Football can be all encompassing but sometimes you read about a moment in the paper or on social media that really makes you think about the good the game can do.

Step forward Tuffley Rovers who on Saturday held a minutes silence in memory of Reading City manager Andy Findlay’s father.

The act was a complete surprise to Findlay who sadly lost his father Malcolm last week to Motor Neurone Disease.

Andy said of the gesture: “They were unreal, really did not expect such a gesture, some of their players were superb as well taking time to personally give me their best wishes after the game on the pitch.

“The memory will stay with me forever and I think sums up grass roots football, more in touch with the people and it’s supporters than many professional clubs.”

Reading City chairman Martin Laws said on twitter: “Huge respect from Tuffley Rovers and Neil, a class act to arrange a minutes silence before the game for our manager Andy in memory of his dad who passed this week.”
