Lists of matches and more detailed statistics

Carlton Reece was the main rival to Clifford McWatt for the wicketkeeper job for Guyana after World War II. He was generally acknowledged to have an edge over McWatt in batting, while the reverse was true in their wicket-keeping. The fact that both men often played together on the same team for Guyana suggests that they were highly valued players and that the competition must have been very keen when one replaced the other.

Reece and McWatt appeared together, for example, in two matches against Barbados during September/October 1944. In the next two matches, however, against Trinidad at Bourda in October 1945, Reece played as wicket-keeper and opening batsman while McWatt was in England, serving with the Royal Air Force.
