Thomas James Mottram (born 7 September 1945) is a former English cricketer. Mottram was a right-handed batsman who bowled right-arm medium pace. His appearances in first class cricket were restricted by his profession as a school teacher.
Mottram first represented the Lancashire Second XI in two matches in the 1970 Minor Counties Championship against Cumberland and Yorkshire Second XI.
Mottram joined Hampshire in 1971, making his debut in a List-A match against Somerset.
Mottram made his first-class debut in 1972 against the touring Australians. His County Championship debut came against Worcestershire at the United Services Recreation Ground in Portsmouth.
Mottram was a part of Hampshire's 1973 County Championship winning team, where he starred with the ball taking 57 wickets at an average of 22.00, including career best figures of 6-63. His performances and personality made him a cult figure at the club.
Mottram was played the majority of his cricket for Hampshire in the one-day form of the game, playing in 83 matches, the last of which came in 1977 against Kent. Mottram took 135 wickets at the brilliant average of 18.69 with career best figures of 5-21.
In 1976 Mottram's first-class career came to an end, with his final match against Derbyshire. Mottram, a poor batsman, did not excel in either form of the game with the bat, averaging under six in both forms. But his bowling was once more reliable in first-class cricket, taking 111 wickets at an average of 24.11.
At the end of the 1977 County Championship Mottram left Hampshire.
