Simon Cox was a promising upstart during the 2005/06 record-breaking Reading FC campaign and a first-teamer reduced to the bench as the club reached the FA Cup semi-finals in his second spell in Berkshire.
In amongst those massive achievements for the team, the striker has experienced the wonderful tutelage of Eamonn Dolan and the sharp treatment of Steve Clarke. He has seen the club under Sir John Madejski and the Thais, been sent out on loan multiple times and sold twice.
The Tilehurst End Podcast caught up with Simon to discuss his considerable time with Reading and hear his side of a fascinating association between a footballer and his hometown team.
