Defining a place in the league  table
Monday 13th September 2021

Following Saturday's ECB Premier League matches, Southport and Birkdale and Bootle each have 175 pts and occupy tenth and eleventh places respectively.

Positions in leagues where teams have equal points are determined as follows:-

1.  most points, if equal
2.  most wins, if equal
3.  most batting points, if equal
4.  most bowling points, if equal
5.  most number of points obtained in matches between the respective teams during the season.

re: item 5 above, Bootle lead 32-14
29/05/2021 at Wadham Road, Bootle (25 pts), Southport and Birkdale (7 pts)
28/08/2021 at Trafalgar Road, Southport and Birkdale (7 pts), Bootle (7 pts)

But the qualification won't go past item 3, batting points, see below.

Going into the final round of matches on Saturday, both teams have registered 4 wins.

Southport and Birkdale have 38 batting points and 47 bowling points, whilst Bootle have 26 batting points and 44 bowling points.

Southport and Birkdale have advantage with batting points so it comes down to the basic fact that, for Bootle to avoid relegation from the ECB Premier League for the first time in their history, they have to pick up more points against Rainhill at Wadham Road than Southport and Birkdale do at Leigh.

It the teams finish their matches level on points, Bootle will join their 2nd XI in their respective First Divisions next season and Southport and Birkdale will live to fight another year in the ECB Premier League.
