The AGM will be followed by our first Fans' Forum of the season with Nigel Adkins as our guest.

This is an ideal opportunity for supporters to put questions to Nigel in an informal atmosphere, perhaps find out the real stories behind last seasons headlines and find out about the plans for building this seasons team? The evening and content is shaped around your questions. If you cannnot attend in person you can email your question to info@star-reading.org and we will endevour to include it during the evening. The questions and answers will appear in a future edition of our newsletter Reading Matter.

STAR 2014-15 Team Predictor Competition 

Once again STAR is running our Team Predictor for the 2014-15 season, a fun competition where you could also receive a cash prize. The more who enter the bigger the prizes!

Simply select one team from each of a number of groups – 17 teams in all. You score the number of points that team ends the season on. The person with the most points wins 35% of all entry fees, the second highest gets 10% and the third gets 5%. We will be publishing positions regularly throughout the season.

Half of all entry fees will be donated to the Reading FC Academy for use on a specific project they could not otherwise afford (e.g. tournament travel/expenses etc). Each entry costs £5. You can enter as many times as you like and is open to non-members as well as members. Closing date for entries has been extended to 5th September.

You can download a copy of the entry form here. You can hand in completed entries to the STAR shop, post to the address on the form or if you are coming to our AGM and Fans' Forum (see below) you can hand it in there.

STAR Represented in Parliament Consultation

On 2nd July STAR Board member Roger Titford attended a consultation with the shadow sports minister Clive Efford MP at the Houses of Parliament. Around 25 delegates from supporters trust, supporters clubs, Supporters Direct and the National Federation were present to ensure the views of supporters are being put forward.

The discussion covered football governance, supporters representation and ownership models. We will continue to monitor and contribute to this ongoing debate.
