The under 13s turned in one of their poorest performances of the season as they went down 4-2 away to Tranent in the league. Lacking any intensity Gala went 4-0 down and despite 2 goals in the final 15 minutes from Tor McGillivray and Damien Konowalski, they didn't deserve anything more as both their decision making and passing were well below par. Some good performances despite the off day with Joe Charlton and Damien Konowalski playing well and captain Dougray Seggie leading by example and showing the guts and desire that was required by all. Next up is Leith Athletic at home on Sunday. Kick off at the 3G is 11am.
