In mid-November, we opened nominations for the Reading FC Team of the Decade, asking you to pick which players you thought had stood out the most in the last ten years. These nominations then formed part of shortlists for each position, before a final vote was held to find out the best XI.

Over the last 11 days, we revealed one-by-one which current and former Royals made it into the team, and you can find all these individual profiles, featuring memorable moments for every player, by clicking here.
