Our young midfielder Ryan Edwards enjoyed his first victory on loan at Aussie side Perth Glory this past weekend. The winger played 90 minutes in a 1-0 win over Melbourne Heart. Elsewhere, full back Nick Arnold has played a full part for Wycombe Wanderers in recent weeks - though fell to a narrow 2-1 defeat to Bury on Saturday, following a good win over Bristol Rovers in his last outing. In non-league, Nick's fellow Academy graduate Matt Partridge is still impressing for Basingstoke Town - helping his side to a 4-0 win over Dorchester Town. Goalkeeper Dan Lincoln has been recalled from his spell at Harrow Borough, whilst Jon Henly has joined Aldershot Town on a Youth Loan until 2nd January.

Daniel took on Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo in a 10 goal thriller which saw his side defeated by seven goals to three.
Byte Night Success
The Royals recently took part in a charity 'Byte Night' event in town - as 1000's of IT and business professionals across the country slept rough to raise money and awareness for youth homelessness. Our Mascot Kingsley also popped down, and so we were delighted to hear that the Thames Valley event has contributed a massive £160,000 so far towards an impressive £1m total.
