How are you getting to Wembley?

I'm probably going to do the GWR train to Paddington, then change for the Bakerloo / London overground.

Reading FC should get in touch with Wealdstone FC. Wealdstone have a decent sized car park and bar just a short walk from Ruislip tube station which is just a 20 minute ride to Wembley Stadium.

The Stones have welcomed Coventry City, Manchester City, Villa among others to Grosvenor Vale to take advantage of the non league facilities on their big days out at Wembley. Its good revenue for the Stones and it makes getting to Wembley a doddle for supporters. It also gives you a place to eat and drink pre and post match as well.

Wealdstone know how to throw a party for the winners.

Would be funny if Ian Royal offers someone a lift and therefore makes his poll option actually valid

I appreciate that Top Flight was trying to be helpful in the above post but it would have been better if he had researched the situation first as the facility has already been offered to supporters of Huddersfield Town. It has usually been the practice to offer it to the club furthest from Wembley.

Therefore this will obviously not be an option available to Reading fans on the day!
