It was hardy Sunny Southport yesterday morning indeed in was more like Shivering Southport! But the sun came out in the afternoon and a great day out was had despite the strong wind at Birkdale Cricket Ground.
Seeing Lancashire’s South African batsman Ashwell Prince get his double hundred was something I had not previously witnessed on a cricket ground and it was well deserved.
A lot of new faces in the Lancashire Team these days as they strive to get back into the 1st Division of the County Championship. Based on what I saw today they stand a good chance of doing it but I just hope it is not at the expense of my team Notts who seem to be doing all they can to get themselves relegated at present!
With Derbyshire 58 runs behind with 3 second innings wickets down the last day looks set up but unfortunately I can’t be there.
