Profile

Jumbo Milton was the son of sportsman and politician Sir William Milton, who had played rugby union for England and then Test cricket for South Africa. After spending his early childhood in South Africa, Jumbo Milton lived in Mashonaland briefly and was then sent to Bedford School in England, to complete his schooling. While still a schoolboy, Milton was called into the England team for the 1904 Home Nations Championship, aged just 18. He played in all three Tests, against Wales, Ireland and Scotland. Milton made another appearance the following year against Scotland and played his fifth Test at Dublin in the 1907 series.He also played for invitational tourists the Barbarians during his time in Britain. Having returned to South Africa, Milton was selected in PW Sherwell's XI, which played a first-class cricket match against Transvaal in 1913-14.
