Support the U23s in PL Cup semi on Sunday… for free!

26 April 2017

Head down to Madejski Stadium on Sunday

It’s free entry and free parking for all this Sunday 30th April, as our Under-23s take on Norwich City in the semi-final of the Premier League Cup at Madejski Stadium.

Kicking off at 1pm, Martin Kuhl’s youngsters are just 90 minutes away from sealing a place in the final, where they would play the winner of the other semi-final tie between Swansea City and Portsmouth.

The Royals proudly lifted the silverware in the competition’s inaugural year back in 2014 – and we’re just two hurdles away from achieving that feat all over again.

Reading’s campaign began back in October – and we finished top of a group which also featured Birmingham City, Stoke City and Sheffield United to book a place in the next stage.  And north-east duo Middlesbrough and Newcastle were defeated in succession as we earned a place in the final four.

But Norwich shouldn’t be underestimated.  While the Canaries have been struggling in the lower reaches of Premier League 2 Division 2 this season, their cup campaign has been particularly noteworthy.  A 5-0 thrashing of Wolves in the second round was followed by a shoot-out win against Fulham after a pulsating 5-5 draw AET.  And they upset the odds in the quarters to defeat hosts Liverpool and set a date at Madejski Stadium.

So you’re warmly invited to come and support our talented youngsters as they look to reach the last two on Monday evening – back the boys and help them through to the final!
