So I went, yesterday in fact, and had a grand day out at the cricket.
Lancashire County Cricket Club have been on their annual visit to Birkdale Cricket Ground and it is always a delight to be there even though I support Nottinghamshire CCC. I went to watch the 3rd day’s play in the 4 day 1st Division County Championship match against Durham and took these photos:-
Click on the photos to enlarge them. By the way Lancashire were batting all day and Durham were fielding.
I found a shady spot under some trees by the railway line and had a lovely relaxing day out. It must have been a near capacity crowd, I don’t think I have ever seen so many people in Birkdale Cricket Ground. What’s more the weather was cracking the flags; real cricket weather in Sunny Southport.
The 5 photos are also on my Flickr pages at:-
