George Chesterton was a right-arm seam bowler who played 47 times for Worcestershire between 1950 and 1957 but whose career extended to almost two decades. He represented Oxford University in 1948 and 1949, winning his Blue in the second year, and then switched to Worcestershire where as an amateur he played when time permitted. His first-class career extended until 1966 with appearances for MCC. His best bowling came in his final full season when he took 7 for 14 for MCC in Ireland, and in the Championship he best came at New Road that same year when he took 6 for 56 against Middlesex. He remained closely involved with the county and was the president between 1990 and 1993. A keen backer of youth cricket, in 1991 he founded the Chesterton Cup which involved schools across the Midlands. He worked at Malvern College, where he had also been a pupil, becoming deputy head and he also wrote a history of the school.
