AS Reading FC U23s wait to see who they will meet in the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup final, they have come under investigation themselves.

They are due to meet Marlow on Bank Holiday Monday, May 6.

But the Bostik League side are in danger of being thrown out of the competition following a complaint from Slough they fielded at least two ineligible players in their 1-0 semi-final win in addition to one in their second-round victory against Ascot United.

It has now emerged the B&B have also been looking into the side Royals fielded in their semi-final win at Maidenhead United last month.

They could make their findings known by the end of this week.

THE Reading Invitation Senior Cup final to be played at Madejski Stadium next month will be an all-Hellenic League affair.

AFC Aldermaston take on Division One East rivals Wallingford Town in the first semi-final next Wednesday, April 17, followed a week later by a tie involving Premier Division pair Reading City and Wantage Town.

READING City have linked up in a technical capacity with Global Premier Soccer, one of the most successful and largest youth soccer organisations in the world.

And this has led to current first-team head coach Simon Johnson also becoming the Scours Lane club's director of coaching.

City report: "Preparations to build a solid foundation to implement everything the GPS partnership has to offer for the 2019/20 season are fully underway."

Another Berkshire club, Bracknell Town, have also forged a close link with GPS and recently sent a group to Spain to attend a coaching week at the organisation's flagship club, Valencia.

FORMER Reading FC player Jay Tabb has his sights on becoming a jockey.

He has always been interested in horse racing, being part of an owners' syndicate.

The 35-year-old switched to playing rugby for a time, but is now on a 12-week training course at the Northern Racing College in Doncaster and has already lost two stone in the gym.

"I want to learn how to ride a horse, how to look after one, mucking out – all of it,” said Tabb, who co-owns Mister Miyagi with friend and former Coventry City teammate Ben Turner.
