Friday's 60th

27 July 2012

Robin's birthday

The legendary Robin Friday would have been 60 today.

Robin, voted as the best ever player in the club's history, was born on this day in 1952.

Friday scored 46 goals in 121 Reading appearances in the mid 1970s, and his flair, ability and mercurial talent have put him forever in Reading folklore.

His career was far too short, and he sadly passed away aged just 38 in 1990.

Much more on the legendary Royal is on his very in-depth Wikipedia page.

He was also the subject of a popular book 'The Greatest Footballer You Never Saw' and it has been said that the film industry is considering bringing his story to the big screen.

Happy Birthday Robin from your club.
