Gala cricketers have been kitted out in new playing shirts thanks to the Engineering Design Bureau.

The Galashiels structural engineering consultancy has sponsored the strips for the 1st and 2nd XIs, which will carry the logo of the Channel House firm.

Gala CC chairman Jim Johnston said: “The club has had the same match-day shirts for the last three years so to get new playing kit will be a big boost to the players.

“We rely on our sponsors to help us cover our ever-increasing costs, so the support of Engineering Design Bureau is hugely appreciated and the shirts will be worn with pride by the squad.”

David Paterson of Engineering Design Bureau added: “My family have been connected to Gala Cricket Club for many years.

“As a result, I am delighted to come on board and sponsor the club and wish the teams every success for the coming season.”

Gala CC is still looking for sponsors for the new season – any company or individual who can support the club can find out more from Neil Crooks (email neil.crooks@sky.com, phone 01896 755849) or they can download a sponsorship brochure from www.intheteam.com/galacricket
