NCCC has appointed Andrew Radd as its Honorary Archivist

Andrew is a well-known daily voice on BBC Radio Northampton and has written extensively about cricket - and Northamptonshire cricket in particular - since entering the Wantage Road press box for the first time in 1984.

He co-authored (with Matthew Engel) the club's official history, as well as penning titles about NCCC's greatest players and matches, and edited the club handbook for many years.  He has also been Northamptonshire correspondent for 'Wisden' for most of the last three decades, and has contributed a weekly local cricket column to the Northamptonshire Telegraph for over a quarter-of-a-century.

His other published work includes a history of cricket in Oundle - where he is the Town club's 1st XI scorer on Saturday afternoons.

Born in Northampton and a supporter since his first visit to the County Ground in 1972, he will now advise the club on history and heritage matters - as well as getting involved in some exciting new projects to highlight and celebrate NCCC's 139 years on the field.

"I'm passionate about county cricket and especially my own county," he says.

"It was interesting to attend a recent meeting of the County Heritage Forum at The Oval and learn what other clubs are doing.  The idea is to take some of those ideas on board as well as coming up with a few of our own!"

Northamptonshire’s Chairman, Gavin Warren, said: “I am absolutely delighted to appoint Andrew as our Honorary Archivist. His knowledge and love for  Northamptonshire County Cricket Club is second to none.”
