Gerald Patrick Desmond Hartigan, who died in a Durban hospital on January 7, aged 70, played for South Africa at both cricket and Association football. As a right-handed batsman and fast-medium bowler, he appeared for Border in the Currie Cup competition from 1903 to 1927, his highest innings being 176 not out against Eastern Province in 1910-11. In 1912 he was a member of the South African team who figured in the Triangular Tournament in England, but he played in only twelve matches, including two Tests, for, in returning a ball from the deep field, he fractured an arm. In 1913-14 he took part in the first three Test matches against the England touring side led by JWHT Douglas and at Johannesburg in the second was top scorer in the first innings with 51.
