The co-chairwoman of Reading FC has written a new club song that will be played at the club's first home game of the season against Leeds United.

Khunying Sasima Svrikorn has co-written 'They Call us the Royals' with the song to be played ahead of kick-off on Saturday at the Madejski Stadium - the song includes a rap verse and a music video that will be beamed on the big screen.

Lady Svikorn has said she wrote the song as "a gift" to the club.

“I, along with my friends, wrote a song as a gift for Reading Football Club,” she told Get Reading.

“We have made a music video together with it. So it will be an opening show. I was in the studio for many days doing that. It’s so meaningful for us to open the season well and for us to feel the spirit and the emotion of the fans with us. They have to be inside us.

“So we wrote the song which I’m pretty proud of. We tried to do the song in a trendy way. I used to compose songs for my country, we did the Asian games, by this one we’re aiming at the crowd. This is British rock.”

She added: “This is a good opportunity to welcome our fans to the first home game of the season.

“I didn’t do it alone. I did it with friends. The one who wrote the melody is a world class composer, his name is Henrik Algren, he’s a friend of my friend’s son.

“We worked together well. I shared my idea, my concept. I wrote something and he corrected it. We had a lot of fun. But I can’t claim I did it on my own.”

We Are The Royals

Verse 1

We started when all the odds defied us

Through passion and dreams we reached new heights

We were marching proudly from Elm Park into the stadium

We forced our rivals to make way

Pre chorus

Now we’re here and we’re strong, we’re going to bring it on

Can you hear when we shout come on

Chorus

We will fight til the end, they call us the Royals

With our might we’ll defend, the glory of Reading

Like the kings of our land, they call us the Royals

Let us sing every man, we stand by the Royals

Verse 2

We rise to the challenge of our rivals

We’re fighting the butterflies tonight

It’s our moment, feel the expectations rising

We smell a victory today

Rap

How we love the thrill of a good game

How we like the smell of the fame

Doesn’t matter if we learn or win

Unstoppably we burn within

Getting ready to shed our sweat

Everybody get ready and set

Let’s celebrate tonight. Or blood is blue our wings are white.

Chant

Blue and white, blue and white, blue and white

Give us blue and white, blue and white. Everybody come on.

A capella

Like the kings of our land. they call us the Royals

Let us sing every man, we stand by the Royals
