Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Born in Chester, Cheshire, Reed began his career in the Wrexham youth system at the age of 16 in 2003.[2] He signed his first professional contract with the club on 20 August 2004.[1] He made his first team debut as a 79th minute substitute in a 4–1 defeat at Wycombe Wanderers on 27 September 2005.[3] He joined Glentoran on loan until the end of the 2005–06 season in January 2006 and made five appearances for the Irish Premier League side.[4] After returning to Wrexham, manager Denis Smith said "While it was not easy for him with a change of manager so early in his spell at Glentoran, he knuckled down" and in June signed his professional contract with the club.[5] Reed joined Northern Premier League First Division team Colwyn Bay on an initial one-month on 28 October,[6] making his debut the following day in a 1–0 victory over Alsager Town.[7] His first goal for the club came against Goole in November and having scored four goals in five appearances he returned to Wrexham on 1 January 2007.[8][9][10]

Reed signed for Welsh Premier League club Aberystwyth Town on a four-month loan until January 2008 in August 2007.[11] He finished the loan with 20 appearances and nine goals in the league and joined Conference North team Tamworth on a one-month loan in January 2008.[12][13] He made his debut in a 1–0 victory at Blyth Spartans in the FA Trophy second round on 12 January and his first goal came in a 2–1 victory over Hyde United on 26 January.[14] He extended the loan on 12 February 2008 for second month until March 2008.[15] Reed returned to Wrexham on 12 March after the completion of a two-month loan,[16] which he completed with eight appearances and one goal.[14]

Welsh Premier League[edit]

Wrexham released Reed on 6 May 2008 following the club's relegation to the Conference Premier,[17] and after a trial with The New Saints he joined Welsh Premier League side Rhyl one a one-year contract on 1 July.[18][19][20] He scored 13 times in 31 league appearances as Rhyl won the Welsh Premier League title, before leaving at the end of the 2008–09 season.[2][12] After an attempt to win a contract at a Major League Soccer club in the United States, Reed decided to sign for Bangor City in August 2009.[20] He was named Welsh Premier League Player of the Month for March 2010, having scored seven goals in six matches, at the time placing him as the league's top goalscorer.[21] He scored the second goal in the Welsh Cup Final against Port Talbot Town on 1 May, which Bangor went on to win 3–2.[22] Reed finished the 2009–10 season with 30 goals in 42 appearances,[23] finishing second to Rhys Griffiths in the Welsh Premier League goalscoring charts with 24 goals.[24] Reed joined Australian Victorian Premier League side Dandenong Thunder in May on loan for the duration of the summer break in the Welsh Premier League,[25] scoring five goals in seven appearances before returning to Bangor in August.[8][26] He signed a new contract with Bangor in September 2010, which contracted him to the club until June 2013.[27]

York City[edit]

Conference Premier side York City made a five-figure bid for Reed in November 2010, but this was rejected by Bangor.[28] He signed for York on 6 January 2011 for an undisclosed fee, which set a new record for the highest fee received by Bangor, on a two-and-half-year contract.[29][30] Prior to signing for York, he had scored 18 goals in 19 appearances for Bangor during the 2010–11 season,[31] with 17 league goals making him the top goalscorer in the Welsh Premier League.[32] Reed made his debut as an 85th minute substitute in a 2–0 defeat at Premier League club Bolton Wanderers in the FA Cup third round on 8 January.[33] This was followed by his first start and home debut in a 1–0 victory over Grimsby Town on 11 January.[34] He scored his first goal for the club with the opening goal in a 2–1 victory over Forest Green Rovers on 22 January.[35] He scored two goals in one game for the first time for York with both goals of a 2–1 victory over Mansfield Town on 15 March.[36] Reed finished the season with nine goals in 24 appearances for York.[37]

Reed playing for York City in 2011

His first appearance of the 2011–12 season came as an 82nd minute substitute in a 3–1 victory over Barrow on 16 August 2011, and in his sixth appearance of the season, all of which were as a substitute, he scored an 88th minute winner with the only goal of a 1–0 victory over Bath City on 13 September.[38] Reed entered the 2012 FA Trophy Final as a 90th minute substitute, with York beating Newport County 2–0 at Wembley on 12 May 2012.[38] Eight days later he played in the 2–1 victory over Luton in the 2012 Conference Premier play-off Final at Wembley as a 78th minute substitute, a result that meant the club returned to the Football League after an eight-year absence with promotion to League Two.[38]

Reed scored his first goal of the 2012–13 season with the opening goal of a 1–1 home draw with AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup first round on 3 November 2012.[39] He was loaned to Conference Premier side Cambridge United for the rest of the season on 11 February 2013.[40] He made his debut the following day in Cambridge's 3–0 home defeat to Alfreton Town.[39] He was recalled early from the loan by York on 11 March 2013,[41] having made seven appearances for Cambridge.[39] Reed made three substitute outings after returning, meaning he finished the season with 19 appearances and 4 goals for York.[39] He was released by York on 30 April 2013.[42]

Chester and South Melbourne[edit]

Reed signed for his hometown club, newly promoted Conference Premier side Chester, on a one-year contract on 4 July 2013.[43][44] He signed for South Melbourne of the National Premier Leagues Victoria in Australia on 12 March 2014.[45]

The New Saints[edit]

Reed signed for The New Saints on 7 November 2015 despite not being able to play until January. He scored his first goal for the club as a half time substitute against Prestatyn Town.

International career[edit]

In November 2009, Reed made his debut for the Wales Semi-Pro team in a 2–2 draw with Northern Ireland,[46] which made him the second player to feature for a Welsh national team under the "education eligibility" ruling.[2]

Personal life[edit]

Reed was living in Chester with his parents until joining York City, when he and his partner moved to a house in York.[47]
