READING, Pa. - The Reading United have a chance to make an impression on their MLS parent club when the Philadelphia Union comes to town on Friday night.
The Union will come to Exeter's Don Thomas Stadium to face their PDL partners for the fourth time since the two clubs became affiliated. Kickoff is set for 7:00.
In late 2009, Reading and Philadelphia inked a player development agreement that makes Reading the exclusive PDL Player Development Partner of the Philadelphia Union. The Union have also benefitted, as a trio of Union players are Reading United alum: forward Aaron Wheeler (2009), defender Ray Gaddis (2010-2011) and midfielder Leo Fernandes (2012). Additionally, Union assistant coaches Brendan Burke and Jim Curtin also have Reading ties, as Burke is currently the head coach of Reading United and Curtin was previously the Reading Super 20 Men's coach.
