His RAF career restricted his first-class cricket, but he played for the Gentlemen at Folkestone in 1925, hitting his first-class highest score of 65, and for the Gentlemen of England against Woodfull's 1934 Australians. His thirteen first-class matches brought 403 runs, average 25.18, nineteen catches and five stumpings. He also played for Cambridgeshire, and was a member of H. M.
