Siddhu claims first century in Peebles win

A first hundred by Sid Siddhu helped Gala to a comfortable friendly win over Peebles County at Meigle Park.

Siddhu scored the ton off just 64 balls, notching 16 fours in his innings as Gala made 255 for five from their 30 overs.

Captain Josh Irvine was also in good form with 46 from 30 balls, while Jamie Crooks (37), Graeme Ormiston (25) and Callum Jenkins (15) also made good contributions.

Slater (2 for 61) and Caddick (2 for 53) were the best of the Peebles bowlers.

Peebles were missing a few regular players and struggled in their innings against a strong Gala attack.

They finished on 41 all out, with wickets shared amongst the bowlers, including an impressive 2 for 9 from young spinner Robbie Paterson.

Thanks to Peebles for the game.
