The School was delighted to be able to welcome back Tim Scrivener OI (1981), his father Michael Scrivener OI (1953) and Tim’s son Jack for the presentation of the new M.G. Scrivener Cup for 1st XI Bowler of the Year at the annual OI vs School cricket match which took place on Friday 22nd June. Tim has very generously supported cricket here, and his gift has been used to purchase new matting for the indoor cricket nets, a new honours board in the Holly Road pavilion to reflect those pupils who now achieve 100s with the bat and 5 wicket+ hauls with the ball in 1st XI matches, and the purchase of the cup names in honour of his father. Michael was an outstanding bowler at school, and in one memorable game took five wickets against The Perse. At lunch, George Offord from Year 11 presented Mr Scrivener Sr with a framed copy of the 1st XI team lists from 1953 and a printed record of all the matches he played in. A framed cricket print was also presented to Tim in recognition of his support of the School. Heather Bush, Development Director said: "It was wonderful to welcome three generations of the Scrivener family back to the School and to celebrate Michael’s outstanding bowling career. We are very grateful to Tim for supporting our cricketers both current and future with his gift, and we look forward to seeing the names go up on the honours board in the coming years.”
The Old Ipswichian side which included last year’s School Captain, Charlie Shepherd, got off to an electric start with Jack Knight smashing a quick-fire 50 off only 22 balls! With runs and wickets both in plentiful supply, the OI side finished on a respectable 260. After a wonderful lunch the 1st XI took up the challenge and despite the best efforts of the OIs, the School took the spoils with an outstanding seven wicket victory.
