While social media provides a great chance for fans to interact with Reading players, there's still something to be said for getting a chance to ask a direct question face to face (and with no 140 character limit!). Fortunately, the Supporters' Trust At Reading (STAR) helps provide that opportunity, as they'll be having a few of the Reading first team squad along to their latest fans' forum on Monday November 28th where they'll be able to answer your quires directly.
Now they've also revealed who they'll hope to have for you to quiz, with Gareth McCleary, Paul McShane and John Swift all set to appear.
Here's the full details for anyone who fancies going along.
STAR will be holding another Fans' Forum on Monday 28th November 2016
The evening is free to all our members (on production of their current STAR membership card), but people can join up on the night. It's just £10 for adults and £5 for youths/seniors.
We'll be starting at 8pm in the Princess Suite at the Mad Stad, the first half of the evening will be given over to the hugely successful STAR sponsored Reading FC Deaf Team, who'll be bringing along a couple of their senior players to answer questions from the floor and giving a short presentation on their history so far.
The second half of the evening will be our usual Q&A format with some of our first team players, who will stick around afterwards for a short time for pictures etc.
If anyone wants to put a question in for the Deaf Team or our first team players in advance, they can do it via our Twitter account (@STARReading), our Facebook page (Supporters Trust At Reading) or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As someone that's been along to a few of these in the past, I can attest to how fun and informative they can be. It's a forum where what's said in the room stays in the room and the dedication and honesty of fans who've attended these in the past has ensured that that rule has been kept. That means that players attending have been able to be a bit more open than you'd usually get in a regular media interview.
