Heath started at the crease first but it wasn’t long before Reed’s Lewis Fitzgerald (5.3-1-26-3) got into his stride and he made the breakthrough with only the fourth ball of the match after a fine catch from wicketkeeper Marcus J.E. Baker.
Fitzgerald then took his second wicket with a fine delivery that decimated the stumps in his next over before going on to get a third later in the innings.
Under-15 bowler Tom Walshingham also impressed with figures of (7-4-0-5).
First change bowlers Rupert Martin (6-0-14-0) and Chris Peckett (6-1-22-2) continued in the same form with Peckett claiming two wickets.
Spinner Matt Bowles (5-0-7-3) looked dangerous and was rewarded with three further wickets before Pete Tidey produced a fantastic catch off his own delivery.
