Gala hold firm for first Sunday win

Gala secured their first win in the Border Sunday League this season with a three-wicket victory over Selkirk at Meigle Park.

Having been put in to bat first, the visitors were in danger of collapse when at 18 for 5, but Darren Fenton (41), supported by Kyle Easson (24 not out), managed to get the Souters up to 105 all out.

In reply, Gala lost Jack Halls to the second ball, but Kenny Paterson (20), Robbie Irvine (17), Robbie Pringle (22) and Craig Thomson (20) steadied the ship.

Gala lost two more wickets to leave the hosts 96 for 7, needing another 10 to win. But Max Hastings and Jason Anthony stayed calm to see them home.
