Academy cruise past Norwich
The Royals Academy prepared perfectly for their FA Youth Cup clash with Leeds United this Friday, with a 3-0 away win over last year's winners Norwich City in the Under 18s Premier League.
The Canaries picked up the prestigious trophy in May with a 4-2 aggregate win over Chelsea, but couldn't contain a rampant Reading side this weekend - who took a two goal lead into the break thanks to midfielder Sammi Fridjonsson.
The Icelandic under 19 international now has five goals in seven games, whilst substitute striker De'Jaune Taylor-Crossdale fired home just after the hour mark to seal the victory.
Our Academy now head up to Elland Road for Friday's third round clash (kick off 7pm) - with live updates of course available on our Twitter feed.
