Saturday 12th August...Five wins again with the First XI leading the way at Skelmersdale

The First XI travelled to Skelmersdale and were asked to bat after losing the toss. Both openers, Richie Forsyth and Sean Vandome, were dismissed second ball without scoring. This was followed by a small recovery with James Baird (13) and Scott Aitchison (28) putting on 43 for the third wicket but when the score reached 101 for 7 in 32 overs, it looked like Sefton would be dismissed for a small total. At this point, however, Shakeem Clarke joined Daniel Kelly in the middle and 17 overs later Sefton were able to declare on 220 for 7 in 49 overs with Daniel Kelly finishing on 70 not out and Shakeem Clarke 69 not out.

The two batsman who had put on an undefeated 119 stand then opened the bowling for Sefton and soon had Skelmersdale in trouble at 7 for 4, they then reached 43 for 7 before putting on 59 for the eighth wicket. The last two wickets fell quickly and they were dismissed for 111 in 37.5 overs. Shakeem Clarke finished with 5 for 48 and Daniel Kelly 3 for 29 as Sefton moved up to fourth in the table.

The Second XI played Birkenhead Park at Sefton Park. Birkenhead Park batted first and were dismissed for 147 in 37.3 overs with Sean Kirk taking 4 for 33 in his second game for the club and Robin Brown taking 4 for 27. Sefton lost early wickets in reply but 18 from Rickie Martin and 28 from skipper Richie Conlan laid the basis for Luke Connolly (61 not out ) and Pete Ostler (21 not out) to lead them to a 6 wicket victory in 34.3 overs

Northern were dismissed for 71 in reply with Andy Dickinson taking 4 for 17, Matthew Forde 3 for 7 and Freddie Frost 2 for 21.
