Wilson and Park lead Langholm to promotion

Langholm secured promotion to the Eden Valley Cricket League Division One with a fine batting display at Carleton last Saturday, writes John Smith.

Skipper Duncan Elliott won the toss and sent the home side in to bat and they finished on 171 for eight in the 40 overs.

Langholm knocked up their highest run chase of the year to win with seven wickets in hand and finish on 172 for 3 in just over 23 overs, with Euan Wilson reaching 74 and Gregor Park 50 not out.

The 50 by Gregor Park helped him reach his 5,000 runs for the 1st XI, only the third Langholm player on record to do so, and it included seven centuries and 25 half-centuries.
