Reuben Reid joined Exeter City in September 2016 having left Plymouth Argyle after turning down a new contract at Home Park.
The Bristolian striker had started his professional career at Home Park in 2006 and was initially sent out on to several clubs including Torquay United. He left Argyle for Rotherham later moving on to West Bromwich Albion, Oldham and Yeovil with a number of loans along the way. After playing for the club on loan from Yeovil, Reuben was back at Plymouth from 2014 until his move to St James Park.
Reuben had an impressive first season at City netting 14 goals in 41 appearances and leading the line superbly with his hold-up play. He scored his first goal for the Grecians in a 4-1 win over Barnet on October 15 and, arguably his most memorable goal, came in the late comeback against Yeovil Town that saw City score three goals in the last four minutes. He also scored injury-time winners against Mansfield Town and Morecambe as the Grecians successfully pushed for the League Two play-offs.
Reuben signed for Forest Green Rovers on 5 January 2018. He stayed at the New Lawn until the end of the 2018/19 campaign in which Forest Green reached the playoffs. He played 43 games, scoring 13 goals, before signing for Cheltenham Town in June 2019 and Yeovil Town in January 2021. Having featured regularly, Reuben’s contract at Huish Park was extended for another season. By the time he left Yeovil at the end of 2021/22, he had appeared in fifty league matches scoring six times.
At the age of thirty-four Reuben agreed terms with Weston-super-Mare ahead of the 2022/23 season and remained contracted for the following season as the club returned to National League South after winning the Southern League.
