Don't miss 'The Royal'

26 October 2012

Tons of content in Saturday's programme

As always - plenty of stuff going on around the Madejski Stadium, and as the club do its utmost during the 'Weeks of Action', we caught up with the ever-passionate Jason Roberts for his feelings surrounding racism, and also spoke to manager Brian McDermott and skipper Jobi McAnuff ahead of Saturday's match with Fulham.

Inside, we have full colour images and reports from our two recent away games - including the Royals' 2-2 draw at Swansea and the narrow defeat suffered at Anfield last weekend.

During that point gained at the Liberty Stadium, Pavel Pogrebnyak notched the club's 100th Premier League goal. We take a look through the history books and pick out the same top flight milestone achieved by various other clubs.

We also bring you the lowdown on our opponents Fulham - read up on their manager Martin Jol, their squad and who the Royals should watch out for come 3pm on Saturday.

The Academy are unstoppable at the moment - and so is striker Uche Ikpeazu. We speak to the towering striker after he stole the show with a sublime hat-trick against Arsenal - the team he supported as a boy.

Meet the next Alex Pearce - quite literally. Our U11s defender goes by the same name as the Ireland international - and the two of them met for the first time.

Young Royals can also win a signed Garath McCleary shirt in the Fanzine's competition - and, as always, we'll have our regular quiz for you to get your teeth stuck into.

‘The Royal’ has fewer adverts than last season – so your programme is jam-packed with content. But the matchday programme remains only £3 this season – and is excellent value for money.

Copies of the 84-page perfect bound publication are available to buy at readingfcdirect.co.uk now - and back issues of this season's issues will be online throughout the season.

And, remember, if you get every issue this season, the spines will come together to form a beautiful image of Madejski Stadium, shot during the 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest that sealed promotion last April! See a preview of how it will look here.
