Right-arm pace bowler Gareth Andrew says his decision to move to Worcestershire from Somerset was a "no-brainer", .

With no first-class appearances in the last two seasons, Andrew was offered a one-year deal by promoted Somerset for 2008. Relegated Worcestershire's two-year offer made up his mind.

"I want to do more than just play one-day cricket," said the 23-year-old who in 11 first-class appearances has taken 28 wickets at 35.32.

"I want to play four-day, too, and I just haven't had any chances. So when Worcestershire made their approach, it was a 'no-brainer' and everything moved very quickly."

Born in Yeovil, Andrew was reared in the small Somerset town of Bruton, where he played his early club cricket, and has since turned out for Glastonbury in the Western Premier League.

A shoulder injury, and a slight ankle problem, has held back his development after England Under-19 representation.
