Friday 3rd August. 7:00 p.m. for a prompt 8:00 p.m. start. And your starter for 10. Q: How many Quizzes is Reed CC holding in 2018? A: Two. Yes, two. The first was in June with veteran Quizmaster Matt Bowles asking the questions. Now, a new look and a new variety of teasers with Sam Greaves taking the chair. Will last time’s winning team, “Not All Legless”, be going for the double? Not far behind, Super Best Friends came second equal with We don’t know - (yes, we do know; the team’s name was We Don’t Know)! Book early - see phone numbers for Sam and Tom.
Our accommodating Chairman, Stuart Smith, has thoughtfully brought forward the start time to 1100hrs so that players, families, friends and supporters would be able to watch the Men's Tennis Final at Wimbledon on TV during the afternoon, and incidentally the Final of the (men's???) Soccer World Cup too!
Remember to make a note that our Musical Evening will be held in the Howard Marshall Pavilion at Reed Cricket Club on Saturday 21st July.

As we approach the beginning of another cricket season, a date for you to note is Sunday 6th May. That is when Reed Cricket Club officially names its Clubhouse the Howard Marshall Pavilion. During the afternoon, a Reed XI will play a match versus a Howard Marshall XI starting at 1400hrs followed by a short naming ceremony at approximately 1830hrs. There will be a Hog Roast afterwards. We would like to see as many past & present members, their families and friends as possible during the day. Please keep the date free. We passed the 40th anniversary of the original opening of the Clubhouse last year. Although in use prior to the official opening, Reed played an Invitational XI made up of cricketers from cricket clubs in the Royston and surrounding district. The match was played on the 5th June 1977 and the "cutting of the ribbon" ceremony was performed by Mrs Joy Reffell. She was the wife of Norman Reffell, a prominent member of the Club. The photographs show the combined teams and along with the history of the construction of the Clubhouse these are displayed inside the lounge area. Images of the relevant pages form the scorebook are also attached. I appreciate they may be faded because they are written in pencil but here is a brief summary. It was an All-Day match. Fred Flack (9) and David Ford (6) opened the batting. John Raven top-scored with 33 and Peter King made 11. Neville Bird at number 5 scored 12 followed by useful contributions of 26 by Steve Dunn and 24 by Clive Collins. Number 8 was Peter Lawrence who was out for 4 then Howard Marshall hit 3 boundaries in his 19. [...]
