After a three-week break, Langholm had dropped down to third place in the Eden Valley League Division Two, but defeated Stainton 2nds.

Stainton were reduced to 34 for three, with Duncan Elliott taking two wickets.

The bowling attack was taken up by Andrew Paisley and Steven Johnstone and the former dismissed Harrison for five, with the score on 43. Not to be outdone, Johnstone got in on the act and took two wickets.

Johnstone claimed his third victim, as Holiday reached 50 and Stainton finished on 120 from their 40 overs. 
Langholm found themselves a wicket down with no runs scored when Elliott was clean-bowled by Welch.

Gregor Park and Gregor Masterton began to repair the damage with the former to the fore and the score passed 50, but Gregor Park was then bowled by Graham for 41. Masterton hit several boundaries, including three sixes, but was eventually caught after a good knock of 58 as Langholm ran out victors by seven wickets.
