Langholm in 
Appleby struggle

Langholm cricketers were in cup action on Sunday as they crashed to a heavy defeat away to premiership side Appleby.

Poor batting saw Langholm all out for only 46 in 13.3 overs in their first innings, while good work in the field by the visitors had the home side under pressure and they finished on 94 for 7 in 18 overs, still within touching distance for the Milntown men.

Unfortunately, the Langholm batting again struggled in the second innings and they finished the 18 overs on 64 for 9.

This left Langholm with a lead of only 16, which Appleby soon passed without loss, after six overs.
