From 1883 until 1904 he was a member of the M.C.C. groundstaff and appeared in several matches between 1883 and 1892. He took 608 wickets at an average of 17.18, with a personal best of 10/59. He was awarded two benefit matches at Lord's in 1892 and 1905. He acted as the official scorer of Middlesex CCC for a number of years and also stood as a first-class umpire between 1898 and 1899.

By occupation he was a master coachsmith. His son Frederick Alfred (1885-1978) also played professional cricket for Hertfordshire and M.C.C. and married a daughter of Herbert Hearne.
