Blake Reed

Melville CC 1st grade opening batsman & pace bowler

Blake is a talented all-rounder with an experienced approach to the game. Having played senior cricket since the age of 16, Blake understands what it takes for young cricketers to be successful. Blake represented Western Australia in underage national carnivals and is currently the opening batsman and a seam bowler for Melville CC 1st grade in the WACA Premier Competition.

“As an aspiring young cricketer myself, I’m seeing more and more how important it is to be prepared both physically and mentally to perform at your best. I feel like I can relate to other young players dealing with outside pressures whilst also trying to progress your own game. Being a top order player, I firmly believe that the mental side of the game combined with a sound technique is the absolute key to bat for long periods of time to score big runs. I thoroughly enjoy seeing players grind through tough periods against good bowling and then go on to get a score. I am really enjoying mentoring other young cricketers who are aspiring to become the best they can be.”
