East shortlisted for PL2 Player of the Month!

Young midfielder nominated for the second time...

5 October 2018

Young Royal, Ryan East has been shortlisted for September's Premier League 2 Player of the Month award!


Loader named as PL2 Player of the Month for August!

10 September 2018

Following on from Danny Loader winning the award for August across both Premier League 2 divisions, we have Royal representation on the shortlist once again in our Under-23s' midfield string-puller.

This is East's second nomination for this award, having also been on the shortlist in January for a sequence of fantastic performances at youth level.

The central midfielder, 20, was the only ever-present player in our U23s last season in the PL2, Premier League International Cup and Checkatrade Trophy - and he has followed that up with a consistent run of appearances this time around as well.

Each month, the shortlist is decided by the Premier League’s Football Development Panel after PL2 managers nominated the best performance by an opposing player in each of their league matches in September. 

This means that the young Royal has caught the eyes of not only those of a Reading persuasion - his performances haven't gone unnoticed by the club's opponents!
