On 1st March 2013,
Norwich City announced that they had signed Luton Towns highly-rated
16-year-old goalkeeper Tyler Reading on a two-year scholarship agreement
for an undisclosed fee.
The Conference side confirmed Reading will join the Canaries after
progressing through their youth development scheme.
While it is our ultimate aim to push players all the
way through our development programme, we would never stand in
the way of a player who is offered the opportunity to move on
to a bigger club, said Hatters head of youth operations
Matt Stannard. Obviously, the deal has to be right for
all parties and we as a club would always ensure the welfare and
future development of the child before entering into discussions
with any club. We felt in this instance that this was the right
move for Tyler and Luton Town Football Club.
In September 2013, Reading joined Stevenage. He made his debut
for their Under-18s on 2nd September 2013 in a 2-1 win over Crawley.
He moved to non-league Bedford Town in the autumn of 2015.
