Reading City Football Club are delighted to announce that experienced centre back Phil Veal has put pen to paper and becomes our first summer signing, he joins from near-neighbours Binfield.

As the transfer window opens Simon Johnson has moved early to bolster his defensive options ahead of our 22/23 Combined Counties Premier Division North campaign and we're thrilled that Phil has decided to join the Cityzens for the upcoming season.

Our newest arrival most recently played for Binfield, where he was a member of the squad that reached the Final of the FA Vase in 2021 but has also had spells at Exeter City, Taunton Town, Cinderford Town & Shortwood. His arrival is an exciting time for the Cityzens as a player with Phil's experience and calibre will help us push on.

We spoke to First Team Manager, Simon Johnson following Phil putting pen-to-paper and here's what he had to say about securing the services of his first summer signing:

'Pleasure to have Phil joining us for the season. He’s had a successful spell at Binfield, and we required a centre half to take us to the next level, so it was a no brainer to try and get Phil in. Thankfully, it was a success and I look forward to working with him’.
