27/02/2020 READING FC FORMER PLAYERS - EVENING WITH STEVE COPPELL

Steve Coppell became a household name in his playing days. After beginning his career with Tranmere Rovers in 1973, he spent eight years with Manchester United where he made 322 appearances, scoring 53 goals. He went on to represent his country, playing for England 42 times over 6 years from 1977 and scoring 7 times. However, it was as a manager that Coppell will be instantly and fondly remembered by Reading fans. Steve could well be considered the most successful manager in the history of Reading Football Club. That is a dramatic statement, but well earnt after Steve took the Royals into the top tier of English football for the first time in club history in 2006. The Royals accumulated a record breaking 106 points in the process, ending the season with just two defeats. That record still stands to this day as no football league club manager has been able to repeat Coppell's remarkable feat. As a result, Coppell was voted manager of the season by the League Managers Association. Coppell received the award again the following season after guiding Reading to an unexpected eighth placed finish, the club's highest placing in their history, and narrowly missing out on European qualification. There are very few people with such an outstanding record as both a player and manager and he is sure to provide a fascinating insight to Reading fans on 27 February. This is a great opportunity to meet, and put your questions to, the man behind Reading's most successful spell of all time. The event seems certain to sell out, so please book early online on our events page. The evening will be hosted by former Royals defender, now BBC Berkshire sports presenter, Ady Williams.
