Eamonn Dolan 5-a-side tournament


The Eamonn Dolan 5-a-side tournament is now available to book on The Reading FC Former Players' Association's website. The Association's annual charity tournament returns for another year to the 3G pitches at Woodford Park on Woodley carnival day, Saturday 8 June 2019. This season we are delighted to name our tournament in honour of Eamonn Dolan, Reading FC's former academy manager.

Our tournament is open to a maximum of 12 teams, and each team will have plenty of games, regardless of performance, as we will be running a consolation plate competition. To add to the excitement the tournament winners will have the opportunity to play a team of Former Reading FC Players at the end of the tournament in the carnival main arena.

Previous tournaments have seen Ibrahima Sonko, Kevin Watson, Brian Howard and Martin Williams play in our Former Player's 5-a-side team, so expect an entertaining game to wrap up the afternoon.

The Reading FC Former Players' Association would like to thank Huntswood for sponsoring our tournament for the fourth year running. We also thank Woodford Park Leisure Centre, for the use of their 3G pitches, and Woodley Community Carnival for involving us in their event.

Entry into the tournament is priced at £80 and is available via advanced on-line entry only. Please register now to secure your team's place.

The Reading FC Former Players' Association aims to reunite colleagues, former players and managers of Reading Football Club. We provide a voice and help to our members, including, but not limited to, social and welfare support. The Association continues to run as a non-profit organisation with any surplus donated to local charities connected to the Association or Reading Football Club.
