Nottinghamshire First-Class Debut – 27 March 2011 v MCC (Abu Dhabi)
A graduate of the Nottinghamshire Academy, Brett Hutton made his first appearance for the county at under 13s level in 2006. He progressed to the Second XI in 2010 before making his First-Class debut in 2011.
A right-arm pace bowler and an attacking lower middle-order batsman, Hutton’s first senior appearance for Nottinghamshire came in Abu Dhabi in March 2011 when he played in the Champion County match against the MCC. Later that summer, he featured for England Under-19s in the home One-Day International series against South Africa Under-19s.
Hutton continued his development in the Nottinghamshire Second XI. He made a handful of senior starts in 2011 and 2013, including his Championship debut at the end of 2013, when Somerset’s Marcus Trescothick was his maiden First-Class victim. In 2015, on the back of good returns and some useful scores in the Seconds, he appeared more regularly in the County Championship. He played in nine matches and took 37 wickets, with a Notts career best of 5-29 and 10 wickets in the match against Durham.
Over the next two seasons, Hutton took a further 68 First-Class wickets and was the Club’s leading Championship wicket-taker in 2017. He again took 10 wickets in a match, claiming five Derbyshire wickets in each innings of the Championship match at Derby in August 2017.
In his first stint with Nottinghamshire, Hutton took 106 wickets in 33 red-ball starts. With the bat he contributed 970 runs, with a top score of 74 against Durham in May 2016.
At the end of the 2017 season, Hutton joined Northamptonshire and took 87 further First-Class wickets at an average of 23.54, whilst also representing the Steelbacks in 11 white-ball matches.
The all-rounder returned to the club at the close of the 2020 season, signing a three-year contract, and immediately played his part in a rampant seam attack which guided Notts to third in Division One.
