There is an old adage saying "If you want anything doing, do it yourself."

That is what happened on Saturday 3rd July 2021 when Paul Jenkins, needing one wicket for his 1000 in the Liverpool Competition, beat Mark Doyle's bat and bowled him in the match against Old Xaverians at Penrhyn Avenue.

It's been a long haul since Paul made his début for Northop Hall at Bootle on 10th May 1998. He was at the Smithy Lane club for five seasons and took 154 wickets in 91 matches. He also scored 530 runs and held 34 catches before moving along the North Wales coast to Colwyn Bay.

Now in his eighteenth season at 'The Bay' (2020 is excluded in these statistics owing to the L&DCC's season being suspended because of the Covid-19 pandemic), Paul has taken 848 wickets in 366 matches. To add to this, he has scored 2885 runs and held 106 catches.
