The First XI travelled to Maghull, looking to get back to winning ways.

They won the toss and decided to bat first. This did not look a good idea as they fell to 8 for 2 with both openers out. Then, however followed a stand of 141 between Paul Horton (who finished on 110 not out) and Australian Noah Olejniczak (54). When Noah was out, James Stirling (34 not out) joined Paul and the were able to put on an undefeated stand of 71 to enable a declaration of 220 for 3 in 54.2 overs.

In reply, Maghull produced an innings of "stops and starts". They, like Sefton, were 8 for 2 but put on 44 for the third wicket. Two wickets fell on 52 before a stand of 49 for the fifth wicket and 42 for the sixth. Sefton's spinners then began to take wickets and Maghull's last four wickets fell for 35 runs as Maghull were dismissed for 178 in the 41st over. Tom Spilsbury finished with 4 for 22, Noah Olejniczak 2 for 64 and earlier Jimmy Dixon took 3 for 25.

So it was 25 points for Sefton who are now second in the table with a home game against Colwyn Bay next week.

The Second XI welcomed Wigan to Sefton Park.

Wigan won the toss and decided to field first.

Sefton started rapidly with Kaash Patel (20) scoring four quick fours. After this wickets fell too quickly apart from a stand of 32 for sixth wicket between Scott Aitchison (24) and Sam Parkinson (14). Chris Mitchell scored 16 in 16 balls as Sefton were bowled out for 105 in 30 overs.

Wigan looked comfortable in their reply despite some excellent bowling from Naimat Karyab who took 2 for 22 in 13 overs. Andy Aitchison also took 2 for 22 but Wigan were able to pass the Sefton total with four wickets down in the 30th over.

The Third XI had a comfortable win over Liverpool's Thirds on the Lower Ground.

Batting first after winning the toss, Sefton scored 201 all out in 44.1 overs with Rhys Owens scoring 72 and James Daniels 28.

In reply, Ronan Brady took 3 for 17, Faisal Malikzai 4 for 31 and Tom Ball 2 for 28 to dismiss Liverpool for 79 in 33 overs.

The Fourth XI, still looking for their first win, travelled to play a strong Merseyside Sports and Cultural side.

The home side put on 97 for the first wicket and continued to score quickly to declare on 229 for 7 in 45 overs. Credit to spinner Hari Subramani for taking 4 for 60 off his 16 overs.

In reply, Sefton were dismissed for 53 in 27 overs with only 13-year-old wicketkeeper Ben Lester reaching double figures (12).

Well played Hari Subramani who took 4-60 from his 16 overs on a tough day for the 4th XI
