Reading have come together for their 2023/24 squad photo in a show of unity and team spirit after a challenging few months filled with off-pitch drama.

To celebrate our brilliant Royals, we have published the team photo as our centrefold in this week's Chronicle so you can stick it up and show your support to the club at this tough time.

This year's squad picture includes all players who have made the line-up on match day, including a number of emerging stars who have graduated from the Royals' academy.

For 24 of the team, this is the first time they have been invited to the Royals’ senior squad photo. Not only players, backroom staff and assisting boss Ruben Selles have joined in.

It isn't the first appearance for experienced heads Mark Bowen and Eddie Niedzwiecki, who have now been in multiple squad photos. Bowen - now director of football operations - was first-team manager in 2019/20 while Niedzwiecki was first on the coaching staff more than 30 years ago.

The Reading Chronicle is out on Thursdays in all good retailers, supermarkets and news agents so make sure you pick up a copy.
