More About the Author

My name is Michael Southwick, aka Mick Southwick, aka HistoryMick! I am a local and family historian based on Tyneside, UK. I have several websites and blogs - my prime outlet being the 'British and Irish Genealogy Blog' at www.bi-gen.blogspot.com . I am also the biographer of England's first football captain, Cuthbert Ottaway. Best place to go for further information is my personal website at www.historymick.weebly.com - where you will find MANY more publications other than those listed below!

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.

This book was purchased for my daughter, so I haven't read it myself. I received it within the required time, with no problems

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
