Reed gear up for new cricket season

New players wanted ahead of summer campaign

JAMES Heslam will continue to captain the first XI supported by vice-captain and paceman Lee Johnson. The second team captaincy lies with Michael Curtis for another year, while Maseeh Naeem is looking for another promotion with the third XI. Rob Willoughby will take over the reins of the fourth XI after a fine stint by Peter Baker.

First Team all-rounder Tom Greaves has been installed as the new Sunday XI captain and Stuart Smith is taking up the midweek team’s captaincy looking to retain the Keatley Cup after last year’s success.

Despite a successful season last year, with Australian opening batsman Liam Mcechnie returning to Australia and a few other players either injured or on long term holidays, Reed are keen to strengthen particularly in the batting department and would be interested to hear from any players living in the local area keen to enjoy playing competitive league cricket for any of their sides.

Reed also runs a successful junior section and are again looking for new colts interested in joining a cricket club. They will be running sides in Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire junior leagues at U11, U13 and U15 level.

Reed are currently having winter nets (including colts) and are keen to welcome new players of all abilities to come along and hopefully join up for the new season. Adult nets are being held at The Knights Templar Sports Centre in Baldock.

For more information about the nets or joining Reed Cricket Club, please telephone James Heslam on 07763 681216 or Cilla Robertson (Colts) on 01763 848835.
