The First XI travelled to Newton le Willows, won the toss and decided to bat first. After losing both openers with the score on 17 wickets fell fairly regularly. Best stand of the day was for the fifth wicket between Huzaifa Zubair (13) and Daniel Kelly who top scored with 36. James Stirling was second highest scorer with 18 as Sefton were dismissed for 129 in 59.1 overs.

In reply, Newton le Willows put on 40 for the first wicket but then Jimmy Dixon struck and five wickets from him reduced the score to 42 for 4 and then 64 for 5. The home side found a backbone to their innings in Jack Morley who came in third wicket down and was still there on 54 not out as they lost wickets quickly but passed the Sefton total with 9 wickets down in 47 overs.

Jimmy Dixon finished with 5 for 32, Dan Kelly 2 for 19 and Ayan Madhu 2 for 10

The Second XI welcomed Newton le Willows to Sefton Park. Sefton won the toss and asked the visitors to field first. Asiri Gamage took the first three wickets to fall for 37 runs but it was the introduction of spinner Tom Spilsbury that really finished off the opposition as he took 5 for 25 in 10 overs. Mohammad Rafi chipped in with two wickets for 39 as Newton le Willows were dismissed for 103 in 34 overs.

Sefton's reply did not begin well as both openers were dismissed without scoring but Scott Aitchison (33) and Andrew Hale put on 67 for the third wicket and Andrew Hale and Mike Heaney 29 for the fourth. Andrew Hale finished on 51 not out as Sefton won by 6 wickets

The Third XI made the short trip to play Liverpool Thirds. A game that saw Sefton defeated despite a remarkable performance by Chris Mitchell

Sefton won the toss and decided to field. Chris then bowled throughout the Liverpool innings to finish with 7 for 60 in 20 overs as Liverpool were bowled out for 144 in 39.5 overs, a score that owed much to the 85 scored by their opener Sam Trumper.

In reply, Sefton's did not begin well and they found themselves on 50 for 6. Remarkably Chris Mitchell came to the wicket with the score on 50 and departed with the score on 104 for 7, having scored 48 off 33 balls in a stand of 54. Who was at the other end? Greg Monk moved his score from 2 to 6 during this stand but was still there on 22 not out as Sefton were dismissed for 127 in 36 overs
