Dickie’s Story:
A former representative of the England U19s squad, Rob Dickie has been plying his trade with the Royals since the age of eight. 

The Academy graduate is a regular in the Reading U21s side and scored several times from defence during multiple U21s fixtures at Hogwood Park. 

The 20-year-old made his first loan move away from Reading when he joined National League South side Basingstoke Town for the 2014/15 season. Making 24 appearances he helped them to a third-place league finish and reach the play-offs in the process.   

In August 2015, Dickie made another loan move away from Madejski Stadium, signing on loan for Gary Johnson’s Cheltenham Town. 

He scored on his debut for the Robins, an 88th winner against Barrow at Whaddon Road. Dickie also netted a hat-trick in a 3-1 victory against Chelmsford City in the FA Trophy. 

The defender had made 26(+1) league appearances and scored three goals for Cheltenham in helping them secure an immediate return to the Football League. 

He then returned to Madejski Stadium to make his first team debut for the Royals in the final game of the season away at Blackburn. He was introduced to the crowd as a half-time substitute, replacing another Academy graduate in Josh Barrett.

In 2016-17, Dickie returned to Cheltenham on loan for a short period but spent most of the season skippering out Under-23s, whome he led to the Premier League Cup Final against Swansea City.
