Reading Fans Join Support For Attacked Watford Supporter Nic Cruwys
Reading supporters at Saturday's away match at Watford joined home fans in a minute’s applause in the 44th minute of the game in honour of father-of-two Nic Cruwys, 44, who was viciously attacked following Watford’s 2-2 draw at Wolverhampton Wanderers the previous weekend, suffering a serious head injury.
Watford fan group The 1881 movement, supported by the Watford Supporters Trust, also arranged a banner and the release of 44 yellow balloons. Following the attack, a Wolves supporter created a donation page called the Nic Cruwys’ Future Football Fund which has currently raised more than £32,000.
You can find out more about the Fund by visiting the Campaign page.
