The death of Fred Jinks
Recognised as a fine footballer in his day, Mr. Frederick Jinks died in Melbourne yesterday.
Mr Jinks lived at California Gully, Bendigo, and played football with Eaglehawk when that team was at the peak of its fame. For some time he played football with Eaglehawk on a Wednesday and Carlton on a Saturday. He later transferred to a Melbourne club and became one of the best followers in Victoria.
He was also a member of the Eaglehawk fire brigade when it was the champion brigade of the State. Two of Mr. Jinks's sons playcricket with the Carlton club.
