Reed Cricket Club will be looking to mirror their heroics of five years ago as they head to the home of cricket to compete in the Watson’s National Village Cup at the weekend – where they are set to take on the defending champions.
On Sunday the club will journey to the historic Lord’s cricket ground in St John’s Wood, north-west London - with its iconic pavilion, famous slope and statue of the legendary WG Grace – to play cup holders Sessay CC from Yorkshire in the final of the prestigious village competition.
The visit comes five years on from the glorious September day when the Royston-based club beat five-time finalists Woodhouse Grange by six wickets in the final.
But they face stiff competition from the Tykes based between York and Thirsk, near to the famous Kilburn White Horse which features prominently on the club badge.
However Reed will contain no fewer than eight players that have progressed from their successful colts’ system.
