Rhodesian-born Norman Featherstone was a right-hand middle-order batsman and a more than useful offspinner who toured England with South African Schools in 1967 and the following season began a 12-year career with Middlesex while wintering in South Africa. Although initially part of a struggling side, Middlesex emerged as a powerful force in the mid 1970s and Featherstone was a key part of that team. In 1976, when they won their first title for 27 years, he scored 995 runs and took 36 wickets, and he picked up another Championship title (shared) in 1977 as well as a Gillette Cup winners medal against Glamorgan (to go with his Gillette Cup success for Transvaal in 1973-74).
