Humphrey made his first-class debut for Surrey against Sussex in 1864. Humphrey represented Surrey in four first-class matches in 1864, the last of which came against Nottinghamshire. For the second half of the 1864 season, Humphrey joined Hampshire where he made his debut for the county against Sussex in Hampshire County Cricket Club's first first-class match.
