THE Chronicle is searching for loyal Reading fans to share their stories with the town.

With Brian McDermott's men within touching distance of a triumphant return to the Premier League, we are urging readers to get in touch and tell us about their love affair with the club.

Your house may be covered in Royals memorabilia, you may be a diehard fan who has missed an important family do or work function to make a vital Reading match, or not missed a game all season or even longer.

Do you have to travel hundreds of miles to make a home match? Is part of Elm Park sitting in your back garden? Have you ever bumped into your Reading heroes in the most unusual of locations?

Are your children named after some of the Simod Cup winning side of 1988? Did your wedding have a blue and white theme? Or do you go to games with multiple generations of your Royals supporting family?

If you have a story to tell, help us celebrate the town's passion for the club by calling the newsdesk on 0118 955 3308 or emailing
