The Car Hire Liverpool Airport branch hope there is a solution to the potential eviction of a local cricket club, with the recent special match at the club being a force in getting support to help it survive.
There has been a special match set up for a cricket club in Liverpool which is battling to save its 126-year-old history. Aigburth Cricket Club trustees have been told to leave their Southwood Road home by November, after receiving an eviction notice from the land owners.
But on Thursday evening a feast of high-tempo cricket was on offer to draw the support for the club. There were also raffle prizes on offer including a signed Lancashire jersey and tickets for a one day match at Old Trafford.
There has also been a petition set up to Liverpool council, which has received more than 5,000 signatures so far. Last nights event was free and it is hoped this event will have raised the chances of no future development of the land.
