Stuart McMillan (footballer)

Stuart McMillan (17 September 1896 – 27 September 1963) was an English cricketer and footballer and later became a manager. He was a right-handed batsman and a right-arm medium-fast bowler who played for Derbyshire. He was born in Leicester and died in Ashbourne. His father John was a professional footballer and football manager.[1]

Cricket career

McMillan's first-class debut came in the 1922 season against Essex at Derby,[2] where, as a middle order batsman, he was unable to make much headway in the match, bowling a single, expensive over, conceding 14 runs, and finishing not out for 0 in the only innings in which he batted. As there was no play on the first day of the match, it was to end in a draw with the best batting performance of the game coming from Essex's centurion Peter Perrin.

McMillan made just one appearance during the following season, and had to wait for more than thirteen months before making his final two appearances, both at home, in 1924. While he scored well in the first match of the season, his second finished with him getting out for a duck.
