Sunday 20th August...Defeat in Mike Leddy Cup Final

The Third XI played their Mike Leddy Cup Final at Ormskirk after the game was called off through rain two weeks earlier with Sefton Park in a strong position.

Sefton Park won the toss and asked Ormskirk to bat first. They bowled them out for 177, one ball short of the 40 overs. Zubair Ali finished with 4 for 30 and Austin Ventre 2 for 32. In reply, Sefton went from 21 without loss to 23 for 3. Michael Row (28) and Andy Dickinson (17) then put on 43 for the fourth wicket but at 81 for 6, there was still a lot to be done. Neil Disley (32) and Austin Ventre (24) put on 46 for the seventh wicket but with overs running out Sefton had to chase the runs and they were eventually bowled out for 148 in the 39th over.

Next week, Sunday 27th August, they play in the Finals Day of the Embee Trophy at New Brighton.
