The Magnificent Seven

28 January 2014

Our 7-1 win is the focus in 'The Royal'

Tonight's programme pays special tribute to the historic eight-goal demolition of Bolton Wanderers in our last game at Madejski Stadium.

With thanks to our statisticians and historians, the 'showcase' feature goes into serious depth in researching how the 7-1 victory compares to our big wins throughout the ages.

And we also take a look at Alfie's hat-trick, how many times he's done it before, what other trebles our squad have produced in their careers so far and the club's hat-trick history to boot.

In the main body of the programme meanwhile, we feature an exclusive interview with one of the scorers in that big win - Hope Akpan.

We have all the information on our visitors, including their new caretaker manager, as well as manager's notes and the captain's view as the January transfer window nears an end.

Our FA Youth Cup win over Crewe Alexandra is reported on in full, we have historical features on former Royals Johnny Brooks and Dai Evans, a Young Royals Fanzine and quizzes galore, plus all the latest from in and around Madejski Stadium. 

The programme is still only £3, remains perfect bound, 84 pages long and jam-packed with content. 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
