Maroons set to take on Villagers in cup final

HARDLY surprisingly there wasn’t a lot happening around the region as far as cricket was concerned at the weekend with most pitches still bailing out following last week’s downpours.

Gala’s 1st XI League Cup match at Melrose on Saturday was cancelled due to a water-logged pitch.

Despite the cancellation, Gala still top Pool A of the competition and will host the final at Meigle Park on Saturday, August 27.

Their opponents are St Boswells, who made it through by edging out Selkirk and Kelso on runs made.

Gala’s 2nd XI match against Berwick on Sunday was cancelled as Berwick have withdrawn from the Reserve League.

The Under-13 Cup match between Gala and St Boswells was postponed again on Wednesday, but the young Villagers have conceded the tie so Gala are through to the semi-final. The Braw Lads are also in the semi-final of Under-15 Cup, but are awaiting confirmation of the match opponents and dates for both the age group matches.
