Comfortable win over Langholm

A COMFORTABLE win over Langholm took Gala U18 to the next round of the Scottish Cup.

Having been put in to bat, the Meigle Park youngsters scored 117. After the early loss of Rory Hancock for five, Graham Ormiston and Josh Irvine put on a good partnership before Ormiston was caught and bowled for 23. Irvine continued to progress but was eventually caught for 53. The Gala innings closed on 117 for 5.

Langholm struggled to score at the required rate and after Robbie Pringle picked up two wickets in the fifth over, it looked like an uphill struggle for the visitors.
