We were very happy to welcome Royals supporter Sam Coles to Hogwood Park training ground last week, where he met our stopper Vito Mannone and was gifted a pair of gloves and one of Vito’s match shirts!
Reading fan Sam, 20, suffered a stroke earlier this year – a tough time for him and his family. And so we were delighted to welcome Sam to our fixture against Derby County on the opening day of the campaign as our guest in Hospitality.
Unfortunately Vito wasn’t available after the fixture, so instead he invited Sam along to the training ground where he handed over a pair of his gloves and a match shirt!
All at Reading would like to wish Sam all the best as he continues on the road to full recovery!
