Date of birth
Son to the current Royals’ U21s coach Martin Kuhl, Aaron first joined up with the club back in 2008. Born in Bath, he attended secondary school at Yateley in Hampshire before making his way to Reading as a scholar.
His breakthrough in the Academy came during the 2011/12 season when he made his debut for the U18s in their final match of the campaign against Birmingham.
Though he was only a first year scholar at the time, Kuhl went on to captain the U18s side for the 2012/13 season and led them all the way to the Premier League final.
Stepping into the U21s squad for the resulting season, his performances began to turn heads at Manchester City as the Royals stunned all by winning the Premier League Cup, defeating the Blues 4-3 on aggregate.
Having signed a professional contract that December alongside Jack Stacey, Kuhl made his senior team bow eight months later in our home match against Huddersfield Town in August.
Four days after being introduced to the fans as a half-time substitute, he made his first start for Nigel Adkins’ side as the squad faced a tricky away voyage to the City Ground to face Nottingham Forest.
Ending that season with 5(+3) appearances in a Reading shirt, he was one of eleven Academy products to make their breakthrough to the first team.
