Played at Ormskirk CC, Brook Ln, Ormskirk, L39 4RG

Match Report

On a much cooler but muggy day School won the toss and chose to bowl first.  XL got off to a good start with a 50 partnership from openers Mark Berry and Steve Harrison before the school struck with two quick wickets to remove them both.  Some tight bowling from Hepke in particular saw the school drag the run rate back and wickets fell at regular intervals. A partnership between Dave Bartholomew and Ian Farrington enabled XL to declare at 189 for 9.  The School set about the target in confident fashion with openers Hope and Connolly putting on 42 for the first wicket. XL bowling struggled against the school’s top order and despite a good effort from debutant Phil Jones the School chased down the total in 40 overs. The contributions of Crowley and Connolly – man of the match – steered the school home comfortably.

This was another great day’s cricket played in great spirit. Many thanks go to Chris Davis and his staff for a super day. A special mention must also go to all the parents who supported Chris and his team on the day and supplied the best catering of the season. We look forward with much anticipation to the fixture next year.
