Ivor has been Brentham Scorer for 53 seasons and scored over 800 League matches. His astonishing achievements over the years has been recognised by one award after another.

He is an Honorary Vice President of both the Middlesex County Cricket League and Brentham Club. In 2014, he was awarded the Middlesex Outstanding Service Cricket Award as well as the UK Outstanding Sports Official prize. He was nominated in 2005 and 2014 for a cricketing OSCA, presented at Lord's, finishing runner up on the latter occasion. Perhaps the most prized opportunity was being invited to score at Lord's for a MCC v CCC match in 2015 to add to his appearance at Lord's with Brentham in 1972.
