Pocklington is a market town and civil parish situated at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds in East
Yorkshire, 12 miles east of York and 22 miles from Hull. The town is bisected by the largely culverted
Pocklington Beck, a small brook that feeds into the Pocklington Canal. The 1086 Domesday Book states
it was the second largest settlement in Yorkshire after York itself. (population over 8,300)
Pocklington Town A.F.C. run four Saturday football teams with the first team competing in the Humber Premier League and the 2nds in the York League Division One. There is also an U19s team and girls' team. The club’s highest honour was in the 2012-13 season, when the 1st team won the Humber League Cup. The 2nds were York Division One champions in 2018-19 after finishing runners-up in the previous three seasons.

Pocklington played much better in the second half, but it was the visitors that extended their advantage when a mistake in midfield was finished off by Robertson.
The hosts made the scoreline look more respectable when Carl Brewer grabbed a late consolation goal.
