Born in Kingston upon Thames, London, Reid attended St. Agatha's Catholic Primary School and Richard Challoner School in the same outer London area. He started his career at Millwall, and made his professional debut in the 1997–98 season at the age of 17. He was part of the successful 2000–01 team that gained promotion to the English First Division.

Blackburn Rovers

Reid debuted for Blackburn Rovers on 23 August 2003 as a 76th-minute substitute for Vratislav Greško, but had the misfortune of being dismissed in the 88th minute. He went on to make 19 appearances through the 2003–04 season, though a hamstring injury would rule him out of action for three months during this time. A change of management in September 2004 saw Mark Hughes replace Graeme Souness as Blackburn boss, a move which would also signify a change for Reid. Despite playing the majority of his career as a wide midfielder, Hughes moved Reid to centre midfield for the match against Everton on 6 March 2005. Reid went on to star in a 1–0 victory for Blackburn, creating the winning goal, and has since claimed the central midfield position.
