Harrow won by three wickets within two minutes of time. He was awarded the Ebrington Cup for fielding. An Oxford Blue in 1889, he failed in a disastrous match at Lord's, Cambridge winning by an innings and 105 runs; he was also disappointing for Middlesex before playing in turn for Norfolk and Suffolk.
