Tom Reason played in nine Minor County matches for Glamorgan either side of the Great War, besides appearing during 1923 in their County Championship match against Somerset at Taunton.

A doctor by profession, Tom had made his debut for the Welsh county in the closing games of the 1914 season, against Monmouthshire at Newport and Surrey 2nd XI at the Arms Park, with the promising batsman from Neath making a duck in his only innings in the match at Cardiff.

After re-appearing in Minor County matches during 1920, Tom focused on his medical duties at his practice in Skewen, but he was delighted to help out the county during 1923 when others were unavailable.

His younger brother David also played for Gamorgan.
