Remembrance Ceremony for Former Reading FC Players

Outside the Players’ Entrance on Saturday 8th November 2014 before the Charlton match, almost 100 years to the day that World War One began, a service was held in front of the memorial for our former Reading players who tragically lost their lives in battle in the First and Second World Wars.


Supporters joined Reading FC Chaplain Steve Prince as the Rev. Vernon Orr took the service. Wreaths were laid by Sir John Madejski on behalf of Reading Football Club, Pete Vickery on behalf of STAR, Ron Grant on behalf of The Reading FC Former Players' Association, Blake Meier for the young Reading Supporters, relatives of fallen players and the British Legion.



STAR Welcomes Football's Fit and Proper Person Test Legal Boost

STAR warmly welcomes Damian Collins MP's Football Governance Bill and wishes it every success.  Even in the USA clubs have more protection from undesirable and secretive owners than clubs in the UK. Frankly, this should be an uncontroversial measure supported by all sides of the House.  In a period of little legislative activity we would hope this can be enacted within this Parliament and not just become the subject of another manifesto commitment to football governance reform. 

 STAR has recently queried with the Football League the lack of any supporter voice in the Owners and Directors Test process and awaits a full reply on this related matter.

You can read more about the bill here.


STAR and RFC Senior Managers Meeting

On 22nd October representatives from STAR held their regular meeting with Senior Managers from the club. Topics discussed included the direction of the club following ownership change, impetus and momentum of the club, the new family area at the stadium and the Royalty Points scheme among others.

A summary of the discussions can be downloaded here.

If supporters have any questions, concerns or observations suitable for consideration at the next meeting please contact us at
