Blue and white out for Sir John Madejski


MAIDENHEAD: The former Reading FC chairman Sir John Madejski visited Maidenhead Synagogue for its annual Jubilee Lecture last month.

The visit in Ray Park Road was arranged by Rabbi Jonathan Romain – who is a season ticket holder for the Championsh­ip club.

Madejski told the audience – many of whom turned out in the blue and white colours of Reading FC – of his rags-to-riches business story, as well as his entreprene­urial activities and charitable work, spanning sports, education, art and culture.

Rabbi Romain said that he stood out from many high-profile owners because ‘he was renowned for having the interest of the club and fans at heart, rather than seeing it as a financial investment’.
