Headlines; Week ending 13th August

SATURDAY: For those of a certain age, the cricket vernacular referred to as a "Michelle", (Shane Warne often says it), means Pfeiffer, (as in the actress, Michelle Pfeiffer). For those of a younger generation, Pfeiffer rhymes with five-for. And there were two Reed players who had "Michelles" today. Alex Kelley took 5 wickets over at West Herts when the 2nds overhauled their target of 210 with 2 wickets intact. Matt Sampson scored 77 and Marcus Martin 42. By the end of the day, the Seconds were in 4th position in Division 4B. Meanwhile at the Freman Oval, the arguably most talented of the Hughes family, father Steve, took an amazing 5 for 23 as Hatfield Hyde were toppled for 122. The Thirds took their time but MJE Baker saw them home with an undefeated fifty when they won by 5 wickets. The 3rds regain 6th position in Division 9A. At a very green Green, thanks to the mid-week rain, the Firsts had a bit of an "After the Lord Mayor's Show" type of game. Batting first, Reed managed to reach a lowly 143 all out after being 50 for 1 at one stage. Ed Wharton made 35 and Sean Tidey 33. But this wasn't enough; Hoddesdon faced a massive amount of "dot balls", but still won comfortably, with overs in hand, by 4 wickets. Consequently, Reed have slipped from first place in the Championship to third as both Hoddesdon and West Herts leapfrogged them. SUNDAY: Club President, Andrew Emms,together with his wife Carol, hosted a lunch in aid of Parkinson's UK with donations directed towards research. Michelle Henderson from the organisation gave a very informative talk about the progress made into research into Parkinson's and [...]

£1200 raised on President’s Day

Dear All, Following the Charity Lunch that took place at Reed Cricket Club on President’s Day  recently, I am pleased to announce that £1200.00 was raised for Parkinson’s UK, and a cheque for that amount will be presented to their representative soon. We were blessed with glorious weather and an entertaining days’ cricket, watched by a large contingent of family and friends, some of whom travelled a considerable distance to attend; many of these people attended the lunch, which was a jolly affair, with wonderful food supplied by Capers Catering. A large array of raffle prizes were on offer, and the generosity of those who supplied them as well as those who purchased tickets,  was a major contributor to our eventual total. Reed Cricket Club members and supporters have proved themselves to have big hearts and deep pockets, and I am so proud of, and grateful to, all who made the day a great success! I aim to repeat the event in 2014 and subsequent years, choosing a different Charity each year; I hope and know I will be able to count on your continued support. Thank you, once again. Andrew Emms President Reed Cricket Club.
