Profile

An effective middle-order bat for his county and England, and Gloucestershireƕs first professional captain (although Cornish by birth). Left handed, he used a sound technique and great patience to accumulate many runs. An excellent first slip. His playing career was cut short by ill-health but later in life he became a well respected umpire. He appeared for England against Australia, and took part in a thrilling finish on the 1947-8 South African tour (Dave Liverman, 1998).
