Cliff Tutton was a splendid all-round sportsman. At Durban High School he opened the batting with Jack Siedle, a lifelong friend, who was later to be South Africa's regular opening batsman. They were such a terror to opposing schools that the rest of the team rarely got an innings. Tutton, tall and very strong, was a dashing batsman and a terrific hitter.
