HOVE: One-Day Groundsman of the Year Award03-Dec-2012
There was more awards success recently for Sussex Cricket as Andy Mackay, Sussex’s Head Groundsman at The PROBIZ County Ground, Hove, was the winner in the one-day category at the ECB’s 2012 Groundsman of the Year Awards.
Every pitch is rated at the end of the match by each of the umpires with these ratings used as the basis for making the awards.
It is has been one of the most challenging seasons on record for Andy and his team due to the increased amount of wet weather, making the achievement all the more impressive.
He and his team also scooped the award back in 2010 and have continued to produce excellent pitches at Hove. The Sussex staff beat off strong competition from Andy Fogarty's team at Headingley Carnegie, who were runners-up.
