Royals and Racers FA Youth cup 3rd round draw done today- Reading U18`s home to Aston Villa U 18`s- not sure why they have done the draw now as 9 matches are still to be played from round 1 !!!!!

Match arranged for Friday December 11th KO 7pm at the Madejski stadium.

“You have to play at the first team’s ground, even if it is shut”.

Still, something to look forward to.

Interesting that several player shows who were on the bench on Wednesday played in this. Are they going to be involved tomorrow, 24 hours after a match and 2 6 hour coach journeys (can’t imagine we fly the u23 squad to games do we ?)

Could well be but with 9 subs will be a longshot if they are named they will get on.

Would be pointless having them really then, may as well try and make do with a couple fewer bench warmers....
I think if you are U18 you aren’t allowed to play twice in 24 hours but that wouldn’t impact many of them.

Yeah a little surprising Tetek was allowed to play. But maybe some more of the senior players are available so we don’t need them?

Onen with 3 in 3 since he joined I think.

Can see him being involved with the first team fairly regularly this year.

Seems that his signing slipped under the radar. Jayden Onen is a Ugandan 19 year old who last played for Brentford and before that Arsenal and Brighton. I cannot find any mention of his signing on the RFC website or the Academy social media but he joined in September i believe, but Jayden posted a picture of him signing his contract on November 6th. He has been away with the Ugandan cranes national team at a training camp in Dubai. He made his Reading U 23 debut in the 1st league match of the season away at Norwich on September 14th.

Onen looked decent yesterday from the brief clips of the game on twitter, can def see him getting first team game time during this congested spell of games

Does anyone know what has happened to Thierry Nevers our highly rated 18 year old winger who has not featured at all this season- he is under contract until the summer of 2021.

Not sure- there was a tweet from Thierry during the transfer window which was somewhat cryptic.
