|Notes / History||Arthur John William McIntyre, known as A.J. McIntyre (b.1918) was an English cricketer with a famously safe pair of hands.
As the wicket-keeper he was an integral part of the Surrey side that won the County Championship in every season from 1952 to 1958 inclusive.
He made his first-class cricket debut for Surrey in 1938.
Originally a versatile all-rounder, he was eventually tasked exclusively with keeping wicket.
He also played in three Test matches for England during the 1950s.
