All sides paid their respects for the passing of the Queen with a minutes silence. (below the Third XI)
The First XI welcomed Ainsdale to Sefton Park with both sides being in a mid table position. Sefton won the toss and asked the visitors to bat. They put on 21 for the first wicket and another 33 for the second but wickets do not appear to come quickly enough in recent weeks and they were able to declare on 221 for 6 in 55 overs.
In reply, a brisk 24 in 25 balls from opener Ben Percival made him the highest scoring Sefton batter. Huzaifa Zubair chipped in with 21 later in the order ans Ayan Madhu added 18 but they were dismissed for 109 in the 30th over.
They remain in eighth place in the table and face a visit to Rainford next week who need a win to gain promotion!!

The Second XI travelled to Wallasey, still not safe from relegation. Wallasey won the toss and decided to bat first. Dave Kelly opened the bowling and Tom Spilsbury quickly joined him. Between them they bowled out Wallasey for 90 in 37.3 overs with Dave Kelly taking 5 for 31 in 18.3 overs and Tom Spilsbury 5 for 37 in 16 overs.
In reply, Sefton did not find the wickets easy but 35 not in 24 balls from Rob Supria steered them to a six wicket victory in 15.4 overs
They are now 18 points clear from second to bottom Orrell Red Triangle and face a home game against Ormskirk next week.
The Third XI played Goodlass on the Lower Ground.
The visitors batted first and found the Sefton opening bowlers in great form, Chris Mitchell took 4 for 37 and Ronan Brady 6 for 34 to dismiss Goodlass for 100 in 40.4 overs.
