Little recalls some of his time at Reading

Little recalls some of his time at Reading

Most Reading fans would crave to Glen Little in his prime back - he has talked about his tenure with the Royals.

The 37-year old was recently released by Wrexham last month, but maintains he wants to carry on playing football. Little spent nearly six seasons at the Madejski Stadium and was a part of the squad that was the most successful in Reading's history.

Speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph, Little said: 'It`s funny how things work out. Steve Coppell was my hero when I was growing up, I loved watching him play. He was the manager at Crystal Palace when I was coming through the youth system and then he was manager at Reading as well. My one regret is that I didn`t get to the Premier League sooner.'

'We deserved to get in the play-offs a couple of times at Burnley but it never quite happened. It was a great opportunity to play at the top level with Reading and I was playing the best football of my career but I started to struggle with a bit of an Achilles problem and that was a bad time for me.'


Kind words from Glen about his time here, I'm sure all of the 2005/06 squad would echo similar compliments. It's rare these days that you see winger's like Little, who were not blessed with immense pace, but clever techincal skill. I hope he finds another club soon!
