Oxfordshire Cricket are delighted to announce that ex-professional cricketer, Gareth Andrew will join Oxfordshire squad for the remainder of the 2018 season.
Gareth is an all rounder who has played 96 first class and 234 List A and T20 matches for Somerset, Worcestershire, Hampshire in the United Kingdom and Canterbury in New Zealand. In his professional career he has taken 238 first class wickets with his Right Arm medium fast bowling and has made nearly 3000 first class runs with his hard hitting middle order batting, including a highest score of 180 not out.
Gareth’s significant playing experience will bring professionalism and a breadth of knowledge to the Oxfordshire squad. His influence both on and off the field will be paramount in helping Oxfordshire to win cricket matches and maximise the potential of young players within the squad. His family also has a connection to Oxfordshire where his late father was once the chairman of locally based cricket club, Dorchester on Thames CC.
Oxfordshire Cricket take this opportunity to welcome Gareth and look forward to his contribution in the season ahead.
Oxfordshire skipper Cater told Sports Shots:
The signing of Gareth will give everyone a boost at the county.
He will bring both experience and quality to our young squad and we are all looking forward to him wearing an Oxfordshire shirt.
