Tim Reynolds Passes 3000 Bears Runs

Tim takes PGs to a major win over Randy Petes

Tim Reynolds brought up his 3,000th run for the club in the Poidevin-Gray side’s round 5 victory over Mosman.

Tim joined the club’s Green Shield side aged 14 and experienced immediate success, helping the side to the 2014/15 finals. Tim quickly ascended the grades however he suffered a major knee injury between his second and third seasons at the club.

Tim returned in top form in 2017/18, claiming first grade cap number 657 aged only 16. The week after his debut, he was an integral part of the NSW Metro squad that claimed the U17 national championship – his performances highlighted by an innings of 103 against Victoria Country. Tim moved between 1s and 2s over the remainder of that season, however he underlined his potential with an undefeated 138 in second grade to set up a thumping victory over Fairfield-Liverpool.

In 2019/20 Tim made a first grade spot his own, collecting 375 runs at 34.09, including top-scoring with 92 to facilitate an outright victory over Hawkesbury. That same season Tim was also a member of the NSW Metro squad that claimed the U19 national championship.

This season is shaping as Tim’s finest yet. In first grade he has regularly made major contributions, including 74 in a partnership of 186 with Justin Avendano against UNSW, and scores of 91 and 78 not out in partnerships of 204 and 105 with Tom Jagot against St George and Manly respectively.

Tim’s strong first grade form (327 runs at over 40) pales in comparison to his run-scoring in Poidevin-Gray Shield, where he has belted 277 runs at an average of 92. Tim looms as a major weapon for the PGs side as they look to go one better than last year’s runner-up finish.
