The FA 150th Anniversay Tube Map

Royals supporters can get on the midfielders line from Steve Coppell to Johan Cruyff with The Football Association's 150th anniversary!

The FA's reimagining of the London Underground map, which can be accessed by clicking here, has been published to help celebrate the 150th anniversary of its Association and also the Tube, which were both founded in 1863.

Former Royals managers Roy Bentley and Harry Johnston can be found on the goalscorers and central defenders lines respectively, with legendary manager Steve Coppell on the midfielder's line.

Ex-players Les Ferdinand, Martin Keown, Jim Leighton (loan), Matthew Upson (loan) and Chris Woods are also on the map.

The renowned George Best and Martin Peters can also be spotted - the pair once pulled on a Reading shirt when the Royals played New Zealand as part of their World Cup qualifier preparations, on 29th October 1985.
