Reed Cricket Club’s captain Tom Greaves sees no reason why they cannot make an impact in all competitions this season.
The two-time winners of the National Village Cup always have their eyes set on a return to Lords but the skipper believes his 2019 squad is more than capable of producing the goods in the Saracens Herts Cricket League Championship Division as well.
He said: “As always we will be fielding as strong a side as possible this year and although we haven’t signed any new players, I believe the availability is looking very good.”
The Blacksmith’s Lane-based club will run three sides in the SHCL and Greaves says there is a buzz about the whole squad.
He said: “Winter nets have gone down very well and the guys are looking forward to getting stuck into it.
“We have retained all of our players over the winter, and with a couple of job changes, some of our members that only played a handful of games are now looking forward to playing a full season.
“Young Rob Lankaster has taken up the vice captaincy role this year, he had a good season last year with out making big runs.
