Jamie Reid is a highly talented young local player who plays anywhere across the centre or right side of the team, but looks at his best in a midfield role. Reid is a tenacious player who isn't frightened to get stuck in, but when given the room can also get forward well and has a keen eye for the pass and his team-mate's movement. Has some clever ball skills and seems to have a very mature football brain which helps him spot tactical things that often pass by even the more experienced heads on the pitch. Also has a fierce shot which has already led to some spectacular goals, perhaps the pick of the bunch the long-range vollied winner against Maidenhead on the opening day of the 2006-07 season. Seems to be settling into a right-back role and is steadily imprvoing his tactical awareness of the position.

Reid in action at Banbury. Reid is arguably the most exciting prospect to have emerged from the City youth team, and that is some considerable praise considering how many good players have graduated through the Tigers under-18s over recent years. Made his City debut at just 16 and had chalked up nearly 50 first team apperances whilst still captain of the most succesful City youth side in the club's history. On leaving youth football received several offers but City boss Tim Harris was eager to keep him at Meadow Park and secured his future by placing him on contract terms which Reid extended in March 2007. Perhaps fittingly Reid can also lay claim to the 100th goal of Tim Harris' tenure with City, scored at Tivereton in April 2007. Reid's main strength is also his main weakness, he has great composure and confidence in his ability as evidenced when taking the crucial last spot-kick to earn City FA Trophy victory over Tiverton on penalties in October 2006. However Reid does still need to control his temperament from time to time, occasionally picking up needless cards for dissent or reckless challenges. If he can blance out that part of his game without losing his edge then Reid has every chance of becoming a very fine player indeed.
