A big hitter, he scored 235 for Sussex Martlets against Cuckfield in 1907. He played in two matches for Sussex.
Wisden Cricketers' Almanack
"His indifferent fielding kept him out of the Cambridge XI. At Cheltenham, he always kept wicket and occasionally he deputised for MW Payne in the Cambridge side in 1904. He was built on stiff and clumsy lines, which made him unagile in the field. But he was, in disposition, the gentlest man alive. Something of a Collosus, he used specially-made bats weighing in at over 4lbs with three or four rubbers."
