Tributes have been paid to a popular former cricketer who died when he was hit by a train last week.

Trevor Wilmot, 41, died when he was struck by a train just north of Central Milton Keynes station last Wednesday morning.

He lived with his wife and two teenage children in Old Stratford.

Trevor moved to the city from South Africa in the 1990s and first played his cricket at Bletchley Town before moving on to Stony Stratrord where he enjoyed a spell as captain.

“Those who played under Trevor will remember the enthusiasm, fairness and calm with which he led the side,” said a message on the Stony Stratford Cricket Club website.

“After he finished playing, Trevor was still a regular visitor to the club with his children, who have clearly inherited his love of the sport.

“Trevor will be sadly missed by all those at the club who knew him and had the pleasure of playing alongside him. Our thoughts are with his family at this very sad time.”

Former Bletchley captain James Clark also paid tribute to Trevor, describing him as a great batsman, great coach, and great bloke.”
