Pick up a copy of 'The Royal' tomorrowJake Cooper caught the attention of everyone in the Championship last weekend by scoring two goals in Reading’s hard-fought victory at Norwich City.
So, this week, the club’s official matchday magazine, The Royal, caught up with the young defender to discuss his memorable afternoon in Norfolk.
In an in-depth interview, the 19-year-old talks about his family links to Reading Football Club, his injury frustrations of last season and the former Royals stars that he used to call his idols.
Elsewhere in the 84-page issue, supporters can look back at the win over the Canaries, and also hear from Fran Kirby – who became Reading’s first professional female player last month.
First-team manager Nigel Adkins has his say on tomorrow’s game and, in his regular column, club captain Jem Karacan provides an honest insight into his knee injury and recovery progress.
Priced at £3, the latest edition of The Royal is not to be missed!
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, or buy online via Reading FC Direct.
