Appleby fairly sorts out struggling Langholm 1sts: Cumbrian side uses home ground to their decisive advantage


APPLEBY cricketers took advantage of home ground to beat the Langholm 1st team by 89 runs last Saturday.
They won the toss and, choosing to bat, they posted 194 for 7. Langholm in reply could manage only 105.
The openers got off to a quick start, scoring 37 off 8 overs.
The breakthrough came when Brabbins fell for 22, pulling Andrew Paisley straight to Bailey Donaldson who took the catch.
The run rate started to slow and soon Tony Steele struck, clean-bowling Askew for 12 which left Appleby 43 for 2 in the 15th over.
Runs started to flow again but skipper Graham Park struck in consecutive overs.
Palmer fell, caught by Nicky Piszczykiewicz in the gulley for 11, then Davidson fell for 37 caught by Jack Pool with the score on 91.
Park claimed his third wicket, having Fothergill LBW for 8 with the score on 121 for 5.
The batsmen looked to increase the run rate and they added 36 in 5 overs before Duncan Elliott caught Ousby for 36 off Jack Pool’s bowling.
Pool clean-bowled Knowles for 1 to leave Appleby 158 for 7 in the 37th over.
In the remaining overs the home side added another 36 to finish on 194 for 7. The wicket takers were Park 3 for 27, Paisley 1 for 23, Donaldson 1 for 29, Pool 1 for 33 and Steele 1 for 42.
In reply Langholm had added 15 before the first wicket fell when Graham Park was LBW to a full toss for 8.
With the score on 28 a mini-collapse occurred when first Big Dunc was caught by Knowells off Davidson for 19.
Nicky P fell for 0 caught by Askew off Davidson and Tony Steele fell LBW to Palmer to a ball, which kept low, for 0. This left Langholm in deep trouble at 29 for 4.
Bailey Donaldson was joined by Stuart Duggan and they attempted a recovery adding 27 before Bailey was caught at third man by Lightfoot off Bellas for 17.
Wickets again tumbled when Ross Rae was out for 5, caught point by Lightfoot off Davidson. Chris Stewart was clean-bowled, giving Davidson his fifth wicket.
Steven Johnstone joined Duggan and these two added 23 before Johnstone was out for 13 bowled by J Davidson.
A couple of fours from Jack Pool saw him reach 8 before he was caught in the deep by Palmer off Bellas, with the score on 97 for 9.
A further 8 was added by Duggan and Andrew Paisley before Duggan fell to a Fothergill catch off Lightfoot’s bowling, leaving Langholm all out for 105.
After losing the toss and being asked to field, Langholm would probably have settled for Appleby scoring 194 but some poor shot selection led them to fall way short of the target.
