Melrose beat Gala by four runs


GALA Under-13s just lost out to Melrose in a tight encounter at Meigle Park in an early evening fixture last week.

The visitors batted first and were restricted to 69 for their 20 overs, with Alex Hastings, Charlie Edwardson and Finlay Rutherford picking up a wicket each.

In reply, Rutherford led the way with a fine 28 after the home side had lost Irvine and Halls for single-figure scores, but Gala could not quite reach their target, falling just short in an entertaining contest.
