BBC Radio Lancashire's Scott Read:

"A day for debutants at Aigburth with two young Lancastarians making their first-class debuts, and both were in the action.

"Fast bowler Tom Bailey, 21, who hails from Preston, was handed the new ball and he responded by taking the first wicket - a fine delivery which nipped back in to bowl Zafar Ansari.

"Meanwhile, 18-year-old wicketkeeper Alex Davies from Blackburn took two catches to complete a good debut for him.

"The game is also seeing Steven Croft captaining the side for the first time in the Championship.

"Will he and his Surrey counterpart Gareth Batty agree to set something up for tomorrow's final day or are we heading for a tame draw?"
