Percy Sydney Twentyman Jones, who died on March 8, aged 77, following a serious operation, played for South Africa at both cricket and Rugby football. Born on September 13, 1876, he appeared as a batsman for Western Province from 1898 to 1905. Against the Australian touring team of 1902, he was, with 33 and 50, top-scorer in each innings for Western Province on a bad pitch. This performance earned him a place in the third Test match at Cape Town, but he was twice dismissed without scoring. He represented South Africa at football in 1896. In later years he became a well-known sports administrator. He was formerly Judge President of the Cape of Good Hope Division of the Supreme Court.
