League Champions and Treble Winners 3rd XI lost at Wallasey; Ormskirk 81ao, Sam Hepke 34. Wallasey 82-2, Nicky Rout 2-15
1st XI and a large travelling group of supporters made the journey to The County Ground, Chelmsford for the Royal London National Cup Final against Wanstead & Snaresbrook, but unfortunately lost by just 12 runs in a pulsating final.
Limiting the "Herons" to only 159 was a great achievement as a total of over 200 looked possible, with Tom Hartley starring with 2-25 and a fantastic catch. In reply, the run rate never got away but key wickets fell at the wrong time to leave 14 from the last two overs. A classy 40 from Mike Jones and a captain's knock of 34 from Matt Glayzer brought the team agonisingly close.
