George Beldham was first played for Middlesex in 1900 when 32 years of age. Experience in high-class club cricket enabled him to gain a place in a very powerful side and for eight seasons he did valuable work. In 1903 when Middlesex were Champions, Beldam closely followed Plum Warner, their most consistent batsman, in aggregate and average. He maintained his form until 1907 when he dropped out of the side. Altogether for Middlesex he scored 4,796 runs, with an average of 30.16, and took 76 wickets at 27.14 runs apiece. His highest aggregate in first-class matches was 1,158 in 1901. He also played for London County with WG Grace.
