  • Albert Edward Nutter was an English cricketer who played over 200 first-class matches, mostly for Lancashire and Northamptonshire. He was a right-handed batsman and bowled at a medium fast pace. Born in the town of Burnley, he made his first-class debut for Lancashire in August 1935 at the age of 22. Nutter spent 10 years with Lancashire, during which time he played 70 matches for the side. In June 1939, he achieved his highest ever first-class score of 109 not out in the County Championship match against Nottinghamshire. During the same summer he spent one match as the club professional at Accrington Cricket Club in the Lancashire League. During the early 1940s, while the County Championship was suspended due to the Second World War, Nutter played for many representative teams including the North of England, the West of England, a British Empire XI and the Royal Air Force. In 1945, he returned to the Lancashire League to play a season as the professional for Nelson Cricket Club, the club's first English professional for 24 years. Nutter joined Northamptonshire in the summer of 1948 and had his most successful season as a bowler, taking 105 wickets at an average of 22.88.
