The First XI made the short journey to play Old Xaverians.

Sefton won the toss and decided to bat first. An opening stand of 41 between Haroon Khan (24) and Chris Bellis (28) set them on their way and Chris was still there to take part in a stand of 51 for the third wicket with Paul Horton who was eventually out for 43. James Stirling then scored 32, taking part in a number partnerships one of 28 for the sixth wicket with Dave Kelly who scored 20 in 10 balls.

Sefton eventually declared on 177 for 9 in 55 overs.

In reply, Sefton opened the bowling with Peter Kelly and Abhishek Jagan. Eventually Peter bowled 17 overs, taking 5 for 35 with Abhishek claiming 3 for 26 as they bowled out Old Xavs for 106 in 35.5 overs.

So it was 23 points for Sefton which keeps them on top of the table and looking forward to the visit of Liverpool to Sefton Park next week.

The Second XI after achieving their first win of the season last week welcomed Leigh to Sefton Park. Leigh won the toss and decided to bat first.

Two early wickets for Naimat Karyab left the visitors on 4 for 2 but a stand of 71 put them in a better position but they continued to lose wickets after that and were eventually bowled out for 164 in 45.2 overs. Naimat finished with 2 for 36, Jake Rigby 2 for 49 Raj Bhardwaj 2 for 33and Jack Lavery 2 for 13.

The backbone of the Sefton reply was a stand of 74 for the third wicket between Nathan Paul (50 in 41 balls) and Matt Young (40). Sam Parkinson scored a valuable 20 runs and Sefton passed the Leigh total with seven wickets down in 33.1 overs. So a valuable 25 points for Sefton.

The Third XI Played New Brighton's Third XI on the Lower Ground. The visitors won the toss and decided to field first.

A stand of 80 for the second wicket between Alex Woods (39) and James Daniels (who went on to make 69) gave the team a good start. Ronan Brady scored 23 and there were excellent innings from juniors Dan Cuthbert (19) and Ben Lester (12 not out) as Sefton were able to declare on 205 for 8 in 42 overs.

In reply New Brighton looked to be in with a chance but a run out from a brilliant throw by James Daniels swung the game in Sefton's favour and New Brighton were dismissed for 128 in 27 overs with James Woods taking 5 for 47 and Liam Tolladay 3 for 48.

The Fourth XI travelled to play Northern's Thirds.

Sefton batted first and were all out for 56 with Scott Hawkes scoring a remarkable Bannerman-esque 35 of those. Northern knocked the runs off without losing a wicket.
