🔒 Lockdown lockscreens | More animated wallpapers for your phone!

Season-ending moments to bring your mobile to life

6 May 2020

Those special end-of-season moments live on for eternity – those few seconds which can define the future. We’ve enjoyed a few over the years at Reading FC!

And we have made a few of those moments available for you to download and use as your phone’s lockscreen through our Giphy channel.

Among the newly uploaded wallpapers are some unforgettable promotion moments, as well as those goals in either leg against Fulham on our run to the play-off final in 2017.

Promotion-sealing goals by Jamie Cureton and Mikele Leigertwood, Graeme Murty's celebration (and take-down of Kingsley), and cool finishes by Jordan Obita and Yann Kermorgant - all now available.
