Reading City Football Club have signed experienced centre-back Michael Butcher.
Reading City Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of Michael Butcher. Michael is already a familiar face around The Rivermoor as he's Director of Football at John Madejski Academy's Football Performance Programme who we're proudly partnered with.
Michael was most recently the Assistant Manager at Bracknell Town but left earlier this month and look for a new challenge, we're very pleased that he's chosen to join us as he has a lot of experience having played for AFC Wallingford, Oxford City, Kidlington, Windsor, Henley Town and Woodcote.
He also had two spells with Reading Town, who previously occupied Scours Lane, now known as The Rivermoor before our arrival in West Reading in 2016.
We spoke to First Team Manager Simon Johnson about our new arrival, here's what he had to say:
Pleasure to have a player with Butch’s experience, passion and game understanding join our club. A fantastic addition on and off the pitch.
