the game comes too soon for today’s signing Yakou Meite.

Reading: Al-Habsi, Gunter, Obita, McShane, Van den Berg, Norwood, Evans, Williams, Swift, Beerens, Rakels.
Subs: Jaakkola, Cooper, Jules, Tanner, Gravenberch, Watson, Stacey, Kelly, Fosu.

AFC Bournemouth: Boruc, MacDonald, Francis, Ake, Daniels, Gosling, Cook, Gradel, Pugh, King, Wilson.
Subs: Holmes, Mousset, Buckley, Harfield, Whitfield, Lee, Ndjoli, Jordan.
