Langholm thrash Threlkeld to go top of division

Langholm beat Threlkeld by six wickets

EDEN VALLEY LEAGUE DIVISION THREE

LANGHOLM secured a convincing victory in their away match against Threlkeld last Saturday to send them to the top of the table.

The visitors’ ground was damaged by floods just a few weeks ago and the match was played at Braithwaite.

The home side were all out for 65 and the Muckle Toon men passed the Threlkeld total to finish on 69 for 4 from 16 overs.

This win puts Langholm to the top of division three, after leaders Stainton suffered a surprise defeat, but they still have two matches in hand.
