A disappointing day all round for the three Sefton Park sides that played.

The First XI travelled to bottom of the table Caldy, won the toss and decided to bat first.

There was no signs of the problems to come as they reached 24 before the first wicket fell.After Ben Percival was dismissed for 19 with the score on 30, only George Lee (10) reached double figures and Sefton were dismissed for 58 in the 28th over.

In reply, Caldy reached the Sefton total in a remarkable four and a half overs without losing a wicket and the match was all over at 2:30pm

The Second Xi welcomed Colwyn Bay to Sefton Park with the Welsh side looking to overtake Formby at the top of the league. Colwyn Bay won the toss and decided to bat first.

They scored rapidly at first and it was left to the spinners to slow the run rate down. Tom Spilsbury took 3 for 40 and Andy Aitchison 3 for 35 as Colwyn Bay declared on 215 for 8

Sefton looked to have a chance of reaching the total with Richie Conlan in full flow but when he was dismissed for 29, the score was 56 for 4 and wickets fell steadily. Jack Hale scored 25 but Sefton were dismissed for 122 in 27 overs.

Liverpool's Thirds were the Third XI's opponents on the Lower Ground.

Liverpool batted first and amde a good start, reaching 60 before a wickets fell. Sefton bowlers then got to work and Chris Mitchell took 3 for 29, Ronan Brady 2 for 32 and Greg Monk 2 for 7 to dismiss Liverpool for 148 in 39 overs.

Sefton looked to have a good chance of winning but never got on top of the Liverpool bowlers and were dismissed for 102. Rhys Owen scored 36 but the next best was skipper Charlie Daniels with 15
