Batting and Fielding
|Slipped on an icy pavement on Christmas Day. Damaged his finger, septic poisoning set in and killed him.
First appeared for Essex in 1893 and retired in 1921.
From 1930 he was the official Essex scorer.
He was a hitter of the ball but a good one.
Standing over 6 foot tall he was one of the "Essex twins". The other being the taller Percy Perrin.
These two were often the accumulators of many runs for the county.
In 1900 they put on 323 together against Kent which was a third wicket record at the time.
There were times when his health threatened an early retirement but he worked through these difficult times.
His sports included Assoiation Football. Playeing for Totenham Hotspurs, Sheffield United, Woolwich Arsenal as well as Corinthians.
He never played a cricket Test which is a failing of the selection committee rather than his.
Perhaps it was the fact he would hit the ball back hard and straight down the wicket. In one incident he managed to break his partners arm by driving the ball so hard.
