Bio

A fast bowler who made his first-class debut at the age of 28, Andrew Fekete’s brief first stint with Victoria is best remembered for the broken foot he suffered in a one-day match when he copped the brunt of a fierce straight drive from South Australia’s Theo Doropoulos.

Having moved to Tasmania, Fekete was finally selected for his first-class debut on the back of good form in the 2013 Ryobi Cup, highlighted by his man-of-the-match performance against South Australia.

He picked up 4-74 on his Sheffield Shield debut before good performances against Western Australia (2-44 and 4-54) and Queensland (3-41 and 3-36).

Fekete’s breakthrough season came in 2014-15 when he collected 37 Sheffield Shield wickets at a tidy average of 24.10 and won the Ricky Ponting Medal as Tasmania's best player.

He also claimed the David Boon Medal (Sheffield Shield Player of the Year) and the Jack Simmons Medal (Matador Cup Player of the Year) in the same season, becoming the first player since Michael Bevan in 2004-05 to claim all three awards.

Fekete produced another solid summer in 2015-16, returning 28 Sheffield Shield wickets.

Fekete has returned to the state of his birth for the 2018-19 summer.
