St Boswells beat Melrose by six wickets


St Boswells are on the brink of clinching the Sunday League following a comfortable win over Melrose.

Only Barry Scott, Kyle Paisley and Josh Loftus got into double figures for Melrose as they were bowled out for 81, with Rory Elms picked up three for 21.

After Elliot Ruthven was caught and bowled by Loftus, Thomas Goodman and Craig Wilson took their team to the edge of victory until both were dismissing, leaving Craig Marshall and Scott Turnbull to guide St Boswells home.
