Taylor makes debut for Wales

14 October 2014

Royal on international stage

Jake Taylor made his debut for Wales last night and he should be very proud of this personal achievement.

The 22-year-old came on at a key time for his country, who were down to ten men with less than ten minutes to go and holding on to a 2-1 lead at home to Cyprus.

Boss Chris Coleman entrusted Jake to help see the game out, and they went on to take a vital win that sees them top of their qualification group.

Fellow Royal Hal Robson-Kanu got the winning goal, while Chris Gunter kept up an incredible record of not missing a Wales game for four years.

Jake's progression is a real credit to his own personal desire, ability and professionalism since he came to Madejski Stadium.

He came to Reading FC at the age of 8, and 14 years down the line he has now played for his country and is our second highest scorer this season with three to his name, starting nine of our eleven League matches in the campaign.

Born in Berkshire, Jake is a Reading fan and former season ticket holder so there are a number of reasons to be proud of his achievements.

The club's official Instagram account posted a photo of Jake's progression as a Royal, and it was shown on Sky Sports News HQ on Tuesday morning.
