Friday’s and Saturday’s deluge put paid to any cricket, resulting in a complete washout of both Senior and Junior League Cup fixtures, leaving just three Eden Valley Cricket League Sunday League games to report on.

In the all-Scottish affair at Nunholm, Dumfries beat Langholm by five wickets. 

Batting first, Langholm (171/6) saw Bailey Donaldson (50 retired) and Graham Park (48) leading the way. 

Dumfries (172/5) got home with just five balls to spare. The consistent Adam Malik (53 retired) and Jacob Taylor (36 not out) saw them to their victory.

Carlisle's Academy (133/10), put into bat at Stainton, struggled with skipper Anthony Wilson (44) and Will Clark (25) best with the bat. Jude Hodson (2/3) and Ed Tallis (3/8) doing most the damage. 

Stainton (136/1) raced to victory with Tallis (50 retired) and Cameron Wilson (50 retired) putting on a century opening partnership.

Appleby Eden's 2nds travelled to Lanercost and shot the home side out for just 35 after they surprisingly chose to bat first. 

George Winder (5/10), Max Winder (3/14) and Tom Fisher (2/7) took the wickets. 

Appleby Eden (36/3) took just 6.4 overs to reach their target. 

Adam Altham scored (20) with Joshua Bell (3/9) doing his best for the home side.

Somewhat surprisingly, we are already a third of the way through the season. 

In the Premiership, champions Carlisle 2nds lead the table, chased by Caldbeck and a resurgent Scotby in third place. 

With only one relegated, Wigton 2nds, Rockcliffe and Temple Sowerby appear to be in most danger.

In Division One, Staffield are top followed by Edenhall and Langholm, with a game in hand, will enter the fray. 

Appleby Eden, having played all bar one fixture away, return home next week and will be looking to close the gap at the top. Patterdale look very vulnerable at the bottom with -5 points.

Division Two sees Nunwick in pole position, 15 points ahead of Gamblesby and Irthing Vale.

In the Sunday League, leaders Stainton host second-placed Appleby Eden's 2nds this Sunday. 

The result could determine the league but don’t discount Dumfries and Wigton 3rds.

The depression, which is responsible for the current weather conditions, hopefully will move before the weekend. 

We have already lost enough cricket this season.
