Morton Betts was a very useful cricketer, although he did not succeed in obtaining a place in the Harrow XI. In 1872 he appeared for Middlesex against Surrey at Prince's, and played once for Kent the same year and again in 1881, scoring altogether 83 runs with an average of 27.66. From 1887 until 1890 he was Secretary to the Essex County CC. In club matches he made many good scores, playing frequently for Bickley Park, Streatham, the Incogniti, etc., and was very well known in the Association football world, first as a player and afterwards as a referee.
