In all, Livingstone smashed 37 fours and 27 sixes in his amazing 138-ball innings.
The 21-year-old, who made his Lancashire debut last season, hit his first hundred off just 47 deliveries, blasting 10 fours and nine sixes before moving to 150 just 20 balls later for the Cheshire County Premier League side in the National Club Knockout game against Caldy Cricket Club.
Livingstone, who is from Barrow, then moved to his treble hundred off 123 balls (31 fours, 22 sixes) with the score 444-6 before bringing up 350 just fourteen balls later (34 fours, 27 sixes).
"It is all a bit surreal. It hasn't sunk in yet but it is a very proud day and luckily my mum and dad were there to see it.
"Unfortunately I have got training with Lancashire at 10 o'clock in the morning, so I will be having an early night.
"But sometime in the near future, I will definitely be having a few drinks to celebrate."
