Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Tuesday paid tribute to former Free State president Carl van Heerden who has died in Bloemfontein at the age of 78. He had been in poor health for some time.

“Carl made a major contribution to South African cricket in the field of administration,” commented CSA Acting CEO Jacques Faul. “This included being president of the Free State Cricket Union from 1994 to 1998 which was a very important period in the unifying of the game.

“The Van Heerden family has, in fact, become synonymous with Free State cricket as three of his four sons, Johan, Paul and Francois, played provincial cricket and Johan has gone on to follow his father’s administrative steps by becoming CEO of the Free State Cricket Union as well as the Central Cricket Franchise which plays under the brand name of the Knights.

“On behalf of the CSA Family I extend our deepest condolences to the Van Heerden family on their sad loss.”

He is survived by his wife, Joan, his four sons - Johan, Francois, Danie and Paul - and daughter Maggie Rowley.
