Second XI performance of the day - Sam Holliday
Saturday 17th July 2021

All rounder Sam Holliday has tasted 1st XI cricket for several years at Lytham and Liverpool but is now content to be a member of Southport and Birkdale's 2nd XI.

They were entertaining Sefton Park at Trafalgar Road this afternoon. The visitors won the toss and elected to bat with Sam opening the bowling with Michael Lightbown for the Sandgrounders

They bowled unchanged for 31.4 overs as wickets tumbled with Sefton Park being dismissed for 69.

Sam had taken the first eight wickets to fall and a 10fer was on the cards until his bowling partner nipped in to take the wicket of David Kelly.

Sam took the last wicket to fall, that of opposing captain Andrew Aitchison, to finish with amazing figures of 15.4-10-36-9.

Well done Sam and a day to remember.
