Statistics for a winter's evening 1 - ECB Premier League
Sunday 9th January 2022

Before we start, this website will not be falling to left wing woke jargon and will continue to refer to batsmen as batsmen and references to chairmen will continue to be that. A chair is a piece of furniture and will remain so.

The website's statistics archive has been updated after an unexpected stoppage in proceedings over the last few months.

Leigh's Beech Walk ground headed the runs scored list (3478) whilst most wickets (171) were taken at Sefton Park.
