Home Programme Stock Surplus

We are in the midst of sorting our huge stock of old programmes into something much more manageable and useful. It is likely we will have to dispose of some bulk stocks of home programmes from the 1970s to 2000s. It would be great if we could give some unsorted batches away to schools or old people’s homes or anyone else who would find them useful / help spread some goodwill for the club. If you think you can help please get in touch via media@star-reading.org.


As well as before all home matches, the STAR Base will be open on Tuesday evenings 7.30 - 9pm (when not playing away) for coach bookings for the below away fixtures.
