JAMIE REED is rolling back the years at Cefn Druids - even without his trusty pre-match snack.

Reed has been in red-hot form since arriving at The Rock last month, the former Wrexham and Chester attacker scoring six times in three outings in all competitions - the latest a two-goal blitz in a 3-2 win at Airbus on Friday.

And that means the Druids’ fans have been able to see the ‘Reedy Roll’ plenty of times.

“It started and now I feel that every time I score I have to do it,” said Reed.

“It’s the ‘Reedy Roll’. It started because I used to have a sausage roll before a game and I’d score.

“I’ve stopped eating the sausage roll, but I still do the roll!”

The celebration is nothing more than a bit of fun for the 32-year-old, but it shows just how much he’s relishing playing the game after a difficult period, which included a serious Achilles injury.

“I’m enjoying my football,” declared Reed. “If you’d have asked me two or three years ago I might not have said that.

“I had a bad injury and that changed my mentality. I’ve come back into it over the last 12 months and it’s great to be out there.”

Since signing for Druids, Reed has been involved in all seven of the club’s goals, scoring six and creating the other for strike partner James Davies.

“It’s just nice to be on the scoresheet,” said a modest Reed. “I’m getting to do what I like doing, and that’s essentially goal-hanging - standing in the box and putting the ball in the net.

“I’ve got good runners around me, which obviously helps, in James Davies, Remi Howarth and Joe Faux - they are all quick lads who give me the opportunity to get in the positions to finish.

“I can’t complain about that.”

Reed scored either side of Davies’ header as Druids battled to a 3-2 success at Airbus, who were reduced to 10-men early on after Steve Tomassen saw red.

“We made hard work of it, but we came for three points and three points are what we got,” said Reed. “I think we bossed the game from start to finish. They troubled us with long balls and put pressure on us in our own box, but apart from that, I think we were pretty comfortable throughout.

“They went down to 10-men early and that makes a big difference.”

Victory for Druids means the Ancients will head into a new era on a winning note with Stuart Gelling due to start life as the club’s new head coach today.

Gelling, who was in attendance as Druids battled their way to three points, has made an early impression on Reed and Co.

“We met him on Wednesday and he’s fitted in with the team,” said Reed, who was part of team bonding exercise on Saturday.

“Obviously, it will be interesting to see how he will push us forward. From what I’ve heard he’s got good ideas, so I’m looking forward to seeing where he can take us.”

Seventh placed Cardiff Met remain ahead of Druids on goal difference after beating Aberystwyth 3-1. Eliot Evans scored twice and Will Evans added the other for Met, with Touray Sisay reduced the arrears for Aber, who had goalkeeper Connor Roberts sent-off.
