Not only do you get to play football all day, you run the chance of some of your favourite Reading FC players popping in to say hello.

And that was certainly the case this afternoon when the masses of Community Trust soccer school participants were treated to a visit from young defender Omar Richards.

Recently featuring in the 3-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday, and celebrating his 22nd birthday - Omar still had time to pay the players a little visit, and get involved in the fun!

Omar spent the afternoon answering questions, checking out the skills and tricks, and even having a one-on-one with one lucky participant!

The Community Trust run these events and so much more over half-terms and holidays, running alongside schools and colleges. Check out what they have to offer at
