Squad Travel To Holland
13 July 2016
By Hob Nob Anyone?
Reading have taken a squad of 21 players on a brief pre-season visit of Holland, that will finish on Friday night with a friendly against Saudi Arabian top tier side Al-Taawoun.
The Royals will be training in Oosterbeek with most of the first team squad. New signing Anssi Jaakkola has flown out with his new team mates, but fellow goalkeeper Jonathan Bond misses the trip due to injury. Those involved in Euro 2016 will also miss out on Holland but are expected to return to pre-season training next week.
The squad includes a number of academy graduates as the Royals look to "build from within" for the new season. Meanwhile Reading won 2-1 with the remainder of their Under 21 side at Billericay Town last night. The Royals took the lead before the home side equalised, and the Royals needed a late goal to beat the Isthmian League side.
