Howard Electrical Services become lighting partner to The Rivermoor.

Reading City Football Club is delighted to announce that Reading based Howard Electrical Services have become the official lighting partner to The Rivermoor.

Earlier this year The Rivermoor's floodlights needed to pass a floodlight test in order to receive Hellenic League certification for another two years, and at our darkest hour we thankfully found our hero in Chris and his company Howard Electrical Services, who we cannot thank enough for ensuring we secured the Hellenic Leagues certification.

As Howard Electrical Services have a long standing relationship with Reading Football Club and are the preferred electrical contractor for the Madejski Stadium, Chris was able to use his contacts within football to help us secure donations of replacement cabling and lighting for them to fit at The Rivermoor, we cannot thank Howard Electrical Services enough for the hours spent sourcing and fitting parts.

There were many evenings spent at The Rivermoor during the summer months to ensure we met the floodlight requirements set by the Hellenic Football League often working as late as midnight to wait for the correct level of darkness to arrive for the tests and re-tests, we really appreciate the support from Chris and his team at Howard Electrical Services during what was a stressful time for all of us at Reading City Football Club. Together with hard work and determination we ensured the lights met the requirements and have been recertified until 2021.

Howard Electrical Services have provided the following statement:

"Howard Electrical services (Reading) Ltd are very happy to continue their support and working with the team for the ongoing maintenance of the floodlighting at Reading City Football Club. It was a tough pre-season with lots of repairs and upgrade of cabling to ensure the system was approved and ready for this season".

Ryan Sheehan, media and public relations manager has provided the following statement on behalf of Reading City Football Club:

"Everyone at Reading City Football Club is truly grateful for everything that Chris and everyone at Howard Electrical Services did for the club earlier this year to ensure our floodlights passed the Hellenic League requirements, had we not got the certification the ramifications would have been damaging for the club. They went above and beyond to source replacement lighting and cabling, and kindly fitted this for us too. Their tireless efforts, which also saw them work as late as midnight to wait for the right level of darkness during the summer months so that they lights could be tested and retested are much appreciated.
As a result of the work done by Howard Electrical Services at the Rivermoor already, we have built a good relationship with them and are therefore delighted to announce that they our preferred contractor for the maintenance of the floodlights at The Rivermoor.
We look forward to continuing to grow our relationship with Howard Electrical Services".
