Restart Knockout results - week 1
Saturday 1st August 2020

The season finally got under way today in the form of the Restart Knockout.

There were two centuries. Former Leigh captain, Tom Foster, hit an unbeaten 125 in Birkenhead Park's comfortable victory against Caldy whilst at the Oval, former Wallasey captain Danny Beaver was dismissed for exactly 100 against old enemies, New Brighton.

Southport and Birkdale's Jack Carney bagged six victims behind the stumps (ct 4, st 2) against Ainsdale but ended up on the losing side.

Gavin Griffiths' pace proved to be too much for Bootle at Wadham Road. He took three wickets in four balls in his fourth over before seasoned campaigner Will Purser denied him a hat trick. Griffiths finished with 6-14 as Ormskirk skittled the home side for 71.
