Mr Gerald Esdale Winter was a capital hard-hitting batsman and a useful lob-bowler, and played for Winchester in 1895, for Cambridge in 1898 and 1899, and for Middlesex in 1900. His best feats in matches of note were performed for the University. Against Sussex at Hove in 1898 he took ten wickets for 93 runs and scored 80 out of 108 in less than seventy minutes, and the same season made 142 against Liverpool and District. A year later, whilst playing against Surrey at the Oval, he claimed 84 of the 89 runs added with E. R. Wilson for the third wicket. In 1898 he visited America as a member of P. F. Warner's team.
