Mike Sturt was born in Wembley, Middlesex. He played county cricket for Middlesex CCC in six separate seasons between 1961 and 1978, as a right-handed lower-order batsman and a highly efficient deputy wicketkeeper, for most of the period playing only when John Murray was not available through Test or other commitments. He played in 33 first-class matches, taking 64 catches and making 8 stumpings.
He combined a successful business career with his cricket and he was a longtime committee member for both MCC and Middlesex. He has served as an MCC Trustee and as the County Chairman of Middlesex in 1993, before he suddenly resigned due to "a matter of principle".
