AVE Services provided the unveiling package for the Reading Football Club to unveiling the Eamonn Dolan tribute at the Madejski Stadium on the 6th August. Sir John Madejski and the Dolan family were there to watch the unveiling of the plaque and the football stand.
Hundreds of the local fans gathered and gave a round of applause as the plaque was revealed. Above the plaque was a 7 meter high and 7m wide image of Eamonn, which was then made up of 400 small pictures of the 32 academy players who had progressed through to play in Reading’s first team during his time at the club.
The image along with the plaque is now a permanent feature on the stadium wall which will help his memory live on.
It was lovely to meet you and your colleague yesterday.
Thank you so much for working with us, I appreciate the timing was tight and so it was great to be able to source the curtains at such short notice. Thank you for visiting the stadium on Friday as well, it’s so good that you did, especially with the slope!
It was a really difficult day for everyone associated with the club and of course Eamonn’s family and so I’m pleased we were able to ensure the unveiling of the plaque ran so smoothly.
