Orrell Red Triangle were the visitors, confident after gaining a vital win last week.

Sefton Park's spinners then came into the action and after conceding early runs slowed the run rate down and took some wickets. Orrell were eventually dismissed for 222 in 54.1 overs with Huzaifa Zubair taking 2 for 32, Raheem Kasser 4 for 83, Kemar Smith 2 for 39 and Mark Chappell 2 for 19.


In Reply Sefton put on 14 for the first wicket but then lost wickets steadily, eventually being dismissed for 77 in 36.4 overs. Scott Aitchison scored 16 in 87 balls and Michael Row 12 in 30 ball to offer most resistance.

The Second XI travelled to play a New Brighton side who were desperate for points.

Sefton won the toss and decided to bat first. At 77 for 2, they were in a decent position thanks to James Stirling scoring 32 and James Daniels 22. After this, apart from 18 by Leo Spilsbury, the batting fell apart and they were dismissed for 110 in 51 overs.

New Brighton started with an opening stand of 84 and passed the Sefton total with two wickets down in the 21st over.


No game for the Thirds, Liverpool said that the pitch was unfit.


The Fourth XI played Bootle's Thirds in a top of the table battle. Bootle batted first and were dismissed for 107 in 29 overs with Sidney James taking 3 for 16, Jamie Bowman 3 for 5 and Ronan Brady 2 for 37.

Sefton did not find the reply easy and only another remarkable performance by a Spilsbury, this time younger brother Tom steered them to victory. He scored 70 not out as Sefton passed the Bootle total with 7 wickets down.
