Cragg made a single first-class appearance for Lancashire against Worcestershire at New Road, Worcester, in the 1908 County Championship. Lancashire won the toss and elected to bat first, making 217 all out, with Cragg opening the batting and scoring a single run before he was dismissed by Robert Burrows. Worcestershire then made 362 all out in their first-innings, to which Lancashire responded to in their second-innings by making 378 all out, with Cragg this time batting at number six, from where he scored 9 runs before he was dismissed by Ted Arnold. Worcestershire reached their target of 233 with nine wickets to spare. This was his only major appearance for Lancashire. He later joined Cheshire, making his debut for the county in the 1912 Minor Counties Championship against Northumberland. He made three further appearances for the county in that season, before returning to play for it after World War I. He made a single Minor Counties Championship appearance in 1920 against Glamorgan, before making a single appearance the following season against the Lancashire Second XI. His final appearance came in 1923 against the same opposition.

He died at Manchester, on 27 July 1979. His grandson, Richard Cragg, later played first-class cricket for Cambridge University.
