Reading have handed academy midfielder Lawson D'Ath a professional deal which will keep him at the club until 2013.
The promising 18-year-old has hit an impressive 17 goals in his last 22 appearances for the Royals' Under-18s and reserve sides.
Director of football Nick Hammond told the club's official website: "We're delighted to have got this done, he is a very talented boy and, as his record shows, he scores goals from midfield."
