Andy Carter took wickets at will for Bracebridge Heath in the Lincolnshire Premier League in 2007, topping the bowling averages and enjoying a career-best haul of 8-67, earning him a regular place in his home county's Minor Counties side.
Having been plucked from the Lincolnshire setup and awarded a short-term deal in April 2008, Carter impressed sufficiently to win an extended stay at Trent Bridge. He honed his raw pace in the Second Eleven in 2009 and took a club record 54 wickets to underline the rate of his development and winning the Second XI Player of the Year award. His achievements didn’t go unnoticed and he made his LV= County Championship debut in 2009 followed by selection for the England Lions squad of 2010/11.
Andy Carter stayed at Notts, though he did go out on loan on occasions, until 2015 and since then has represented a number of other counties.
