Evening With Noel Hunt and Ibrahima Sonko
The Reading FC Former Players' Association are delighted to confirm an evening with former players Noel Hunt and Ibrahima Sonko. Tickets are now on sale for the evening which is at the Tilehurst British Legion Club on Thursday 26 September 2019, and will be hosted by former Reading and Wales central defender Ady Williams.
Noel Hunt joined Reading in the summer of 2008, scoring on his debut in a 2-1 victory over Dagenham and Redbridge, and went on to make 145 appearances scoring 33 goals during a five year spell with the club. Noel played a big part in Brian McDermott's team that secured the Championship title in the 2011/2012 season and went on to play 24 times in the Premier League for the Royals before we dropped back down to the Championship.
Noel Hunt and Ibrahima Sonko briefly played in the same Reading side together at the start of the 2008/2009 season before Ibrahima departed to join Stoke City after four years with the Royals. Ibrahima will be well remembered by Reading fans for his solid performances in the centre of the Reading defence during the most successful time in the club's history. In his first season at the club he played 42 times and the following season played every game as Reading won the Championship with a record breaking 106 points. Ibrahima played 127 times for the Royals.
The Association are delighted that former central defender Ady Williams will again host our event. After a two long spells with the Royals as a player, Ady now hosts coverage of Reading FC on BBC Radio Berkshire.
