He was an opening batsman and a roundarm bowler which was the more common form of bowling at the time. Arthur represented Tasmania in three first-class matches, and a single game for a Rest of Australia side in 1872/73. Bizarrely, despite not normally playing as a wicket-keeper and never taking a single first-class catch, he did effect one first-class stumping whilst filling in as keeper. In the same match in the 1868-69 season he captained the Tasmanian side, although the match was lost and Tasmania were bowled out for just 18 in the first innings.
John Lake Allen Arthur died in his hometown of Longford, Tasmania on 26 April 1877, aged 30 years and 19 days.
