Broughton brought down by the men of Milntown

 
 
 

Club volunteers stepped up to make sure sodden pitch was playable

Despite two days of heavy rain resulting in a very wet pitch, Langholm’s last league match of the season took place on Saturday, thanks to the volunteers who made sure the pitch was playable and free from any standing water.
Although no further rain fell there was a very strong wind blowing over Milntown for the whole of the match and played its part in the proceedings.

Prior to the kick off there was a minute’s silence in memory of John G. Elliot the former player and member of the championship winning squad of 1959.

Langholm kicked off into the very strong wind and had to keep the ball in hand as much as possible as kicking was difficult due to the conditions. Broughton hoped to make use of the wind, but the home side did not allow them to settle and with Langholm putting pressure on the visitors defence it was Steve Nicol who went over went for Langholm first try after 12 minutes.
