  • Notes 
    • Played cricket for Yorkshire seconds.
      Rugby international,
      Joined Headingley in1903 from Old Dewsburians, playing regularly at full back until 1906. Played 14 times for Yorkshire and was reserve for England in all three games in 1905, a year in which England used three different full backs and lost all three games.
      He was reported as having played an outstanding game for Yorkshire against the All Blacks the following season and established a reputation as both a deadly tackler and a splendid kicker.
      He was fullback in the Yorkshire fifteen that got beaten by the first All Blacks 44-0 on 13 December 1905, Dave Gallaher the All Blacks captain gave him his jersey after the game because he tackled and defended so well.

      He never married and died as a result of wounds he suffered during the war (1914-1918)
    • Obituary Mr Joseph Speight Auty in Wisden Crickerters' Almanack 1922

      AUTY, MR. JOSEPH SPEIGHT, who died on March 27, aged 38, was in the Mill Hill School eleven in 1899 and three following seasons, being particularly successful in 1901 and 1902 as an all-round player. In 1901 he averaged 35.61 with the bat and took 58 wickets for 11.34 runs each, heading both averages, while in the following year he did great things in run-getting. Against Bishop's Stortford School he made 101 not out and v. Wellingborough Grammar School, on his opponents' ground, carried out his bat for 197 in a total of 306, which contained 22 extras. Subsequently he assisted Yorkshire 2nd XI on a few occasions, but he never played for the county. He had, however, appeared for Yorkshire at Rugby football.
