ROYALS ARE AIMING TO HIT HIGH NOTES
COMBINING football and music is always a risky proposition, but Reading co-owner Lady Sasima Srivikorn hopes to have scored a winner.
She’s co-written a new club song that was played for the first time before last Sunday’s opening home game of the season against Leeds United. It didn’t insprire the Royals to victory – the match finished 0-0 – but generated plenty of attention.
While initial reviews for ‘They call us the Royals’ have been mixed, the co-owner, who describes it as British rock, remains upbeat.
She said: “I can’t claim I wrote the whole song. A group of people wrote it together with a concept I gave them. It’s not a love song, it’s not an ordinary song, it’s a song that will describe our thinking.
“At the beginning the odds were against us and everything was chaotic, but we are managing it well to reach our ambitions eventually.
“It’s a statement we want to give to the listeners as well as players and fans that we haven’t had a great time to start off with, but we will make it.”
