Luis Reece made an immediate impact when he opened the innings for Lancashire in the Championship in 2013, averaging more than 55 and being named as the county's Young Player of the Year as they won promotion from the Second Division. Seven of his fifties came in successive innings. A rise in standards, though, proved more difficult for him to combat and he failed to retain his place as his average took a battering. A knee injury has slowed his progress with the ball.
Reece joined the Lancashire Academy in 2008, having made appearances for the Second XI as a 17-year-old the previous year, but it was across the Pennines in Leeds in 2012 that he gave notice of the other component of his game - an ability to bowl left-arm medium pace to considerable effect - when he took 7 for 21 for Leeds/Bradford MCCU in a three-day friendly against Sussex, at one time having figures of 5 for 0 from five overs.
Taunton-born Reece also played in two first-class matches for Leeds/Bradford UCCE, taking wickets against Surrey at The Oval and Yorkshire at Headingley, where he also demonstrated his technical quality as a left-hand batsman with scores of 40 and 60. Spells for the Unicorns in the county 40-over competition in 2011 and 2012, also helped him reawaken Lancashire's interest. After also averaging 64.60 with the bat for Lancashire's Second XI he signed a professional contract for 2013. Prior to the 2014 season he represented MCC in Abu Dhabi.
