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.
In 1934-35 Natal had such extraordinary batting length that no fewer than seven batsmen scored centuries, a record for any team in South Africa. Tutton was one of them. The others almost read like a Springbok team Herby Taylor, Jack Siedle, Herbert Wade, Dudley Nourse, Eric Dalton and Lawrence Totter. In all he played no more than 10 first-class matches, but an average of 42 says alot for his ability.
He may have failed to reach the hundred that was his for the taking but there were shades of Hashim Amla's greatness on display at Trent Bridge
