Cruise control for Melrose

Gala Under 14s were well beaten by Melrose, having been restricted to a disappointing 44 from their 20 overs, with Melrose cruising past with the loss of just one wicket.

Gala’s top order found scoring difficult early on, while continually finding the fielders when showing attacking intent.

For the visitors the wickets were shared, with King, G. Lindsay and Godfrey-Faussett collecting two each.

In reply Gala never looked like troubling the Melrose batsmen, with the top three all retiring, while Fraser Wilson picked up the only wicket.
