player bio


















Experienced wide midfielder who joined the Pitmen in March 2019 from near neighbours Chasetown

A former trainee at Macclesfield Town, Stafford-born Reid came through the Silkmen's youth system to sign his first professional contract with the club in the summer of 2007. Over the next four seasons, Reid became a fixture in the Macclesfield team, going on to make just over 150 appearances for the Moss Rose club up until his release in the summer of 2011


After spending time on trial at fellow League Two side Morecambe in the summer of 2011, Reid agreed a permanent deal with the Shrimpers in July 2011 and played regularly for the club over the next two seasons as Morecambe finished fifteenth and sixteenth respectively


Reid moved into non-league football in February 2013, leaving Morecambe to join Conference North big spenders Brackley Town on a deal until the end of the season. His form for the Northants side saw him clinch a deal for the following season in the summer fo 2013-2014 for Brackley's Skrill North campaign


Fellow step two side Barrow was Reid's next destination in the summer of 2014, joining the Cumbria side on a one-year deal in July 2014. His season was frustrating, with Reid making only nineteen starts for the Bluebirds as they clinched the league title on the final day of the season. He returned to the Midlands to join league rivals AFC Telford United, joining the Bucks in late July 2015 on a one-year deal. His season at Telford was disrupted almost immediately due to ankle ligament damage sustained in September 2015. He returned in the early part of 2016, but struggled to get back into Rob Smith's side and was released at the end of the season


In the summer of 2016, Reid returned to his home town to link up with newly-promoted Rangers alongside older brother Levi, who had been at Marston Road for three seasons since joining from Gainsborough Trinity. He was in impressive form against the Pitmen in four unbeaten games, scoring the winner at Marston Road in the F.A. Trophy second qualifying round replay in November 2016


Another consistent season in 2017-2018 saw Reid cement his reputation as a fan favourite with a string of fine displays for Neil Kitching's side, but found the 2018-2019 season tough to settle into the side as Rangers once again struggled to keep away from the relegation zone


In February 2019, Reid was allowed to join Evo-Stik Northern League Division One West side Chasetown on a free transfer, making only three appearances for the Scholars before making a return to step three the following month to join the Pitmen ahead of their run-in. Despite having only a few chances to impress, Reid was the team's man of the match in their game at Gainsborough Trinity in his one and only start in five games

In June 2019, after being invited back to the club to take part in pre-season training, Reid agreed a new deal with the club for the forthcoming season
