Full Members' Cup
When English clubs were banned from Europe in 1985, two new competitions were organised to fill the void. The ScreenSport Super Cup lasted only one season, being contested by those clubs that had qualified for Europe. The second competition, the Full Members' Cup (FMC), was a counterpart to the Associate Members' Cup, open to clubs from the old First and Second Divisions (the Full Members) of the Football League, although many of the bigger teams never entered. It was sponsored at various times by Simod (1987-89) and Zenith Data Systems (1989-92), but did not survive the setting up of the Premier League in 1992.
Reading's win came in the 1987-88 Simod Cup, when despite struggling in the Second Division, they saw off four First Division sides on the way to the final, and then beat a very good Luton side 4-1 at Wembley in front of a crowd of 61,740. Relegation meant that they were unable to defend their title, but the Simod Cup itself now resides in their trophy cabinet.
