Lucky trio bring Royals vital win

Triplets meet Ms Dai at the match

25 January 2019

Reading FC were pleased to welcome Select Car Leasing Director James O’Malley to the recent Nottingham Forest fixture, along with wife Jenny and the newest members of their family, triplets Emily, Evelyn and Eleanor.

The trio proved lucky mascots, as the Royals ran out comfortable 2-0 winners and picked up a crucial win in the bid for survival. Three junior season tickets on the way?

The family were invited to meet Reading FC owner Ms Dai Xiu Li ahead of the game, and they  were presented with a 2018-19 shirt signed by the Royals squad.

In their fourth year as a key partner of Reading FC, Select Car Leasing have a vast array of vehicles available to suit a range of budgets, from hatchbacks through to prestige cars and vans.  Though the family themselves might be switching into an MPV now that they have three little additions to their household!

Headquartered just a stone’s throw from the Madejski Stadium, with a shopfront in the centre of Reading, Select are the UK’s leading independent car leasing specialists. With more than 15,000 cars delivered last year and a workforce that’s doubled in eighteen months, Select is firmly committed to the local area.

Company director James O’Malley said: “It’s been a rollercoaster few years, we’re seeing more and more people turn to car leasing as a cost-effective way of securing a new car. There are nearly 1.7m people driving a leased car on the road and we’re confident this will only continue to grow.

Reading FC has been a springboard in our journey to becoming a national brand over the past year. Our plan is to maintain this, with continued TV, Radio and digital advertising. We see Reading FC as a strong part of our business’s identity and our desire to keep close ties to the local area. It’s a club that’s very close to all our hearts.”

Select Car Leasing celebrated the recent renewal of their partnership, by offering Royals supporters a chance to win an unforgettable driving experience.

Hundreds of Reading fans entered for a chance to win, and it was supporter Michael Dugand who was selected at random to take part in a Mercedes-AMG 63 Half Day Experience at Mercedes Benz World in Weybridge.

That’s three hours of exhilarating, high-performance driving, with expert guidance from a driving specialist in a range of cars.  Enjoy the ride, Michael! And thanks to everyone who entered our exclusive competition.
