Naylor: ‘We see Reid as a centre at Oldham’

Oldham Roughyeds head coach Scott Naylor thinks utility-man Matt Reid will be a great centre for the club.

The 25-year-old can starred at left centre in Oldham’s 28-24 victory over Rochdale Hornets to claim the Law Cup last week. He also won the Oldham RL Heritage Trophy as the Law Cup man of the match.

Captain of Coventry Bears last year, Reid play in the second-row or at loose forward but he prefers centre and it’s a good fit, because that’s exactly where Naylor sees him playing for the Roughyeds in League 1.

Naylor said: “He played in a few positions at Coventry but we see him primarily as a centre which is his favourite position anyway.

“There are not a lot of centres around these days so it’s good to come across a lad who is keen to learn as much about centre play as he can.

“Coming to Oldham will be a step up for him. We’ll teach him everything we possibly can and strive to make him a quality lad.”
