The Reading Football Book features reprints of original newspaper reports from the Mirror, starting in the early part of the 20th century and finishing at the end of last season.
From 1912 to the end of last season, this Reading Football Book tracks the Royals’ fortunes, from prolonged stays in the lower divisions, through to the Premier League years during the Nougties.
Despite being one of the oldest teams in England, Reading didn’t join the Football League until 1920 – seven years after this book gets going. Since then, the Royals have had their fair share of ups and downs, from their hugely successful tour of Italy in 1913, to their Simod Cup victory in 1988. And, of course, the book uses reprints of original newspaper reports to chart the club’s rise from perennial lower leaguers to Premier League overachievers. What’s more, you’ll also find accounts on legends including Robin Friday, Trevor Senior, the ominously named Steve Death and Jimmy Quinn.
All the articles are printed on luxury paper and independently cut and bound in a hardback book.
Now available with colour print option for coverage from 2006 onwards.
