David Michael William Heath (Hall Green, Birmingham 14 December 1931 - Solihull 13 June 1994) was an English cricketer and cricket administrator. David Heath was educated at Moseley Grammar School, where he captained the cricket and rugby union teams. At 16, he scored a century for Warwickshire Amateurs versus Staffordshire. A year later, he made his first-class county debut. During his RAF service, he represented Combined Services and scored his only first-class century, 149 versus Worcestershire at New Road in 1951. He scored 580 runs as a right-handed batsman in 19 matches before he embarked on a successful business career. He captained Moseley to seven Birmingham League titles and later became President of the League. Further administrative appointments followed, before he succeeded A.C.Smith as Secretary/Chief Executive of Warwickshire County Cricket Club in 1986. He was forced to retire on health grounds, shortly before his death from kidney failure in 1994, aged 62.
