Young Reading FC goalkeeper Jokull Andresson shows class with heartwarming charity gesture


Jokull Andresson showed his class by donating £ 100 to a charity established in memory of a former striker from Exeter City, the club where he recently stayed on loan.

The young Reading goalkeeper played nine games for the Grecians between late October and late November on emergency loan with the League Two side.

The 19-year-old made a strong impression on the Devon side and quickly joined City’s fanbase with a series of impressive displays between the sticks.

His last game was in the FA Cup in a 3-2 win over Gillingham on Saturday 28 November and he is now back at Reading.

However, he seems to want to keep in touch with the club that gave him his league debut and showed his class by donating three figures to a foundation created by brothers Tom and Jack Vickery in memory of Adam Stansfield who represented the club between 2006 and 2010.

The brothers raised over £ 73,000 for the Adam Stansfield Foundation, which was established by Adam’s family after his death in August 2010 at the age of 31 after a battle with bowel cancer.

Andresson wrote the fundraising page : “Hello guys this is Jokull Andresson, I just wanted to say that I really respect and appreciate what you do and I just wanted to say keep it up like this, hope you have a wonderful Christmas and happy holidays”

The Vickery brothers led the Great West Run in 2019 and organize various fundraising events to help the charity which aims to give young people the opportunity to develop life skills, through football and to help them ” live their dream, ”as Stansfield did.

Stansfield has played over 140 games for Exeter, and he has also represented Yeovil Town and Hereford United.
