Wisden Obituary
The son of William Cuttell, who appeared a few times for Yorkshire, Willis Cuttell played twice for Yorkshire while engaged in Lancashire League cricket, and once he had served his residential qualification, he played regularly for Lancashire between 1896 and 1906. Cuttell's tight line and length, allied to an ability to turn the ball either way, made him a useful player, and his allround game was complemented by his excellent fielding, and an ability to defend or attack as the situation demanded. He prospered under the captaincy of AC MacLaren, and in 1898 became the first Lancashire player to achieve the double, and was named as one of Wisden's Cricketers of the Year. He played in just two Tests, when he toured South Africa in 1898-99 under Lord Hawke and performed well with the ball. On retirement he spent 20 years as coach at Rugby, and then was a first-class umpire for two seasons.
