Glory for Reed in Village Final

Reed Cricket Club of Hertfordshire won the Yorkshire Tea Village Cup Final at Lord's with a six-wicket defeat of North Yorkshire's Woodhouse Grange.

A superb 51 from just 49 balls from Tom Greaves helped Reed chase down the target of 185 set by five-time finalists Woodhouse Grange in their 40 overs.

Greaves was dismissed just one delivery after bringing up his half-century, but Reed were guided home with 16 balls to spare thanks to 37 from Chris Jackson and an unbeaten 22 from Stuart Smith.

Greaves had earlier taken 2/22 with the ball from nine overs, while Mitchell Cooper recorded figures of 3/39 to help the Herts side restrict their opponents to a below-par total.

Tom Young top-scored with 42 and, together with fellow youngster Chris Suddaby, helped his side recover from a precarious position at 106/6 though, to give Woodhouse Grange a chance.

However, Reed were always ahead of the game in their response - thanks largely to Greaves' excellent knock at number three - and were crowned champions when Cooper struck the winning runs.
