READING FANS TOP OF THE LEAGUE FOR STYLE.

Byline: By ANDY LINES

FANS of unfashionable Reading have scored a win... by being voted Britain's most stylish football supporters.

They came top of the league in a survey for their appreciation of wine and love of trips to the theatre.

Reading, whose nickname is fittingly the Royals, also have the fewest skinhead fans and they prefer a cultural weekend away in Europe over a trip to Butlins.

Pollsters asked 5,000 fans up and down the country about fashion, hairstyle, nights out and holidays.

Reading supporters were the style champions in the Brylcreem survey, followed by Northampton, Southampton and Chelsea.

Bottom of the league were Blackburn and Wigan, half of whose fans said drinking lager was "more sophisticated" than quaffing wine.

And Spurs fans reckon their ultimate night out is watching lap dancers at Spearmint Rhino.

Reading Supporters' Trust spokesman John Keen said: "The results do not surprise me as we are a stylish bunch."

THE OTHER 'HIGHLIGHTS'

29% of Aston Villa fans think Adidas more stylish than Armani.

30% of Arsenal fans are skinheads.

45% of Wigan fans say lager's more sophisticated than wine.

37% of Spurs fans love a night at Spearmint Rhino but Reading (18%) chose the theatre.

45% of Bolton fans prefer cultural European city breaks.
