We moved from Barnsley in 1978 to London. Every kid usedto take the p*** of this 11 year old who supported a strange northern team. My grandparents lived near maidenhead and when I stay there, Grandad would sometimes take me to watch Reading play at Elm Park. I remember how we visited my grandparents one weekend and I spent all morning trying to persuade my grandad to take me to Elm Park that afternoon but he wouldn't. Reading's opponents that afternoon were the Super Reds, only when the result came they hadn't been so super. Yep, the game Grandad wouldn't take me to, was Joe Joyce's debut, the 7-0 defeat! Boy, did I get stick back at school. I was only glad i wasn't there!
