Reading FC Deaf - FA People's Cup champions

Deaf side win tournament at St. George’s Park

3 May 2019

Reading Deaf FC were crowned the winners of the Adult Male Premiership competition in the FA People's Cup, defeating Sutton United 2-0 in the final at St. George's Park.

The Deaf side were dominant in the final, going ahead early on with a low driven finish from outside the box, before hitting the woodwork twice in quick succession as they kept Sutton penned in.

A well-worked second goal put the result beyond doubt, with the match being broadcast live on the BBC Sport website - and you are able to watch the final back on BBC iPlayer by clicking here.

This is the first national title for our Deaf side, who have had a superb season so far - with three cup finals still to be played before the season ends.

What's more, the team will also be present at the FA Cup Final at Wembley at the end of May, to be awarded with their trophy at half-time.

The team is run through the Reading FC Community Trust, and is sponsored by Supporters' Trust at Reading and Total Communications, who are proud supporters of Reading Deaf FC.

Congratulations to the team on their fantastic achievement.
