Langholm dominant in six-wicket victory



Langholm made it two out of two with a six-wicket victory over Staffield.

Batting first on a typical green April wicket the visitors struggled to reach 57, with the Steele brothers both taking four wickets. Langholm chased down the target in 21.3 overs with the loss of four wickets, with four batsmen reaching double figures.

Langholm skipper Dave Steele won the toss and had no hesitation in putting Staffield into bat on the green track. Staffield found scoring difficult but held out the Langholm bowlers for nearly 10 overs till Tony Steele had Tuer LBW for 13 with score on 19.

This brought a couple of quick wickets, with Steele bowling Armstrong for five, and the dangerous Thomlinson caught behind by Duggan for 0, leaving the visitors 22 for three.

A further 10 was added before Steele had Bamber caught behind by Duggan for 11. At drinks Staffield were 32 for 4.

The next man to fall was Housby, caught in the slips off Graham Park by a diving Duncan Elliott. This left Staffield 39 for five. Dave Steele was in the attack now and he claimed the sixth wicket, bowling O’Neil for six with the score on 49. In his next over Elliott took a superb catch to dismiss Brown for nought, with the score still on 49.

Couperthwaite didn’t last long as he was bowled by Steele for nought with Staffield now 55 for eight. Telford was the next to go for 13, run out by Gregor Park after wandering out of his crease. The last man to fall was Blackburn, clean bowled again by Dave Steele for 0 with Staffield all out for 57.

Langholm opened with Gregor Park and Stuart Duggan. Conditions were not great with light drizzle falling, and the score had reached 6 when Park skied a catch to Helliwell off the bowling of Brown. Duncan Elliott now joined Duggan and they added 16 before Duggan fell LBW for 11 to Bamber.

Nicky Piszczykiewicz joined Elliot and they took the score to 32 when Elliott fell caught in the slips for a valuable 14. Graham Park was the next man in, and with Piszczykiewicz added 21 taking Langholm almost in sight of victory when Park played back and was bowled for 10. Victory was soon achieved though with Piszczykiewicz hitting the winning runs in the 22nd over leaving himself 16 not out.

Langholm are now top of the league on alphabetical order, and next week host Caldbeck 2nds.
