After the successful T20 win at Liverpool the night before, the First XI welcomed Spring View to Sefton Park. The visitors won the toss and asked Sefton to bat first.

Openers Ben Percival and Haroon Khan made a good start putting on 63 for the first wicket before Ben was out for 20. Kaash Patel was dismissed first ball. Paull Horton was then in to steady the inning and he put on 52 in a fifth wicket partnership with Richie Forsyth (29).

Paul was eventually out for 40 as the last five wickets put on 48 runs.

Sefton were all out for 185 in 57.3 overs

Spring View's innings began fairly quickly but worries that the total may not be enough began to subside after the third wicket fell with the score on 50. The remaining seven wickets fell for 42 runs with Spring View being dismissed for 92 in the 26th over.

Abhishek Jagan finished with 3 for 33, Daniel Kelly 3 for 12 and the left arm spin of Peter Kelly claimed 4 for 22.

The Second XI crossed the river to play New Brighton where the home side won the toss and decided to bat first.

After losing the first wicket with the score on three, they then put on 61 for the second and continued to make steady progress before losing late wickets when chasing a total. In the end they declared on 210 for 9 with their opener Sean Dednam finishing on 87 not out.

Tom Spilsbury finished with 4 for 48 and Andy Aitchison 3 for 35.

In reply, Sefton put on 32 for the first wicket. Opener Chris Bellis top scored for Sefton with 45 and was dismissed with the score on 117 for 5. The remaining wickets fell without any batter reaching the 20s and Sefton were dismissed for 161 in the 31st over.

The Third XI travelled to Crosby to play Northern Thirds. They won the toss and decided to bat first. The decision proved totally justified as Navi Singh made 82, Paul Morris scored 55, Rhys Owens 60, and Alex Woods 24 not out to enable Sefton to declare on 255 for 5 off 41 overs.

In reply, another fine bowling performance by James Woods, who took 7 for 56, enabled Sefton to dismiss Northern for 137 in 31.4 overs.

The Fourth XI played Northern's Fourth's on the Lower Ground.

Northern batted first and declared on 191 for 5 in 43 overs with James Orme taking 2 for 20

Sefton's reply began reasonably with Harry Wright scoring 29, Tom Rushton 33 and James Orme 22 but they were eventually dismissed for 121.  Former Sefton tweaker Ben Rispin was amongst the wickets for Northern.

This was a fairly strong Fourth XI that Sefton were able to field but shows the task ahead following their promotion.
