Andy Brown (19??-2014)

Andy Brown, who was an integral member of Remnants CC in the 1980s and 1990s, died in January 2014 and will be greatly missed by all Remnants members from those years. A quiet and unassuming character off the field, his deeds spoke for themselves on it - he took 181 wickets at 15.12 in his 187 matches, and remains the only Remnant to have taken three five-fors. We will commemorate his contribution to Remnants by having a memorial internal game on Wednesday, June 25. This web-page is intended to serve as a more permanent tribute to Andy - if you would like to add your own message please contact Daniel Mortlock.


Andy, like myself, was in on the early days of Remnants' long history when the solid foundations of the club were developed. He was a steady medium pace bowler, who could move it a bit, and a batsmen who could stay in when you needed him to, also scoring runs. More than that he was a good team man. Reliable and with a good sense of humour, he was an asset both on and off the field. He helped to instigate the Cambridge University Press vs. Remnants fixtures which for many years were a regular feature of the season. The games were always competitive but finished with an enjoyable social gathering.
