Herbert Jenner played in great or first-class matches from 1825 to 1838. He played for Eton against Harrow in 1822, and in 1827, he captained Cambridge University in the inaugural university match played at Lord's Cricket Ground scoring forty five runs in the single innings out of as total of nine two and taking five wickets including the Oxford Captain, Charles Wordsworth. Jenner was an all-rounder. He kept wicket when not bowling and is said to have been one of the finest amateur wicketkeepers. Scores & Biographies quotes an old song:

'Free from all affectation young Jenner stands forth, And all who are judges acknowledge his worth; Wicket-keeper, or bowler, or batter, in allHe is good, but, perhaps, shines most wit the ball.'

In first-class cricket, he was associated with Cambridge University, Kent (1827-36) and MCC. He played for several predominantly amateur teams including the Gentlemen in the Gentlemen v Players series. When in 1836 he ceased playing at Lord's, it was said by Haygarth that the Gentlemen had lost one of the best players they ever had. (Scores & Biographies, Vol 1, p462). He was elected President of the M.C.C. in 1833 at the early age of twenty seven and in 1864 he adopted the additional surname of Fust.

Jenner played in first-class matches from 1825 to 1838. He scored 842 runs with a highest score of 75. He is credited with 75 wickets including a best performance of 7 in an innings; he took five wickets in an innings on at least five occasions. As a wicketkeeper, he took 24 catches and made 17 stumpings. Outliving by nearly twelve years all players in the university match of 1827, he died at Hill Court, Gloucestershire in 1904 in his 99th year. A oil portrait of Jenner, by Frank Cox, hangs in the pavilion at Lord's cricket ground.
