Reading FC Pre-Madejski Stadium Home Kits World Cup 1992-94 v 1994-96

New, comment

Our second semi-final is an all Pelada tie and might be a bit of a toughie for you.

1992-1994

This kit narrowly won its quarter final against our sky blue and white Ajax style kit. The first season we wore this kit it was made by Brooks, but in the second season it was made by Pelada. The kit manufacturer changed but the design stayed exactly the same.

We won the Division Two (now League One) title in the 1993/1994 season, with Jimmy Quinn scored an incredible 40 goals. No Reading player has since come close to that incredible record.

1994-1996

This kit had the easiest victory of our four semi-finalists. It gained a comfortable passage to the last four with 88% of the votes against the navy stripes we wore from 1891 to 1938.

The first season we wore this kit will forever remain one of the most memorable in the club's history. Despite being the smallest club in the division we narrowly missed out on promotion, playing some of the best football a Reading team has ever played.

We also won the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup. I told you it was a great season!
