Showcase feature this SaturdayThis weekend's edition of the Royal takes a special look at one of the club's most prized assets...the Reading FC Academy.
The matchday magazine's fifteen page showcase feature examines our youth system from top to bottom - examining how the Royals find the stars of tomorrow, and exactly how we nurture our future professionals.
It's all part of a programme packed full of content, including an in-depth interview with Kaspars Gorkss - in which the Latvian international talks about growing up with the beautiful game behind the Iron Curtain.
For the history buffs amongst our fan base, Club Historian David Downs profiles unsung hero Bobby Williams, whilst popular contributor Alan Sedunary takes a look back to life with the Biscuitmen in 1922.
Priced at only £3, the programme remains perfect bound, 84 pages long and jam-packed with reports, news and quizzes. 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 - and if you miss a copy you can even buy your issue online at readingfcdirect.co.uk.
