Local rivals Liverpool were the visitors to Sefton Park for the First XI game.
Sefton won the toss and asked Liverpool to bat first. A century from former Sefton Park junior Jared Clein (106 not out) was the backbone of their innings of 240 for 7 declared in 57 overs.
The innings featured a stand of 98 for the sixth wicket. Jimmy Dixon finished with 3 for 40 and Paul Horton 2 for 31
Sefton's reply did not begin well with the score on 17 for 2 but a stand of 77 between Paul Horton (45) and Ben Percival steadied the innings. Ben Percival became the fifth wicket down as his 58 enabled him to become the third Sefton batter to pass 500 league runs for the season. Pruthvi Krishnamurthy was out for 23 and with 10 overs left it was left to the youngsters to draw the game. James Stirling finished with 12 not out and Leo Spilsbury 35 not out off 35 balls. Sefton finished on 185 for 6 in 50 overs as the game was drawn.
