Played a few matches for Yorkshire but it was for Lancashire and England he did his work.
He was the first Lancashire profesional to reach four figures in a county season.
A good outfielder he could also turn his arm to a bit of slow bowling.
Before the 'googly' was invented he was one of the first freak bowlers.
Also can be remembered for a strange dismissal at Old Trafford in 1899.
In playing a ball his bat broke and one of the pieces knocked off the leg bail. He was given out for 72, 'hit wicket.' Some ball.
