Stuart Edward Leary was found dead on Table Mountain, Cape Town on August 23, 1988 and is thought to have died two days earlier. He was 55. He had played for Kent from 1951 to 1971, and in all first-class games he scored 16,517 runs with an average of 31.10 and took 146 wickets at 33.80 as a right-hand middle-order batsman and leg-break bowler. Quite outstanding as a schoolboy cricketer - he was Sea Point High's first South African Schools cap - rugby fly-half and soccer forward in Cape Town, he came to Britain in 1949 at the age of 16 to join Charlton Athletic as a professional soccer player. He made his first-team début two years later and was soon established as a centre-forward of skill and perception. Towards the end of this career he played for Queen's Park Rangers.
