It was a season that drifted from one version of mediocrity to another but at the very least it didn’t cost Reading their Championship status.

Rounding up the 2017/18 campaign with a look across what signs we missed in pre-season, the key turning points, the false revivals and more, are Marc Mayo and Simeon ‘BucksRoyal’ Pickup, in episode 161 of The Tilehurst End Podcast.

A huge thank you to all who continue to listen to the show amid some poor football and a change of presenter this season. We’ll endeavour to be back in one form or another come the 2018/19 push for promotion. Cmon Urz!

Saturday sees Reading FC Women play their final home game of the season against Liverpool at the Madejski Stadium from 14:00 and, with the campaign having gone rather well to this point, TTE thought it was time to focus in on how the side are getting on.

Ahead of the match, Marc went down to their training session to talk to England internationals and Royals midfielders Fara Williams and Jo Potter, talking all things Reading, growth in the women’s game and more.

Also popping onto the show is Reading fan Paula Martin, who kindly gave her perspective of the season from the Adams Park terraces.
