Reading Sunday Social League (RSSL): Week 1 Match Report
Welcome aboard the home of The Hype Train and its very own grassroots football team, Hype Train Football Club. In April 2021 we announced the formation of a new grassroots football competition in the Reading area - the Reading Sunday Social League - an 8-team mini-league co-created by Hype Train FC and Caversham United that will be played out at three locations between April and June 2021. Here, we keep you updated each week with how the 7-game league is shaping up as the competition kicked off on Sunday 11th April 2021. All aboard.

Who is supporting the Reading Sunday Social League (RSSL)?:
Forming a football league overnight is no mean feat and it takes dedicated individuals to organise. Here at The Hype Train we have been at ground level organising by creating the league's official logo and all of its affiliated graphics, handbooks, trophy design, and will be providing regular updates and exclusives here at TheHypeTrain.co.uk as the league kicks on. Meanwhile, Caversham United have worked hard to organise the competing teams, sponsors, and fixtures ahead of an April 11th start.
We will be joined by the team at Football in Berkshire in providing weekly round-ups, unique coverage and news surrounding the league. The Football in Berkshire website reaches 15,000 monthly readers and provides excellent content from semi-pro to Sunday league competitions.
Sponsoring the tournament, and making our lofty aspirations of the league come true, are the brilliant team at Lens Digital. The team at we.are.lens are a web design agency based in Ascot, Berkshire specialising in user friendly, responsive custom website design/build, WordPress maintenance, support and SEO. If you're looking for a new website, check out the team today at wearelens.co.uk - they're also big advocates for local and grassroots football and currently sponsor Codicote FC of the Spartan South Midlands League.
Last but not least, we have been working closely with the team at Awards FC to create a beautiful and bespoke trophy for the competition, a trophy that we will soon hope to reveal in the coming weeks. The team at Awards specialise in creating bespoke trophies, medals and awards that perfectly tailor your club.
