Jem recently visited a Deaf Friendly football coaching session in Woodley. The group, who will soon make up the official Reading Football Club deaf team, are training in the build-up to their first match at MK Dons in April.
Our Academy graduate watched the players take part in passing drills on the night and was very impressed with the standard in the training session, run in conjunction with Total communications.
The Royals midfielder then took part in a question and answer session with the participants, many of whom were keen Royals fans and delighted to see Jem at their training session! Following the question and answer, the group played a match with Jem watching on in awe from the sidelines.
