Wednesday evenings at the Clubhouse + Indoor net dates (Seniors and Colts)

A reminder that Reed CC’s Howard Marshall Pavilion is open for business every Wednesday evening from 1930hrs onwards in the winter months. Come and have a chat, put the world to rights, watch soccer on the TV, throw a dart or two (or three!), play pool, cards or table skittles or simply enjoy the comfortable surroundings in the lounge bar. Bottled beers, lagers and ciders are on sale at “winter prices” (meaning cheaper than normal); plus soft drinks and nibbles such as crisps and peanuts, some, (I am reliably informed), at even further reduced prices. Every Wednesday evening through to April – when the cricket should begin outdoors with some friendlies (and beer prices go up)! Fixtures have been added to the website calendar. The dates of the Village Cup Rounds are also included although the draw is not expected to take place until mid-February. Click on “View All Events” on the right of this homepage on the RCC website then choose the months you want to look at. Friendlies will begin on 18th April, Reed host a Group Final of the Herts T20 on 2nd May, the 1st Round of the Village Cup is on 3rd May, then the Herts League commences on Saturday the 9th May. The league season will end on 5th September. Before all that, there are Indoor Nets for senior players, (i.e., 16 years and older), at Burloes Farm, Royston on every Sunday in March (1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th) plus two sessions at Melbourn Village College on Mondays 16th and 30th March - see the "Events" for times. A fee of £5 per person per session will be charged. For Under 12 and Non-County Under 15 Colts, there [...]

Life Memberships for Peter Lawrence and Steve Dunn

Life Membership of the Cricket Club was conferred on Peter Lawrence and Steve Dunn at the recent AGM. Peter was a founder member of the Club and has a long playing history. He has been a Club member for 63 years. Off the field in years past Peter, in his role as Chairman of Reed Parish Council, helped smooth the relationship between Club and Council, and his engineering background also made him indispensable at the time when the Club was establishing itself. Steve is a Past-President and former Club Captain, one of only two people to have held both positions. Steve was instrumental in setting-up the Colts section in the 1970s and was one of the finest wicket-keepers in the county. In latter years he had been willing to provide one-to-one wicket-keeping coaching. Steve’s friendly approach over a drink in the bar was often the first contact many prospective new playing members had with the Club, a tactic that paid off when they decided to join RCC. Both Peter's and Steve’s association continues as two of the Club’s Trustees. In recommending these Life Memberships, the Committee recognised that the Club would not be where it is now without their contributions over the years. Peter and Steve now join a very select band of Life Members comprising Clive Collins, Rosemary Collins, Keith Collins, Roger Bowcock and Andrew Emms. Peter G. Baker. Honorary Secretary, Reed CC 14th December 2019.

Photographs from Lord’s – Victory Roll!

Thanks to "Baz" Curtis who has been busy and has created Photograph Galleries for the 2019 season. These feature photos of the NVC Semi-Final versus Sarisbury Athletic taken by Rob Furber and yours truly; the Village Cup Final at Lord's from Sarah Williams, the official MCC Photographer; then dozens more taken by Ann and Paul Garrott at Lord's, (including the Spitfire and Hurricane that flew over the ground during the match). Ann and Paul then took photographs at the Club Dinner at the Old Bull Inn in November. Chris Jackson captured some interesting images of the Green by using a drone camera just before 10 pitches were dug-up and relaid in September. To view all these photographs go to the heading "Galleries" on this Homepage then choose "2019 Photo Album" - and of course, you could always revive old memories by opening all the Albums from previous years too. Enjoy! PGB, Hon. Sec.
