I like playing for the casuals because………. this is what cricket should be about.
I hate playing for the casuals because………… of the showers after the games - quite terrifying!
If I didn’t play so much cricket I’d be………. I'd be bored
Did you know…. As a former Casuals captain, Andy has been given many opportunities that would not be open to mere mortals. Indeed the Casuals captaincy meant, at the time, that he was welcomed into any club and restaurant in the city centre. So much so that after guiding the casuals to 11 straight wins at the start of the 2004 season he was given the key to the city and had a portrait commissioned that sits in City Hall next to the one of Prince Charles. However since leaving he has trouble getting into his local kebab house in Grangetown....ah how fickle the sports fans of Cardiff are!
