Short Shap shock for Langholm

Langholm suffered defeat by 58 runs in their Eden Valley Division One league match at Shap last Saturday.

The hosts made a total of 205 in the 40 overs, thanks mainly to a fine century by Stringer, while in reply, Langholm were all out for 147 in 34 overs.

Best in the Langholm bowling were Graham Park, who had three for 28, and Steve Johnstone, 4 for 42.

Both Shap bowlers had their outswingers going, and survival was hard for the visitors with Duncan Elliot (33) clocking the most runs, before misjudging a delivery to go out lbw.
