He also played three Second XI Championship matches and seven Minor Counties Championship games for Surrey Second XI. His solitary first-team county appearance occurred in a high-scoring draw against Warwickshire at The Oval in July 1960, failing to capture a wicket as Norman Horner and Khalid Ibadulla compiled an unbroken first-wicket partnership of 377.
One of the tallest county cricketers of all time, his height was measured at 6 feet 9 inches or maybe an inch taller (thus equalling Paul Dunkels and Will Jefferson). When he was a schoolboy cricketer at Charterhouse, where he played in the first XI from 1954 to 1957, Wisden gave his height as 6 feet 10 1/2 inches.
