Sorry if covered elsewhere. The new club (recently amalgamated) has just been taken over by a local consortium.

Great to see the Town have a second club again, and maybe one Reading fans will invest an interest in when they can’t make a Reading FC away day.

What's with the "City" thing? The kind of propaganda you feel could detract from events on the pitch.

Amirite in saying the buses have now dropped "City Centre" in favour of the more ambiguous "Central Reading" :?:

Covered already in the non league thread. Highmoor Ibis diced to change their name to better represent where they actually play i.e. Scours Lane in Reading

The City suffix is just semantics as while Reading is not an official city the fact it has a Minster does qualify it in some definitions of the term.

No amalgamation, just a re-branding, and no change to the number of clubs in the town either.

The consortium take over could be interesting though, although I notice that there was no real indication of what they'll be bringing in to the club so it could just be more hot air and PR. They'll need a bit of budget to compete at the right end of the league.

Heard a rumour of some dodgy money being pumped in from a former Hellenic league manager, absolutely no evidence for that though as far as I can tell.

I see Ron Grant's son, Nigel, is part of the consortium.
