Members and friends of Sefon Park Cricket Club Women gathered at Croxteth Drive recently to celebrate the women's section fifth anniversary.
The function room was packed, with standing room only, as guests heard how the section was started in October 2018 by Mark Boyns and Sara Begg, with just two members attending the first ever training session.
Since then the women's section has grown dramatically to its current level of 40 members, winning nine LDCC trophies along the way and most importantly creating a growing 'family' of women connected by cricket.
The future of the women's section is also bright with the huge growth of the girl's section with many committed and talented junior cricketers now on the pathway within the club. Paul Foulder, Sefton Park Cricket Club President, stated how delighted he was to see the growth of the women's section over the years, stating this was a key reason that the cricket club was able to survive and thrive.
Party guests watched a video montage of key moments in their five year history before the cutting of the cake by Frankie Morris.
There were further celebrations with the winners announced at the women's section's annual awards.
