SERVICE TO THE CLUB

Andy is responsible for many of the new initiatives which have moved Endon CC forward in the last few years and, as a hands on Chairman, he has set a wonderful example to a growing band of volunteers that share his goals for the club. Whether he is working behind the bar or slaving over an endless grant application, there is an ever-present enthusiasm that exudes from him. His many years as a senior account manager with Lloyds brings a wealth of experience to the pivotal role he takes.

He has coached and managed junior teams since joining the club as a parent and established girl's cricket at the club very early on in his tenure, after finding the time to become a Level One Coach.

Essential to Endon CC progressing has been gaining clubmark status to give the club access to grant opportunities and Andy successfully led the Endon management team to achieving this goal in 2009.

Andy now heads up an enthusiastic team that seeks to make Endon's playing and training facilities second to none in the area.

As a senior, he top-scored with a 90 against Huncote CC in 1983 and, in the following season, he amassed 720 runs at an average of 45. His performances that year gained him selection to the South Leics League representative side where he scored a 160 runs at an average of 32.

I played twice against ex-England fast-bowler, Mike Hendrick, bowling me for 0 and 4 (although I did hit a four against him)

I also bowled against Gordon Greenidge's brother who hit me for 30 runs in three overs including three of the biggest sixes I ever suffered.

 

FAVOURITE PLACE TO PLAY

I went for trials at Grace Road on a couple of occasions and, of course, as a Leicestershire boy, my Dad took me to see the Leicestershire legends. I witnessed Gower hit 140 against Warwickshire only to see the great Zaheer Abbas hit 155 not out and win the game for the opposition.

Cricket has a long list of wry comedians and Andy surely has a place somewhere near the top of it. Between the jokes, however, is an astute administrator with a voracious appetite for the future. Jon Weston
