Date of birth
A graduate of the Royals' Academy, Tom Holmes' promise manifested itself in a first-team debut whilst aged just 17.
Six days before his 18th birthday, the centre-half was thrust into a starting role against Bolton Wanderers at Madejski Stadium in March 2018 - and put in a good showing to help Reading to earn a 1-1 draw.
That senior-team call-up came in part as a result for impressive displays for our Under-23 side earlier in the campaign.
He had worked his way up through the age-groups at Hogwood - initially joining the club in 2008 as an Under-9.
