The young rugby players of Galashiels are on the right track thanks to kit sponsorship from the Rowan Boland Memorial Trust (RBMT) and S & I Thomson.

Gala Wanderers under 18s squad received new tracksuits thanks to the donation from RBMT which provides grants to young sportspeople and clubs in the Borders.
