The Rev. Arthur Henry Winter, died in his 94th year - the same age as Tom Collins who, before his passing in 1934, was the oldest living cricket Blue. This distinction then belonged to Winter. In the Westminster School XI from 1859 to 1863, Arthur Winter finished as captain and, going up to Cambridge, got his Blue in 1865 and the two following years. Although he was an excellent opening batsman, his scores in the big matches at Lord's were 0 and 15; 23 and 16; 16 and 27. He played for the Gentlemen at Lord's in 1866 and appeared occasionally for Middlesex in 1866 and 1867. Mr. Winter could field well anywhere and became such an adept wicketkeeper that in the 1867 University match he surprised his captain, the Hon. F. G. Pelham, by dispensing with a long-stop. Without any suggestion of boasting, he used to say: "I never missed a catch to which I could get a hand". Mr. A. C. Bartholomew, Marlborough and Oxford, who was born on February 21, 1846, is now the oldest living cricket Blue. He played in the University match of 1868.
