Andy Mack spent three years on Glamorgan`s staff during the late 1970`s, after having had a couple of years on Surrey`s books.
The tall left-arm seamer had first played 2nd XI cricket for Surrey in 1973 before appearing in five Sunday League matches for Surrey during 1975. Andy was on their staff for the next two years but being unable to command a regular first team place, he moved to South Wales hoping to play more first-class cricket.
He enjoyed a successful Championship debut for Glamorgan returning match figures of 7/52 against Worcestershire at New Road. The home side were dismissed for 95 in their second innings as the Welsh county completed a 175-run victory. However, Andy failed to reproduce this form in subsequent seasons and allied to his niggling injuries, he was released from the Glamorgan staff at the end of the 1980 season.
Andy subsequently joined the Metropolitan Police and played for the British Police from 1982 until 1995. In 1989 he also appeared in Minor County cricket for Norfolk, and for the next two years, he also represented the Minor Counties in the Benson and Hedges competition.
