A thousand miles away, but just round the corner in spirit
Anniversary of good-bye to Elm Park
14 years ago today Reading FC played its last game at Elm park, after 102 years of football at the ground. The game itself was an anti-climax - Reading 0 Norwich City 1 - for Reading were already relegated to the then Division 2. But 14,800 faithfuls showed up for this momentous event.
Our team that day: Howie, Gray, Bernal, Primus, Kelly (Brayson), Lovell; Parkie, Caskey, Meaker (Lambert), O'Neil, Fleck. Tommy Burns was our manager at that point, but was shortly fired.
