Cyril Francis Walter Allcott, who died in Auckland on November 21, 1973, aged 77, was a good left-handed all-rounder who played in six Test matches for New Zealand. He visited England in 1927 and 1931 and played against England and South Africa in his own country. He also toured Australia in 1925-26. Though he achieved little in Test cricket, he did some notable performances in other first-class cricket during a career extending from 1921 to 1946. In 1927 he (131) and C. S. Dempster (180) scored 301 for the second wicket against Warwickshire at Edgbaston and he (102 not out) and J. E. Mills (104 not out) added 190 in an unbroken eighth wicket partnership against Civil Service at Chiswick. In 1925-26 he (116) and W. R. Patrick (143) put on 244 for the second wicket against New South Wales at Sydney. As a slow to medium-pace bowler, one of his best feats was when he returned figures of 5 overs, 3 maidens, 3 runs, 5 wickets at Weston-super-Mare in 1927. Somerset, set to get 162 to win, were all out for 67 and beaten by 94 runs. For Hawkes Bay, Auckland and Otago Allcott did much excellent work.
