DSC01583Welcome to Reading CSC

There has been a Celtic Supporters Club in Reading for over 30 years, having moved from pub to pub in the area as landlords and club members changed.  The Martin O’Neill CSC was formed in season 2005/06 and has found a home since then in the Gateway Irish Bar in Reading town centre, conveniently only a few minutes walk from the rail station. We welcome visitors in town for work or family visits, or from other CSCs who want to try the Gateway experience.

Liam Power has led the Club through all its iterations, and was appointed Honorary President in 2011 in recognition of this longevity and for his sheer tenacity in holding the club together throughout the years.  Fiona Wheatley has been Chair since 2011 and we’re grateful to Mick Richford, Charlie Docherty, Elaine Lingard and now Alisdair Ferguson for providing secretarial support over the years
