Eden Downes has committed to Reading City Football Club for another season.
Reading City Football Club have successfully retained the services of centre back Eden Downes for the 2019/20 at least as he commits to another year with the club.
Eden made his debut in men's football last season as part of our partnership with John Madejski Academy and made a fantastic contribution to the side, so we're very glad to see him commit.
With Eden commiting to the club for at least another season, Simon Johnson and Sam Woodruff now have strength in depth for their back line.
We caught up with First Team Manager Simon Johnson to get his thoughts on Eden Downes re-signing for the club, here's what he had to say:
"Very happy to have Eden resigning. He had his debut season in men’s football last year and did very well. He is a talented centre back who has a good physical presence. I am looking forward to seeing how he progresses over the next season".
