Sickener for Hardie in score draw

Gala Rovers 1

Leithen Rovers 1


A HORROR injury to Shaun Hardie overshadowed this clash between two of the favourites for the Division A title.

The Gala Rovers striker suffered a triple leg break during Saturday’s league match, which ended in a one-all draw.

The hosts, playing a competitive match on Netherdale’s 3G surface for the first time, took the lead through Jordan Steele on 33 minutes.

But the Innerleithen side responded with an equaliser a minute after half-time when Alan McMath set up Peter Shearlaw to score.

Gala are 12 points clear of fifth-placed Leithen at the top of the league, but the Tweeddale team have four games in hand.
