Kirk reach Lon­don fi­nal

Southport Visiter - - Visiter Life -

ORM­SKIRK have reached the fi­nal of the Royal Lon­don Club Cham­pi­onship and will at­tempt to be­come the first Liver­pool Gin Liver­pool Com­pe­ti­tion club to win this pres­ti­gious na­tional knock­out when they play Wanstead & Snares­brook at Chelms­ford on Sun­day, Septem­ber 17.

The Brook Lane side an­ni­hi­lated Wover­hamp­ton by eight wick­ets in the semi-fi­nal, bowl­ing out the Birm­ing­ham League side for 82 and then knock­ing the runs off with lit­tle fuss in 22.3 overs.

Scott Lees made the early break­throughs and fin­ished with fig­ures of 4-27.

But Jamie Barnes again proved his im­mense value to Matt Glayzer’s side by tak­ing 4-12.

Opener Andy Bay­butt made 38 not out as Orm­skirk strolled to vic­tory while Ge­orge Lavelle was un­beaten on 22 when the win was clinched.
