Ecstatic Royals fans partied all over town last night as Reading Football Club won promotion back to the Premier League.
The supporters played a huge part in a packed Madejski Stadium as they roared the team to a 1-0 victory over Nottingham Forest thanks to an 81st-minute goal from Mikele Leigertwood.
There was an elated pitch invasion at the end and incredible scenes of jubilation, just as there had been at Southampton on Friday night when the Royals fans pictured above celebrated a crucial 3-1 win that took Reading to the top of the table.
Royals chairman Sir John Madejski said: “What a fantastic evening. What a celebration. Absolutely unbelievable.”
