Born in Huddersfield, Yorkshire, England, Greenwood, who was a professional cricketer, played his first-class cricket for Yorkshire from 1869 to 1880, but is most noted for going on tour to Australia with James Lillywhite's team in 1876-77. He played in both matches against Combined Australian teams, games which were later recognised as the first two Test matches.

Greenwood later suffered severely from rheumatism, and died of tuberculosis in Huddersfield in February 1889, aged 41. Provided by Wikipedia
