Floyd Lamonte Reifer (born 23 July 1972) is a Barbadian cricketer. He is a left-handed middle-order batsman and a right-arm medium pace bowler.

Reifer has played six Tests and eight One Day Internationals for the West Indies cricket team, spread over a home tour against Sri Lanka in 1997 and the 2009 edition of the ICC Champions trophy.

Ten years after playing his fourth Test match, Reifer was recalled to play for the West Indies on 9 July 2009. He captained an understrength team fielded by the West Indies against Bangladesh; the 15-man squad included nine uncapped players and seven West Indies players made their Test debut in the 1st Test which was played at Kingstown, St Vincent on 9–13 July 2009. The first XI had made themselves unavailable due to a pay dispute with the West Indies Cricket Board.[1] The West Indies went on to lose the two Test series 2–0 and the three match One Day International series 3–0.[2]

In 2002 Reifer played as an overseas professional for Scottish club side Ferguslie. He also played three matches for the Scottish Saltires as an overseas player in 2004. Of his 145 first-class matches, 85 have been for Barbados,[3] with whom he has won six Carib Beer Cup titles.

Coaching career[edit]

He was appointed head coach of the newly formed cricket team called Combined Campuses & Colleges in 2009. He plays there as player-cum-coach. He is their leading run scorer in first-class matches.
