Andy Curtis awarded Honorary Life Membership

The Somerset Cricket Foundation made a very special presentation at the recent annual Harry Burden memorial luncheon.

During the event, Andy Curtis was awarded an Honorary Life Membership of Somerset County Cricket Club.

The presentation was made by Somerset batter James Hildreth.

Andy has been involved with the newly formed Somerset Cricket Foundation, formerly Somerset Cricket Board, since 2004.

During that period, he was Chairman of the Cricket Board from 2008 until 2021.

Over the years Andy has dedicated a huge amount of time and effort into a number of areas, including the original player pathway system for young people in Somerset and overseeing the coaching and management structures, which were the responsibility of the Cricket Board for a number of years before this responsibility transitioned to the County Club.

He also oversaw and played a major role in the move from the Cricket Board to the creation of the new Foundation.

Following the presentation, Somerset Cricket Foundation Managing Director, Jon Bendle said: “The award of Honorary Life Membership is an extremely fitting and well-deserved accolade to Andy, who over a long period of time has served the County with distinction.

“His passion, knowledge and commitment to Somerset Cricket since 2004 has seen him involved in many facets of recreational cricket, which has benefited so many people. Andy can be very proud of how the organisation has develop under his stewardship into what it has become today.”
