Geoffrey Bourke Cuthbertson, who died on August 9, 1993, aged 92, was captain of Northamptonshire in 1936 and 1937, two of the desperate seasons during the county's four-year sequence without a win. He played 43 matches for the county, of which none were won and 27 lost. Not surprisingly, he was remembered by team-mates as a genial optimist, as well as a bold batsman. Earlier, he had been a member of the Malvern XI, played for Cambridge (though he failed to get a Blue), Sussex (once) and Middlesex. When he died he was joint-senior member of MCC, having been elected in 1919.
