Never missed a beat!

19 May 2017

Our thanks to Phil and his team...

Reading Football Club would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Royals supporter and Eamonn Dolan Stand drummer Phil Johnson and his fellow drummers for their fantastic support over many seasons.

Phil and his team of drummers have officially hung up their drumsticks, not missing a beat as they hammered their way out style in the play-off semi-final win over Fulham on Tuesday night.

Phil and his team have been drumming up vocal support at the Madejski for 15 years now but they are hoping to pass the baton on to a new set of drummers ahead of the start of the 2017-18 season.

The Club would like to invite supporters who would like to take up the challenge next season to get in touch if they are interested in becoming the Royals drummer!

Perhaps you are part of a band or maybe you are just passionate about making some noise to spur the Royals on to results at Madejski Stadium in 2017-18.
