|Accrington Cricket Club|
of birth: 16th February 1975
Andre made his First Class debut for Northern Transvaal against Barbados in the 1993-94 season. He has also played for Gauteng. In the 2002-03 season he was a member of the Easterns side that won its first major cricket title to become the 2002/03 SuperSport Series champions.
Andre became the eighth player to score 1,000 runs in a season for the club. Andre scored 11 fifties and two unbeaten centuries as he just failed to pass Ken Archer's total set in 1954. Andre finished with 1115 runs, which was just 15 short of making him the highest scoring batsman in the league - some achievement for a player who was drafted in as a last minute replacement for original choice Ashwell Prince who had to withdraw with a shoulder injury.
In 2003, he became Accrington's second heaviest run scorer in a season without ever threatening Bobby Simpson's all time record of 1444. The South African hit 1235 runs, including two centuries and ten fifties, and he also took 30 wickets in a season that saw Accrington climb one notch up the ladder to 13th. Andre and Mohsin Ahmed broke the club's 65 year-old first wicket record partnership with a stand of 181 in a club record limited over score of 272-6 against Haslingden.
Andre was Accrington's sixth South African professional following Charlie Llewellyn (1911), Eddie Barlow (1964), Peter Swart (1969), Neil Johnson (1993) and Chad Grainger (1996).
