Jack Knutton had one day of cricketing glory when he came out of the Bradford League to skittle the 1902 Australians. No Australian game had been arranged for the date of King Edward VII's Coronation but when the King developed appendicitis and the festivities were postponed, the tourists hastily organised a match at Bradford against "an England XI". It included not a single Test player and Knutton was the only fast bowler. He clean bowled Noble, Hill and Darling in his second over, and though the Australians recovered and won by seven wickets, Knutton had first-innings figures of nine for 100 and dismissed Darling a second time to finish the game with 10 for 117. Knutton, from Coventry, played just one other first-class match, for Warwickshire in 1894. But he took a thousand wickets in the Bradford League at high pace with an action sometimes regarded as suspect.
