Product Description

Cuthbert Ottaway was an all-round sportsman in the heydey of the gentleman amateurs. Educated at Eton and Oxford, he played first class cricket, excelled at rackets and athletics, and was England's football captain for the first official international with Scotland in 1872. His early death from pneumonia perhaps caused his sporting achievements to be overlooked, a matter rectified by Michael Southwick's study.

I was a little disappointed when it arrived because it's more of a pamphlet than a book. It's a good read even though the format is a little strange
