Reading campaign group Sell Before We Dai have confirmed plans for a protest march from the town centre to the SCL Stadium ahead of the clash with league leaders Portsmouth at the end of the month.

Having disrupted two matches with tennis balls, the group have taken inspiration from over 40 years ago for the next organised demonstration.

In 1983, media mogul Robert Maxwell had planned on merging Oxford United and Reading to create Thames Valley Royals.

Causing uproar in both camps, the U's supporters staged a sit-in on the Manor Ground pitch, while hundreds of Royals took to the streets of the town to protest the merger.

Eventually falling flat on its face, it is still one of the most talked about events of modern Reading history.

After facing months of anguish at the negligent hands of Dai Yongge, the group are calling for the town to come out and back the football club.

Starting from 12pm at Blue Collar Street Food on Hosier Street on Saturday, October 28, the demonstration concludes at the SCL Stadium ahead of the game.

The group have liaised with Reading Borough Council and Thames Valley Police to ensure it is safe, and there are further points down the route where those less able to walk the full distance can join in.
