New Year's messages from chairman, manager and captainThe first issue of 'The Royal' in 2014 brings you exclusive New Year's messages from the Chairman, the manager and the captain as the second half of the season begins in earnest.
We feature an interview with the ever-dependable and valuably versatile Shaun Cummings, and our New Year's Day programme also publishes Part Six of our Mad Men series, run in the Showcase section of Wednesday's issue.
Amongst those profiled in that special 15-page special are Ivar Ingimarsson, Ian Harte, Kevin Watson and Leroy Lita - whose memorable overhead kick against Crystal Palace in 2005 features on the back cover!
We have historical features on former Royals Lawrie Sanchez and John McBride, a Young Royals Fanzine in which you could win a signed shirt from our skipper, a quiz, and all the latest from in and around Madejski Stadium.
The programme is still only £3, remains perfect bound, 84 pages long and jam-packed with content. You can buy your copy from one of our two programme pods at the ground, from our sellers dotted around the stadium concourses, from the megastore and the Ticket Office - and if you miss a copy you can even buy your issue online at readingfcdirect.co.uk.
