Evans surprises loyal Royal at school!

17 January 2017

George Evans surprised a ten year long season ticket holder infront of his class at school!

A teacher who has been working on systematically converting his entire class to become Reading fans was shocked when midfielder George Evans walked in to help with the process!

“It was a big surprise and completely unexpected,” said Mr Hughes a Year 3 and 4 teacher at St Nicholas CE Primary School in Hurst, who also happens to have been a Royals Season Ticket holder for ten years.

The surprise visit came about after a pupil wrote to the club talking about their teacher's love for Reading FC.

“Our teacher Mr Hughes is your BIGGEST fan! He talks about you non stop,” read the letter.

In fact given the run of good form for Reading this season, Mr Hughes apparently threatened to stop the children going on holiday in case it jinxed the run of good results for the Royals!

Reading midfielder Evans, who made the visit to surprise Mr Hughes, was delighted to be able to play a part in a day the teacher will never forget! “It was great to see his reaction when we walked in," admitted Evans. "He’s a big supporter of the club”.
