Profile

Wisden obituary
Gilbert Martin Reay, who died in hospital on January 31, aged 80, took 91 wickets for Surrey when available as a tall, well-built amateur fast-medium bowler between 1913 and 1923. He received his county cap in 1920 when, in his best season, he dismissed 42 batsmen for 18.71 runs each, and he represented Gentlemen v Players at The Oval in 1923. Gilly Reay achieved many notable feats for Beddington CC, whom he assisted for 42 years, several as captain, from 1904. A tremendous hitter, he once struck five 6's in an innings of 127.
