Halls and Irvine show

Gala defeated St Boswells by 89 runs in their Border Under-13 League match at Meigle Park.

The home side got off to a flyer with Jack Halls and Robbie Irvine taking advantage of some loose bowling, with both batsmen eventually retiring.

Rory Brand also retired before the Villagers picked up the wickets of Ryan Legge and Kerr Halls, but Lawson Marr and Alex Hastings kept the scoreboard ticking over, taking Gala’s score to 120 at the end of their 20 overs.

In reply, St Boswells were content to occupy the crease and did so effectively in losing six wickets while scoring 31 from their 20 overs.
