Walter Aubrey Scott (19 February 1907 – 23 October 1989) was an Australian cricketer who played a single first-class match for Victoria during the 1929–30 season. A right-handed batsman from Melbourne, Scott's sole match at first-class level came against Tasmania in February 1930, at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.[1] Victoria scored 451 runs in its only innings to win by an innings and 95 runs, with Scott contributing 21 runs opening the batting with the team's captain, Edward Tolhurst.[2] Aged 22 at the time of his debut, he did not play again at first-class level, but played two further matches for Victoria Country—against the touring South Africans during the 1931–32 season and against the touring MCC side the season after.[3] Scott died in October 1989, aged 82.[4]
