In 1904, with the aid of an innings of 201 not out, he headed the School batting figures with 880 runs, average 67.69. His first summer with Kent was his most successful as a batsman, for he hit a century in each of the two matches with Gloucestershire and reached an aggregate of 1,050 runs, average 35. In 1908, when he scored 118 against Somerset at Taunton, he and E. Humphreys added 248, which remains a record for the Kent seventh wicket.
