Benjamin Leonard "Ben" Hutton (born 29 January 1977), is a retired English cricketer.

Early life[edit]

Ben Hutton was educated at Radley and Durham University for whom he opened the innings with the former England captain Andrew Strauss.

He came from cricketing stock as the elder son of the cricketer Richard Hutton and his grandfathers Sir Leonard Hutton and Ben Brocklehurst also played first-class cricket.


He represented Middlesex as a left-handed opening batsman, an enthusiastic fielder and occasional right-arm fast-medium bowler. He made his first-class debut in 1999 and was awarded his county cap in 2003. He captained the County between 2005 and 2006. In 108 first-class matches for the county, he scored 5,712 runs (average 33.60) with a highest score of 152 with 18 hundreds and 18 fifties and taking 136 catches. He announced his retirement from first-class cricket in October 2007 at the early age of 30.[1]


He has commenced a new career in the City of London and also completed the term of Don Bennett as a member of the Middlesex County Cricket Club Executive Board (2011–2012).
