Langholm Cricket Club 1st XI v Patterdale on Sat 07 Sep 2019 at 14:00
Langholm Cricket Club Won by 6 wickets

Match report Langholm kept their slim chances of promotion alive with an utterly comprehensive win over Patterdale, bowling the visitors out for 21 with Dave Steele taking 6 wickets and Steven Johnstone 4 including a hat trick.

The Langholm skipper Graham Park won the toss and had no hesitation in bowling first. From the start the Patterdale batsmen looked in survival mode against some superb fast bowling from Dave Steele The first wicket fell with the score on 6 and from then on it was constant with Dave removing the first six batsmen with only 12 on the board, 5 of them clean bowled and the other Steven Johnstone took the catch. Johnstone himself got in the act cleaning up the tail, the last three coming in consecutive balls as he completed a hat trick the second by a Langholm bowler against Patterdale this season. Patterdale finished on 21 all out with Dave 6 for 4 and Spx 4 for 2.

Langholm gave some of their younger batsman and Gregor Park (who opened the batting with his son Jake) a chance but some decent bowling from the visitors saw the home side fall to 12 for 4. Nicky P along with John Bell saw Langholm home in the 10th over without the further loss of any more wickets.

This moves Langholm up to third in Division 1 with one game to play, a win next week against Stainton and a Edenhall loss would see the Castleholm men promoted to the Premier Division.
