Overseas Signing - Andrea Agathangelou - earns a Pro contract with Leicestershire!
We are proud to announce that we have our overseas player Andrea Agathangelou has earned a contract with County Championship side Leicestershire. After being given a trial for Leicestershire 2nd XI against Afghanistan, Aggers was keen to impress, which he did so emphatically scoring 163*. This led to him being offered a contract by Leicestershire and put straight into the 1st XI team for the match that coming weekend against Essex. Leicestershire ended up winning that match, winning their first County Championship match in nearly 3 years (38 matches) with Aggers ending on 42* to see his side over the finishing line. We wish Aggers all the best and hope to see him in Trowbridge colours again soon!
Andrea is a top order batsman who also bowls right arm leg spin. Andrea comes to Trowbridge on the back of five successful seasons playing for Lancashire County Cricket Club. Andrea represented Lancashire in the LV County Championship, Yorkshire Bank 40 over competition and also the Natwest T20 Blast. Andrea has scored over 2500 runs in first class cricket including 5 hundreds and 13 fifties.
After making his debut for his South African province, North West, at 18 years of age, scoring two half centuries in the process. He joined Lancashire on a scholarship in 2010 as a 20-year-old allrounder - he can keep wicket as well as bat in the top order and bowl leg spin - and signed a professional contract a year later after some eye-catching form in the Second XI, in particular a four-day friendly against Somerset in which he made scores of 129 and 70 not out and took 10 wickets. He made his senior debut for Lancashire in the County Championship match against Somerset at Liverpool in August 2012.

It has been noted over the years that there is nobody at the club for people to talk to about any concerns or problems they have. Players discuss a wide range of issues amongst themselves. Without a formal method of airing and resolving these issues it can become a problem.
We're excited to announce that we have introduced a new position at the club. Phillip Rutland has been appointed as the Players Representative for the club. He is there for all players to note any feedback or concerns. The Players Rep is a completely independent position, separate from the Committee and the Clubhouse. Phil is contactable via Facebook, email or phone (TCCrep@talktalk.net) so if you have any feedback about anything, please let Phil know.
