Cricket Player

1879 – 1927


Who was George Arbuthnot Scott?

George Arbuthnot Scott played first-class cricket for Cambridge University in 1900 and 1901. He was born at Wimbledon, then in Surrey, and died at Ore, Hastings, Sussex.

Educated at Tonbridge School, Scott was a right-arm fast bowler and a right-handed tail-end batsman. He played first for Cambridge University in 1900 and in his second match, against MCC, he took five first innings wickets for 72 runs, his wickets being five of the first six MCC batsmen. However, he achieved little in two subsequent games for the university side and did not win a blue. After the university term was over, he appeared in a second eleven match for Kent.

In 1901, Scott was picked for the "seniors'" trial match at Cambridge, and did well, with seven wickets in the match. That led to his recall for one further first-class match with the university first eleven, but he was not successful, failing to take a wicket in the game. When the university term was over in 1901, he played Minor Counties cricket for Norfolk.
