Pick up your FA Cup quarter final editionPick up tonight’s FA Cup quarter final edition of The Royal for £3 at Madejski Stadium, as we bid to book their place at Wembley for the second year running!
Inside our programme there will be a special 15-page feature on the impact our Academy has had on recent cup runs.
Reading have reached the last eight of four occasions since 2010; an achievement that the Academy has played a massive part in! In the last round alone against West Bromwich Albion, Brian McDermott’s starting XI featured no fewer than five Academy graduates.
With our quarter final taking place on a Friday evening, we also take a look back on memorable moments from Friday fixtures in the club’s recent past.
Elsewhere in The Royal, the manager welcomes his good friend Alan Pardew back to Madejski Stadium, and in the captain's notes skipper Paul McShane describes how he wants the team to get ‘stuck in’ against their Premier League opponents.
There will also be full match reports from Reading’s 2-2 draw with Fulham and last Tuesday’s trip to Huddersfield, as well as historical articles, ticket news and all the information about our opponents tonight.
The Royal is available at outlets throughout the ground and in the club Megastore, so make sure you don’t miss out on your copy!
