  • Charles Leslie Dinsdale Fawcus (8 December 1898 — 8 December 1967) was an English cricketer who played seven first-class matches in the 1920s. Despite his short career, he made first-class appearances for Kent, Worcestershire and Oxford University; he also turned out for Dorset at minor counties level. After a couple of appearances for Kent's Second XI Fawcus made his first-team debut for that county against Middlesex in June 1924; he batted at eight in the first innings and two in the second, making 0 and 5.This was to prove his only first-class appearance for Kent, but in 1925 and 1926 he played for Oxford on five occasions. It was in one of these matches, against Surrey in June 1926, that he made his only first-class half-century, striking 70 in the second innings. He was a student at Christ Church, Oxford. As well as these appearances for Oxford, on one occasion Fawcus played against them. This happened at The Parks in May 1925, when he turned out for Worcestershire; he made 43 and 4. He played no first-class cricket after the 1926 season, but played for Dorset at minor-counties level in the 1930s. Fawcus bowled regularly for Dorset, despite never having taken a wicket at first-class level, and in August 1933 against Cornwall claimed a first-innings return of 7-68. Fawcus died on his 69th birthday. The announcement in The Times of his son's marriage in 1967 indicates that Fawcus was commonly called by his second name, Leslie. (en)
