Matchday Memories 



Doug Pike: My greatest Elm Park memory was as a 14 yr old standing in the Tilehurst End for the game against Plymouth in the record breaking 85-86 season. 3-0 down (I think, but may have been 3-1) and coming back to win 4-3. Went absolutely mental when the winning goal went in! What a season that was.

Callum Sangwell: Any of the comebacks in recent years have been favourites for me, it just adds that something special to a 3 point(s).

Stu Avant: My first match was Reading v Barnsley in the snow 1979, addictive club! 

John Carpenter: Meeting up with old friends each match day & a cup of bovril, Madejski taking charge, happy days.........

Paul Carpenter: The Tilehurst End, right behind the goal, wonderful memories.

Scott McAulay: Royals rendezvous for a pint then burger van and into the south bank!

Tim Donnelly: Me n my mate, Steve Portman, used to get train from Mortimer, off at Reading West, wander up to the ground n be met by Neil Webb who got us in for nothing as he was going out with another mates sister, Shelley, fabulous days!

Trudi Watkins: My dad had a season ticket for 35 years he used to drop me at my nans every Saturday before the game then come home with bovril breath in time for tea . Bob Gardener sadly lost my dad in Oct 2007 but he made it to the game the Saturday before he died and we still put blue and white flowers on his grave a royal to the end xx

Alistair Sean William Costelloe: My dad used to park me on the wall at the back of the Southbank - happy days.

Jacqui Webster: Smell of bovril from the kiosk at the back of tilehurst end....and deep heat from the players. Awesome memories that I share with my dad xx

Ash Lewin: My dad went to every home game since he was twelve up until 18, sat in the southbank.....true woodley royal

Chris Lanning: Robin Fridays wonder goal, mid 70' s against Tranmere. 5 nil win!
