Tough times loom for Langholm

Having been promoted to Division One of the Eden Valley League after being undefeated last season, it looks like Langholm are going to find it much tougher, having lost both opening matches.

Their total of 98 at Shap last Saturday never really looked like being enough and although some spirited bowling gave them a slight chance, in the end the home side won by four wickets.

On the plus side, Gregor Park was in great batting form and hit 7 fours and 2 sixes in an innings of 68, but after he went, the visitors’ batting disintegrated and they were all out in the 30th over.

Langholm needed quick wickets but a catch was dropped in the first over.

The home side eventually passed the Langholm total to finish on 99 for 6. In the Langholm bowling, Johnstone had 2 for 11 and Elliott 2 for 32.
