A match between the above clubs was played at Langholm on Friday last. Carlisle played at a considerable disadvantage, having only thirteen men, while Langholm was fully and strongly represented. Consequently, the visitors were very hard pressed, and compelled frequently to touch down in self-defence. However, Langholm was unable to score either a try or goal. During the last quarter of an hour the Carlisle forwards rallied and made an effective charge, which resulted in a try obtained by Buck, this point deciding the match in favour of Carlisle. Prominent in their play for the Langholm team were William SCOTT (capt.), TURNBULL, LITTLE, and BURNETT; while for Carlisle, SPENCE, FISH, CROWTHER, STORDY, and MANN showed good play. The teams were:--
Langholm. -- BACK, J. ELLIOT; half backs, J. DAVIDSON, W. SCOTT; quarter backs, W. BELL, WM. SCOTT (capt.): forwards, CAMPBELL, McQUHART, TURNBULL, LITTLE, ANDERSON, BURNET, HALL, FLETCHER, BYERS, THOMPSON.
Carlisle. --Back, WESTMORLAND; half backs, CROWTHER and BATES; quarter backs, MAIN and MURRAY; forwards, SPENCE, BUCK (capt.), FISH, MAIN, STORDY, ORMISTON, BLACK, WILD.
