ROY­ALS ARE AIM­ING TO HIT HIGH NOTES

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS - By Tom Black­ett

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.

Up­beat

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.”
