The young lad came down South, accompanied by his cat, carrying a small loaf wrapped in a red hanky on a stick, to show us all how the game should be played. Often wagging the tail of the 2nd or 3rd team with some hefty boundaries, Andy is a cheerful team player who looks spookily like the baby faced Andrew Strauss He is always one of the first in the bar for some soft southern ale.
One of few spin bowlers that can take the wicket keepers head off with his arm ball. When the ball occasionally pitches, Andy can tie up many batsman, applying much needed pressure. He also often gets in amongst the wickets, sometimes more often than the faster bowlers. In 2010/11 Andy converted to a seam up bowler with great effect and we look forward to more of the same in 2018 when Andy will once again be captaining the 3rd XI. Once again they will threaten promotion early on in the season, then plummet to the relegation zone, and eventually end up in mid-table mediocrity.... or will they !
965 runs at 9.4 (including two half-centuries)
