Farnborough home for Reading Ladies

Reading Ladies home league games are to be played in North-East Hampshire as deal is struck on joint venture between Farnborough FC and Reading FC.

The Reading Ladies home league games will be played at Paddy Power Stadium, beginning with the FA Cup 4th Round tie against Blackburn on Sunday 16th March.

Announced on the Farnborough FC website, ticket prices were put at £4 for adults and £2 for concessions. Farnborough Manager Spencer Day is quoted as saying that "Reading have agreed to make major improvements and maintenance to our pitch as well as other financial considerations."

Matt delivered us a report on the Reading Ladies team before they kick off their league season in May.

Reading FC made a trip to Hampshire for a 1-0 pre-season friendly win in 2010. The ground, formerly known as Cherrywood Road, was renamed after bookmaker Paddy Power saved the club from administration by buying up sponsorship deals; with the players agreeing to change their name by deed-poll in the process.
