The First XI made the long journey to Lytham with a side made weaker through holidays, injures and pop concerts.

.The home side won the toss and asked Sefton to bat first. Sefton's progress was slow and rain interrupted but 56 not by James Stirling, 29 by Luke Connolly and 34 not out by Daniel Kelly enabled them to reach 135 for 3 in 51 overs when the rain intervened.

The Second XI welcomed Rainford to Sefton Park. The visitors won the toss and decided to bat first going on to reach 135 for 6 when the rain prevented any more action

Chris Mitchell finished with 3 for 45

Highlight of the Third Xi game against Northern on the Lower Ground was the performance of Liam Tollady who took the first six Northern wickets, finishing with 6 for 28. Eventually, after stoppages for thunder and rain, Northern finished with 88 for 8.

Another journey was made by the Fourth XI who travelled to Wales to play Northop Hall. The home side batted first and reached 70 for 5 when the game ended. Sarah John finished with 3 for 25'

So all the Sefton Park sides ended with no decisions and five points each.
