Nine-wicket defeat



LANGHOLM 2nds began their campaign in the Sunday league with a nine-wicket defeat to Appleby 2nds.
Being bowled out for 30 was not the greatest start to the season but a lot of lessons can be learned.
Skipper Ross Rae won the toss and elected to bat. The experienced pair of Graham Park and Stuart Duggan took to the crease.
After three balls, Park was back in the clubhouse, clean-bowled by Winder to some severe inswing. The remaining young batsmen mostly had no answer to Winder and five of the six were out for ducks, leaving the score on 2 for 5 after three overs.
Only Duggan and Chris Tait showed any resistance, adding 16 for the sixth wicket before Duggan was bowled by Atkinson for 11.
Winder claimed two more to take his total to 6 in the next over, leaving Langholm on 18 for 8.
Langholm’s young tail, Hughie Donaldson, Brady Wilson and Ryan Johnstone, added 12 before Langholm were bowled out for 30.
Winder finished with 6 for 11 and was almost unplayable with his inswing,
Appleby began their reply and took this slowly early on against Donaldson and Johnstone. The result was never in doubt but Langholm claimed a wicket when Aidan Wilson, with his first ball in two years after breaking his wrist, clean-bowled A Beckwith for 2.
This was not a great start but it did expose some defensive issues. Hopefully, they can be ironed out for this Sunday.
Langholm U15s got a great result away to Lanercost, chasing down 121 for the loss of only two wickets.
Jack Henderson won the toss and elected to bowl, which may well have led to Langholm winning the game.
Corey Park clean-bowled Bradshaw for 0 but the batsmen soon got stuck into some wayward bowling. Wood made 20 and Mitcheson 32 before he retired.
Wickets then fell quickly, including two direct hit run-outs. Lanercost were bowled out for 121, of which 35 were wides, an area to improve. Park had the best figures of 3 for 21 from 4 overs.
The wicket takers were Brady Wilson (2), Jake Park and Tom Henderson, one each. There were catches for Danny Tait (2), Hughie Donaldson and Chris Coates.
Langholm opened with Hughie Donaldson and Henderson. With the score on 7, Henderson was clean-bowled by Mitchelson for 1.
Corey Park and Donaldson started slowly but, after seeing off the Lanercost opening bowlers, the run rate increased. They passed 50 in the 10th over and took the score to 78 before Donaldson was bowled for 25, an innings which included two fours and a five.
Brady Wilson joined Park and the runs continued to flow, with Brady to the fore. They passed the Lanercost score in the 18th over with a Wilson four.
He finished on 31, which included four 4s and a6. Corey batted for an impressive 16 overs for his 21 which included one 4.
