Pixies win Malcolm Milne Trophy

Local cricket legend, former teacher at Pocklington School and OP, Malcolm Milne (55-62), was remembered when Pocklington School 1st XI played Pocklington Pixies for the trophy in his name at the school ground on Sunday 8 May 2022. 

The Pixies, the invitation team with Pocklington School associations, included club cricketers from Pocklington, Londesborough Park, Yapham, Woodhouse Grange and Dunnington. 

Against them the School made a slower start, with opener Harry Jackson (30) the mainstay. They lost wickets trying to accelerate, with spinner George Baty (3-15) taking three in an over, but Harry Holland (47 not out) led the comeback and Henry Green weighed in with a hard hit 20 at the end to take the School to 166-9. 

When the Pixies were 57-3 the game was nicely balanced with Harvey Laverack, the School’s leading bowler 2-19.  Adam lyer (96-06) and Jonty Atkinson (06-17) then came together and patiently built a match winning century stand that blossomed after tea.  Iyer was the senior partner, reaching 75 not out, and Atkinson added an unbeaten 40 as the Pixies reached their target at 167-3. 

Malcolm Milne was an outstanding all-rounder with Beverley, Londesborough Park and Pocklington Pixies, and a leading coach and mentor to generations of young cricketers. 

Pocklington School’s Director of Sport David Byas, recalled his immense contribution to School and community before handing over the Milne Trophy to Pixies’ team captain, Iyer.
