Last night, the Royals' first team wore warm-up T-shirts ahead of kick-off to help promote the work that Level Playing Field are doing and highlighting in its #WeeksofAction this year.
Our opponents, Blackburn Rovers, kindly wore the same warm-up shirts to help us promote the #WeeksOfAction in front of the Sky Sports cameras at Madejski Stadium.

Disability charity Level Playing Field are celebrating their 17th ‘Weeks of Action’ campaign this year, which aims to showcase the good work being done by clubs and organisations to improve accessibility and inclusion across all sports.
Disability remains one of the key pillars in our Community Trust's ethos and in the last year - which has been difficult for everyone - our charitable arm has done so much to keep supporters of all abilities engaged with football and the club.
Trust coaches have had weekly phone calls to our 'Friends of the Elderly' group, while our SEND traineeship programme has put together weekly quizzes and online learning sessions for supporters.

The Trust have supported BCA college with weekly football sessions for SEND key worker children throughout the pandemic and our 'Talking Tactics' group took the issue of mental health online with guest speakers from the club's past.
And the Trust has also continued its online gaming project with young people who have been given the opportunity to talk about football and their mental health with their mentors.
We'll publish a specific case study on the Trust's incredible work later this week as the Royals continue to promote the charity's fine aims and achievements during the Level Playing Field #WeeksOfAction this month...
