Profile

Scores and Biographies summed him up thus: As a batsman he possesses an excellent style, and is a good free hitter, is a capital field anywhere, and bowls fast round-armed, being altogether an energetic and useful cricketer. In 1866 he was a member of one of the best sides Harrow ever had; that year they beat Eton by an innings and 136 runs, Cobden and Money bowling with great effect. He was unable to play at Lord's the next year as about a fortnight before the match he cut his foot severely on a concealed scythe in jumping a ditch. His county cricket was confined to a few appearances for Middlesex.
