The son of William Shrewsbury, Arthur Shrewsbury, junior, made his first class debut for Nottinghamshire v Sussex at Hove on July 7th, 8th and 9th 1892.

Born in Nottingham on July 4th, 1874, he was just 18, and the favourable impression he made, whilst adding 64 for the 10th wicket with M. Sherwin, seemed to foreshow a promising career. In fact his matches for Nottinghamshire were limited to three all in 1892.

He was described as a useful medium pace bowler, capital bat and slip field.

His name is rarely found in local matches and as far as could be discovered he had no professional engagements, so his cricket careers seems to have been very brief.

Arthur Shrewsbury died on October 6th, 1917.
