Gala lost out to Melrose in the Border Under-14 Cup final, despite a late rally.

Finlay Rutherford top-scored for the home side, retiring on 30, but the Melrose bowling meant Gala struggled to 71 for 4 from their 20 overs. In reply, Melrose were doing well and got the score to within two runs of their target when they suffered a mini-collapse, but Gaddie held his nerve to hit the winning runs in the 17th over to see Melrose home.
