STAR to host second 'Hall of Fame' event

21 March 2017

Next batch of legends to enter STAR’s Reading FC 'Hall of Fame'

There is just over a week to go before the next batch of legends to enter STAR’s Reading FC Hall of Fame is announced.

The ceremony will take place on Thursday 30th March at The Princess Suite, Madejski Stadium. And this year the event will be open to both STAR members and non-members!

The evening is a celebration of Reading things past and present. STAR have invited several groups to display what they do in the world of Reading FC football around the edges of the Princess Suite before the main event..
  • The Former Players’ Association
  • The Collectors & Historians
  • The Tilehurst End
  • Reading FC Community Trust
  • And of course STAR Travel and STAR Souvenirs
There will be a quick-fire quiz that everyone can take part in, under the stewardship of Ady Williams, and a raffle for a match-worn at Old Trafford Jem Karacan shirt. And a Sean Morrison one too!

Inducting thirteen new names
Then the main event, compered by Paul Allen and Roger Titford, is the induction of thirteen new names into STAR’s Reading FC Hall of Fame. The contribution of each to the club will be described in turn, together with some match action snippets and a few words from someone who knew them well, where possible.

The Hall of Fame inductees are fairly evenly spread across the club’s 145-year history so you could find about some men who made crucial or interesting contributions that now get overlooked.

Free and open to non-members
The event is free to attend and open to STAR Members and, this year, non-members. Doors and bar open at 7.30pm.

STAR does require non-members to register on the guest list in order to gain entry to the event as the Princess Suite has a finite capacity. To register, email and for latest news on the event please visit

Last year’s Hall of Fame inductees were Edward Haygarth, Joey Warburton, Allen Foster, John Arlott, Tommy Tait, Ronnie Blackman, Johnny Walker, Gordon Neate, Roger Smee, Ady Williams and Graeme Murty.
