Langholm lifted by Shap shooters

Langholm managed to ease relegation fears with a fine victory by eight wickets over fourth placed Shap at the Castleholm in fine weather on Saturday.

This was their fourth win in the Eden Valley League Division One this season and Langholm now sit mid-table.

Shap opted to bat on the damp wicket and ended their 40 overs on a total of 131 for eight.

Langholm had reached 24 when Elliott was bowled, and with only one more run added Chris Stewart was caught. Gregor Masterton and Gregor Park formed a strong partnership and were both still at the wicket when they passed the Shap total to finish on 133 for two.
