Carlisle Cricket Club have spoken of their pride in teenage paceman Stan McAlindon after he made his County Championship debut.

McAlindon, 18, was included by Durham for his First Class debut in their game against Derbyshire.

Former Carlisle starlet McAlindon has impressed for Durham's academy and was handed his first XI change at the Riverside.

And the promising teenager marked his landmark outing with two wickets.

He dismissed Sam Conners and Toby Pettman to help Durham mop up the tail and end with figures of two for 63 from his 13.1 overs.

Conners proved McAlindon's first championship victim as he was clean bowled by the Cumbrian.

It came as the north east side dismissed Derbyshire for 283 in their first innings.

McAlindon's Durham team-mates in the LV= County Championship game include England opener Alex Lees.

The promising teenager has been on Durham's books for several years and, as well as impressing for the county's second XI, has also represented Chester-le-Street.
