A cricket club have suffered the humiliation of being bowled out for just three runs.

Ten Wirral batsmen were out for ducks, only the number 11 (Connor Hobson) troubled the scorers, with the other runs coming from two leg byes. It left Wirral some way short of the 109 they needed to beat Haslington.

While it was an embarrassing loss, it was still not a world record lowest score. That went to Langport who were once dismissed for zero against Glastonbury in 1913.

Wirral Tweeted: “1st XI lost by 105 runs today... Sadly the opposition only scored 108!”

At one point the Cheshire League outfit were 0-8 after six overs before the pair of extras and Hobson - who finished one not out - dragged the innings out until the 10th over.
