Under the heading 'Other Random Stuff"

Earlier in this blog, Jo made reference to one of her other great loves - cricket!
With this in mind I did a search of Australian sports hero's in the hope that we could come up with a Fitzhenry descendant - even historically - who excelled in the field. Sadly, no such luck! We did have a Daniel Fitzhenry from NSW who was a minor international star in Rugby circles, ending up signing contracts with both English and French rugby teams!
However, my recent surf and search for South African Fitzhenrys finally hit pay dirt.,,, a cricket playing Fitzhenry!!
Please note: Russel Fitzhenry, born 1963, playing with Eastern Province Country District League, right handed batsman, and right arm offbreak bowler.

OK, so it's not at exactly international level, but it's nice to see the Fitzhenry's giving it the good old fashioned try, and love of the game is not solely devolved to a lone Fitzhenry descendant in Nottingham!!
(and yes, the rather desultary results of the recent Aussie tour of India, passed without comment, for a reason!! lol)

Lesley in Australia (who will be watching the Boxing Day test on TV, not attending like 2 of her brothers!)
