Clement Arthur Milton played in 84 games for Arsenal at right half and outside right, scoring 21 goals. After just twelve games for Arsenal, Milton was selected to play his only game for England when both Stanley Matthews and Tom Finney were injured. The match v Austria at Wembley, 28th November 1951, ended in a 2-2 draw.

Milton retired from football in 1955 to concentrate on his cricket career, playing for Gloucestershire & England 1948-1974 and captaining the County side in 1968. He played in six Test matches for England 1958-1959, scoring a century on his debut, against New Zealand, so becoming the first in twenty six years and remaining the last of twelve players who represented England at international level in both cricket and football.

On retiring from cricket in the 1970s he became a postman. Arthur Milton died in 2007
