A remarkable performance by Richie Conlan saw him score 170 not in 20 overs for the Second XI in their Chrysalis Cup game against Alder in Sefton Park. Sefton finished on 240 for 1 in a innings that saw Richie and Rickie Martin put on 174 for the first wicket with Rickie finishing on 56.

In reply Sefton bowled 9 bowlers as Alder finished on 77 for 7 in their 20 overs. Mark Chappell (2 for 12) and Connor Melia (2 for 5 ) took wickets.
