Royals defender Jake Cooper visited his junior club Eversley & California FCLocal boy Jake Cooper attended the Trophy Day at his junior club Eversley & California FC yesterday.
He played for their junior team several moons ago and given his rise through the Reading FC ranks has now become something of a cult figure at the club.
He handed out the end of season awards to the club’s best players with the kids clearly in awe as they accepted their awards from the tall defender.
Their shyness disappeared as a football was brought out and Coops joined in for a kick about. A large group even piled into the goal in an effort to save one of his penalties!
