Sec, Reed CC. ================================================================================= Tom Greaves’s story. Hi All, As many of you will know, I’m not much of an athlete, however, in a moment of madness I applied for the London marathon and much to my surprise I got in!! This will be a hell of a challenge for me, as previously the most I’ve run in any one single effort is about a mile. So to make my efforts worthwhile I’ve decided to run for the Matt Hampson Foundation charity. As an emerging talent in the world of rugby, Matt Hampson’s world was rocked by a serious spinal injury sustained while training with England U21s.The shock would last months, the impact forever. Paralysed from the neck down Matt faced the toughest challenge of his life. Drawing on the passion, grit and steely determination that defined him as a player, Matt saw his accident not as an end, but as a new beginning. Through the Matt Hampson Foundation, Matt offers hope and inspiration to young people with similar injuries, sharing his experiences and devoting his life to raising vital funds for those in need of support. Please join me in supporting the Foundation by giving anything you can. Thank you, Tom. https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-display/showROFundraiserPage?userUrl=TomGreaves4&pageUrl=1 ================================================================================= Matt Giblin’s story. I've wanted to run a marathon for a few years now, and seeing as it might be something I'll only ever do once, I was really keen [...]
A reminder that the Reed CC's Howard Marshall Pavilion is open for business every Wednesday evening from 1930hrs onwards. Come and have a chat, put the world to rights, watch soccer on the TV, throw a dart or two (or three!), play pool 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 will be added to the website calendar in the coming month once start times are agreed at the League's AGM and after the Village Cup draw which is expected in February. Click on “View All Events” on the right of this page then choose the months you want to look at. Friendlies will begin on 20th April, the 1st Round of the Village Cup on 28th April, then the Herts League on Saturday the 11th May. The season will end in September. PGB, Hon Sec, Reed CC.
Andrew Emms was made a Life Member of Reed Cricket Club during the Sixty-second Annual General Meeting last Thursday. Andrew has worked on a variety of projects at the Club in his time as it has grown from rural village side to one of the finest clubs in Hertfordshire. He continues to volunteer and carry-out many of the manual labouring jobs that need doing as well as organising annual charity luncheons that have raised money for many worthy causes. In his early days he was particularly involved in setting-up the Colts’ structure from which the Club has benefitted with a constant supply of young players coming through to the senior teams. After many years as Committee member and Club Chairman, Andrew remains the figurehead of the Club as its President since 2012. He is a generous socialiser and a very loyal member of the Club and deserves this recognition. He now joins a very select band of Life Members comprising Clive Collins, Rosemary Collins, Keith Collins and Roger Bowcock. Peter G. Baker. Honorary Secretary, Reed CC 2nd December 2018.

Reed Cricket Club Members, Below is information about an event in which you might be interested. This is not a Reed CC event, but as cricket enthusiasts you might wish to know about it. Do not try to book a place through me. Book direct at mikebrearley.eventbrite.co.uk, or by ‘phoning Heffers Bookshop on 01223 463200 or in person at Heffers Bookshop, 20, Trinity Street, Cambridge, CB2 1TY. PGB ************************************************************************* Friday 19th October, 12.30pm at the Queen’s Building, Emmanuel College: An Hour with Mike Brearley. Calling all cricket fans! Legendary England captain Mike Brearley is returning to Cambridge - and Heffers invites you to spend an hour in his company. Mike Brearley OBE was educated at Cambridge, reading Classics and Moral Sciences. He captained England from 1977 to 1980 and was recalled to the captaincy in 1981 for the Ashes Home series - one of their most famous victories. Since retiring from cricket he trained as a psychoanalyst, and is a lecturer on leadership and motivation. He is the author of the best-selling The Art of Captaincy, and has written on cricket and the psychology of sport for the Observer and The Times. In his new collection of essays, On Cricket, Brearley has gone through pieces he has written over the past four decades, elaborating on many of them, cutting or adding, according to his second thoughts presenting to the reader something that is more holistic, more synoptic, from distance and old age. Tickets for the event are priced at £8 in advance or £10 on the door and can be purchased through mikebrearley.eventbrite.co.uk, by calling 01223 463200 or in person at Heffers bookshop.
The time has come for the Cups, Tankards and Trophies to be dusted-off and polished ready to be presented to the 2018 season award winners. Will you be one?
