The Big Match!

12 February 2014

STAR showcase Arsenal footage

Our supporters club STAR recently paid tribute to a classic match in our history, by showcasing previously lost footage that had not been seen in over 40 years!

Wednesday 5th February was the 42nd anniversary of Reading’s epic FA Cup tie with Arsenal in 1972 and to celebrate a memorable Cup run STAR organised a Nostalgia Evening at the Town Hall.  

After a look back at Reading’s progress to the 4th Round with Roger Titford, ITV’s Big Match highlights of the Arsenal game were shown – for the first time since 1972!  In the audience – and on the platform afterwards to take questions – were three players from the match, pictured here left to right: John Harley, Will Dixon and Gordon Cumming with Roger Titford of STAR.
