Exclusive features with Akpan and Carrico
Read up on our new boys in tomorrow's official matchday programme - as 'The Royal' exclusively speaks to Daniel Carrico and Hope Akpan!
There'll be in-depth features on both players and, as Carrico is set to become the first Portuguese man to play for Reading - we give you a rundown on all the previous nations that have represented the Royals.
As ever, we have notes from manager Brian McDermott and skipper McAnuff as the pair introduce a brand new year to Royal supporters and look back on past three games.
Those three games are covered in the editions as we give you our usual match reports, as well as a mixture of news, history and tricky quizzes.
It will be on sale in and around the ground for the usual price of £3.
Don’t forget, if you're not going to the game - then 'The Royal' is now accessible in an amazing new App, available now for download on iPhone and iPad as well as Android, PC and Mac. The App brings you every issue digitally, including back issues from our previous two play-off reaching and promotion-winning campaigns!
Whats more - you'll be able to cast your eyes over The Royal's exclusive content before anybody else, as our digital editions will be on sale soon before every game!
The App itself is completely free to download, and our first Barclays Premier League programme of this season is available for all to download free of charge – so why not test out the experience on your PC, tablet or mobile phone right now?
Some issues will even contain special added features - check out page 18 of our the Stoke programme for instance!
