Academy product wins fans' vote for 2013-14Royals youngster Jordan Obita was named our Player of the Season for 2013-14 before today's final home fixture against Burnley.
Obita was voted as your winner of the trophy this season, ahead of Chris Gunter in second and Danny Williams in third.
It marks an incredible rise through the ranks for the Royals star, who first joined the club at the age of eight before making his first team debut aged only 16.
In 2013-14, Obita made 34(+2) appearances, scoring his first Reading goal in a 3-2 win at Nottingham Forest back in November, and making a new left-back role his own with consistent performances throughout the second half of the season as part of our back four.
Jordan's accolade is testament to the hard work that has gone into an Academy system which remains the envy of so many across the country.
In four of the last five years, Academy players have taken the Player of the Season gong - Jordan following in the footsteps of Gylfi Sigurdsson, Shane Long and Alex Pearce. And that's not to mention Jem Karacan, Alex McCarthy and Hal Robson-Kanu all named amongst the top three in the fans' votes over the last couple of seasons.
But primarily Player of the Season status is just reward for the player himself, who has been professional in his approach from the first moment he joined the club as a young boy and has been inspirational as part of Nigel Adkins' side this season.
Congratulations to Jordan from everyone at Reading Football Club.
