Against all odds
Saturday 9th August 2003

Attention all bookmakers, with your webmaster not being a betting person, I was wondering what the odds would have been on a club's 1st and 2nd XIs finishing their matches in a tie on the same day.

That is exactly what happened today with Huyton. Their 1st XI tied at Maghull, each side being dismissed for 181, whilst their 2nd XI declared at 180-8 and then dismissed Sefton Park for 180.

It would have been even bigger odds had all four totals been the same, ie 180 or 181.

Maybe our sponsors could help out here. Answers required please.
