This looked to be a hard task for Sefton's fragile batting and so it proved to be.

Kemar Smith was the side's top scorer with 25 but they were eventually dismissed for 108 in 47.1 overs.

A special mention for fourteen year old wicketkeeper James Stirling who made his league debut and claimed a stumping and scored 8 runs in 53 balls.
