A right-sided forward, he joined the Cards for a second-spell in the summer of 2022, following his release from League Two side Crawley Town. He previously spent four months with Woking in the 2017/18 season, scoring four times in 18 appearances in a disappointing campaign which ultimately ended in relegation from the National League. His efforts were one of the few highlights of that period, with goals against Gateshead, Hartlepool, Macclesfield, and Torquay.
He began his career with Queens Park Rangers, where he spent close to a decade, graduating from the club’s youth academy in 2015. He remained at Loftus Road until 2018, making six senior appearances, including four in the Premier League, with a full 90 minutes in the 2015 defeat at Leicester City – who would go on to become champions the following season. He had a brief loan spell with League Two side Newport County in 2016, where he made eight appearances.
After his release from QPR in January 2018, he signed for Woking on a deal until the end of the season, scoring his first career goals during his short time at Kingfield. From there, he moved back into the Football League with Crawley Town, following a successful trial. It was the Red Devils who transitioned him from a traditional centre-forward to a right-sided wide player, and he featured 66 times across his first two seasons with the club, scoring eight goals.
Unfortunately, a serious injury saw him miss the entire 2020/21 campaign, as well as the start of the following season. He made his belated comeback last November in the EFL Trophy, but found opportunities limited after such a long period on the sidelines, and was loaned to National League Barnet in February, where he scored three times in 13 games. He was released by Crawley at the end of the season.
He enjoyed a superb start to his second-spell with Woking, scoring nine times in 16 league games, but sadly an untimely injury saw him miss the entire second-half of the season, with his last appearance coming in early December. His efforts in the early part of the season still saw him finish third in the club's goalscoring charts and he was rewarded with a two-year contract extension until the summer of 2025 as a result.
Reece has also tasted success on the international stage, playing for Republic of Ireland at three different age groups, including 11 appearances for the Under-21s between 2015-2018, memorably scoring a hat-trick in a 4-0 win over Israel during European Championship qualifying.
