Profile

Alan Butcher was a stylish left-hand opener, particularly strong off the back foot, who captained Surrey and, in his twilight years, Glamorgan. He spent several of his formative years in Australia after his parents emigrated there, and on his return started his career as a left-arm fastish bowler before slipping into the role of specialist batsman.
