REED travelled to Flitwick on Saturday in need of a victory to maintain their promotion push but could only manage a draw.

Bernie Morss won the toss and elected to bat despite the pitch looking lush after a week of showers and his team lost opener Phil Frenay early as he was yorked for 3.

This brought the in-form Chris Jackson to the crease and he and James Heslam looked to rebuild the innings.

Heslam looked in ominous form too and the pair looked set for big scores until Jackson was caught at point for a well made 53, leaving Reed on 101-2.

Tom Greaves was next in but he was adjudged caught behind for 0 and Marcus Martin was also out for the low score of 4.

Next in was Richard Johnson but by the time he was out for 15 Reed had also lost Heslam for a superb 63.

Some lusty blows from Lee Johnson (16) and quick running between the wickets from Si Jackson helped Reed record a score of 188 all out.

Reed started slowly with both Lee Johnson (5-0-29-0) and Wilson (5-0-21-0) struggling, but with the introduction of Morss (19-4-59-6) and Young (18-3-68-3) Reed were soon on the attack as Morss took out both openers.

Flitwick eventually made it to 184-9, setting up a tense final ball from which Reed needed a single wicket and Flitwick needed a boundary to win, but with the field spread the ball was defended and both teams shared the spoils.

Reed host Bishop's Stortford II next weekend up at the Green.
