At Eton Arthur Tabor was in the XI in 1869 and two following years, but although he was, even then, recognised as a batsman of much merit, his scores in the Public School matches were, with one exception, very small. It is on account of what he did for Cambridge that he will chiefly be remembered. Obtaining his Blue as a Freshman, he played three times against Oxford. In the match of 1872 he and his fellow-Etonian, G. H. Longman,- both Freshmen - made 104 together for the first wicket in an hour and three-quarters, Tabor's score being 50. A year later he scored 3 and 45, and in 1874 made 52 and 0, the former innings, played on difficult ground, being the highest in the match for either side. It was in 1874 that he made his only appearance--at Prince's--for the Gentlemen. He played occasionally for Middlesex in 1872 and the next two years, and once for Surrey in 1878, but his form in those games was very disappointing. R. M. Tabor, who played in 1864, and Alfred Tabor, of the Harrow XI of 1868, were his brothers. For 30 years, 1891-1920, he was Headmaster of Cheam School.
