George Patterson was one of the best all-round cricketers ever produced by America. Over six feet tall and of slim build, he batted in good style and bowled right-arm medium-pace. For Haverford College and Pennsylvania University he made a name when young and played for Germanstown Club when only 15. He came to England with the Gentleman of Phildelphia team in 1889 and, scoring 529 runs, average 40.69, he headed the batting figures, besides taking 42 wickets at 23 runs apiece.
