Royals to head back to Holland for pre-season!

Next season starts here | Stam squad set for ten days in the Netherlands

5 June 2017

This season was a long one and our promotion challenge went to the final penalty in a Wembley shootout against Huddersfield. But with such a short time before the next campaign kicks off, our preparations for 2017-18 start here!

This season was a long one and our promotion challenge went to the final penalty in a Wembley shootout against Huddersfield. But with such a short time before the next campaign kicks off, our preparations for 2017-18 start here! 

The opening day of our Championship campaign is little more than two months away - the 2017-18 adventure officially kicks off on Saturday 5th August 2017. But pre-season begins in less than a month's time with the players due back at Hogwood Park on Monday 26th June. 

Some of our internationals who will be on duty with their countries over the summer will return a little later, but all will have minutes under their belt before the start of a ten-day stay in Holland as Jaap Stam takes his squad back to his homeland to ready themselves for what we hope will be another promotion challenge. 

A group of first team and Under-23 players will join the coaching staff in returning to the Netherlands on Wednesday 12th July before flying home on Saturday 22nd July - two weeks before the start of the brand new season. Details of the training camp and any fixtures that are scheduled out in Holland will be announced in due course. 

And we will reveal more details of our pre-season plans and news of any friendlies on home turf as they are confirmed and when all details have been finalised.
