The First XI fixture that we normally look forward, the home game against Bootle was called off because the ground was unfit following the heavy rain during the week despite the best efforts of our volunteers.

The Second XI travelled to Formby, won the toss and decided to bat first. They took the score to 137 when the fourth wicket fell but only put on 25 for the next five wickets before a last wicket partnership of 23 between Jake Rigby (17 not out) and Sarhad Rustom took the score to 185 in 48.5 overs. There were good performances from Jeremy Rogers (30), Tom Spilsbury (44), Tom Rushton (21) and Raj Bhardwaj (35).

In reply, Formby reached 51 when the second wicket fell but then lost wickets and were 114 for 8 at the close for a drawn game with 40 overs bowled. Jake Rigby took 3 for 18.

The Third XI crossed the river to play Wallasey's Thirds.

The home side batted first and declared on 180 for 5.

In reply, Sefton held on for a draw, finishing on 102 for 9 with Chris Mitchell scoring 25, Ronan Brady 30 not out and James Daniels 29.

The Fourth XI played South Liverpool on the Lower Ground. The visitors won the toss and elected to bat first.

A fine bowling performance meant that they were dismissed for 104 in 31.3 overs with Naimat Karyab taking 3 for 16, Andy Aitchison 2 for 34 and Ian Dawes 2 for 13.

Unfortunately, that was about as good as it got for Sefton who were dismissed for just 29 in 20.3 overs with no player reaching double figures.
