With rain falling, the First XI travelled to play Bootle. After a late start, Sefton won the toss and decided to field. With Bootle on 6 for 3 after 6 overs, this seemed a good idea. However, they put on 84 for the fourth wicket and 69 for the fifth. Sefton then picked up wickets and eventually,their top scorer, Joshua Adrady was last man out being run out by Chris Bellis with his score on 99. Bootle finished on 190 all out in 52.1 overs.

With further rain falling, Sefton were able to bat for 35 overs, Chris Bellis scored 52 and Paul Horton 56 not out as Sefton reached 146 for 2 and a win probably taken away from the by the rain.

They soon lost early wickets and were 11 for 3., Eventually, they reached 86 for 9 and then put on 44 for the lat wicket to reach 130 all out in 4.4 overs.
