Lord George William Montagu-Douglas Scott, OBE, third son of the sixth Duke of Buccleuch, played for Eton in 1884 and 1885 and got his Blue at Oxford, making history in the 1887 match with Cambridge by scoring 100 and 66, at that time the highest individual aggregate in a Varsity match. He was the last choice, filling a vacancy caused by the inability of C Wreford Brown to play owing to an injured hand. He was missed three times in the first innings, but his second display was the most brilliant of the match, which Oxford won by seven wickets. Next year, when the match, though extended to four days, was drawn because of bad weather, Scott scored 32, highest for his side; and in 1889, when Cambridge won by an innings and 105 runs, thanks to Sammy Woods taking 17 wickets, his efforts were 37 not out and 9, again the best for Oxford. He played once for Gentlemen against Players, and also for Middlesex, without reproducing his early Oxford form. Sound in defence, Lord George Scott drove with special freedom in attractive style; he fielded well in the deep.
He served with the 10th Hussars in the Boer War, retiring as a captain, and then with the Lothians and Border Horse in the Great War, ending as a lieutenant-colonel.
