Cricket Victoria has received the sad news that former Victorian player Rex Harry passed away on April 15 aged 82.
A right-arm leg-spinner, Harry played 122 matches for North Melbourne between 1956-57 and 1965-66, taking 239 wickets at 19.35. His best figures were 9/66 against Richmond at Punt Road Oval in 1957-58. His best season was 1960-61 when he took 40 wickets at 15.25, a big factor in North's first finals appearance for more than 20 years.
The following season Harry played one first class match for Victoria against Tasmania at Geelong in 1961-62, scoring 4 and taking 0/27 and 1/47.
Following his retirement, Harry represented North as a VCA Delegate for three seasons from 1983-84 to 1985-86.
Cricket Victoria extends sincere condolences to the Harry family and to the North Melbourne and Greenvale Kangaroos Cricket Clubs.
