Title now out of ­Langholm’s hands

Despite outscoring Carlisle Academy by 41 runs in the Eden Valley Division Two, the result saw Langholm gain only seven of the eight points on offer.

It means that the league title is out of their hands as Carlisle Academy will need to drop two points.

Langholm were put in to bat on a dry wicket and were all out for 193, with Gregor Park scoring a fantastic 130, supported by Gregor Masterton with 42. Carlisle Academy never looked in the hunt to chase the Langholm total as they posted 152 for 6. However, a win this weekend at Carleton would secure promotion for Langholm.
