1925 – Positive Approach to Cricket

Radlett certainly played positive cricket in the mid ’20s. Under Reid in 1925, the first XI played 16, won six, lost eight; the second XI played 18, won eight, lost nine.

Renowned for his delicate late cut, Reid topped the batting and as a leg-spin and googly bowler topped the bowling. So keen was he that he built a concrete net at his home and offered use of it to Club members, although few took him up on this.
