The Gala/Hawick Development Team were edged out by Leith
FABs 2nds in a close encounter in Edinburgh.
Gala/Hawick set their hosts a target of 93 on a difficult
Leith Links wicket, with Joey Sax-Simpson impressing with the bat making 26,
the highlight being a big six into the nearby allotments.
In response, the development team ran out Frincis with the
first ball of the game and continued to take wickets at regular intervals but
Leith captain Ahmad (33) led from the front to take his side to victory for the
loss of seven wickets.
Youngster Fergus Hastings took 3 for 19, while Alex Hastings
(1 for 14), Justin Tait (1 for 28) and Charis Scott (1 for 22) all bowled well.
