Reading are in the Premiership!!!

Americans Bobby Convey and Marcus Hahnemann can look forward to road trips to such historic footballing grounds St. James' Park, Old Trafford, and Anfield next season. For the first time in their 135 year history, Reading FC 1871 has been promoted to the English topflight. Reading's remarkable season sees them promoted with fully 6 games remaining in the season. Having lost only 2 matches all season, the Royals have amassed a jaw dropping 92 points in just 40 games played. During the run, Bobby Convey has added 7 goals and sits atop the Actim Index as the statistically best player in the Coca-Cola Championship. Hahnemann, who himself is 6th in the Actim Index, has posted a club-record 21 clean sheets over the course of Reading's magical season. The good news for us here in the States is that we'll be able to watch Bobby and Marcus play more frequently on TV next year. The even better news is that with club business put to rest for the season, it is probable that Convey and Hahnemann will be available for the USA v. Jamaica game in Cary!
