An exclusive for the L&DCC website by a special correspondent

Pride of place this weekend goes to ORMSKIRK, crowning their all conquering season with the ECB National KO Final against Wanstead and Snaresbrook, from the Essex Premier League, at Chelmsford, Essex. Having stormed to the Liverpool Gin Liverpool Competition Premier Title, the Brook Lane outfit featured in the Area finals of the ECB T20 competition and after two attempts to play the Lancashire KO final eventually shared the trophy with Lowerhouse. The club has also seen success at 2nd and 3rd team level with both teams capturing Divison titles and the 3rds lifting both the Mike Leddy and Embee trophies. 

On the eve of the Ormskirk's biggest ever cricketing weekend, skipper Matt Glayzer reported that all the preparations were complete and his team were raring to go. "Everyone is looking forward to it" he said "and we will give it our best shot. Wanstead are obviously a good side and have reached the final before. We have treated every game on its merits all season and will do the same in Chelmsford". Glayzer disclosed that Josh Bohannon has been added to the eleven that contested the Lancs KO at Old Trafford with Sunday's starting line-up to be decided on the day. 

Meanwhile on Saturday, supporters of Formby, Southport and Birkdale and Ainsdale will have an anxious afternoon as each of their teams travel away knowing that at around 7pm, two of them will be playing next year in Division 1. Their places are already taken by Rainford and Highfield one of whom will finish the day as champions of Division 1. In Division 2, Liverpool are already promoted as champions  but in the best advert yet for competitive pyramid cricket, Wavertree and Spring View start the day separated by just one point and a place in Division 1 awaits either them or Maghull.

Below is a full list of Saturday fixtures - fully officialled up by the MCUA. A magnificent effort on the last day of the season by our umpires who deserve our sincerest thanks for all that they do.
