Robert Allan "Fitz" Fitzgerald was an English cricketer and administrator who served as Secretary to the Marylebone Cricket Club between 1863-1876. He represented Cambridge University, M.C.C. and Middlesex, in 46 first-class matches between 1854 and 1874. He also played for I Zingari, the Gentleman of M.C.C., Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire. Between 1854 and 1874 he played 50 matches per year and in 1866 scored over 1,000 runs. As Secretary of the M.C.C., Fitzgerald sought greater influence for M.C.C. 'off the field' and did much to help improve Lord's Cricket Ground and its facilities. He became M.C.C.'s first paid secretary in 1865.

Fitzgerald was popular and witty. Lord Harris wrote of him: "Whether it was the magnificence of his swagger, the luxuriance of his beard, the fun that rolled out of him so easily, or the power of his swiping, I do not know, but as regards each he could not escape notice'.
