Cuthbertson was educated at Malvern College, where he played for the First XI. He went up to Cambridge University, playing occasional first-class matches as an opening batsman for the university team from 1920 to 1922 without winning a Blue, and making a top score of 67 against Army in 1920.
He played one match for Sussex in 1920, then joined Middlesex, playing occasional matches from 1921 to 1927 with a top score of 58 against Kent in 1925. He also played for Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) (he was a member of the club for 74 years) and Free Foresters, and toured the USA with Incogniti in 1924.
After a period out of the first-class game he joined Northamptonshire in 1935. Northamptonshire had finished last in the County Championship, with two wins, in 1934, and in 1935 they won only one match and finished last again. Cuthbertson was appointed to captain the side in 1936 and 1937, but the side did not win a match under his captaincy, and in fact went from May 1935 to May 1939 without a victory in 101 matches. "Not surprisingly," said Wisden, "he was remembered by team-mates as a genial optimist, as well as a bold batsman."
