Gala youngsters get back to form

Gala Under-14s got back to winning ways with a six-wicket victory over Kelso at Meigle Park.

The Gala bowlers were able to keep their visitors in check, despite only taking four wickets as Kelso were restricted to 64 from their 20 overs, with Jamie Crooks picking up two wickets and Harris Rutherford and Murray Wilson one each.

In reply, Gala made a cautious start as Kelso’s opening attack was not conducive to big scoring, but Crooks added impetus before retiring, having reached 30.

A six from Ben Ballantyne saw the hosts reach their target with five overs to spare.
