The under 15s were hosts to Dunbar United in a league encounter at a sunny 3G Arena on Sunday and ground out a deserved 2-1 victory to take the three points. Despite having only 11 fit players and falling behind to an early goal, Gala dug deep and after a slow start, the football started flowing.

Next up is another home league game against Edinburgh South on Sunday, kick off 11.15a.m.
The under 16s were unfortunate to go down 3-1 away to Leith Athletic Colts on Sunday. This Sunday the team hosts Spartans FC Reds at the Netherdale 3G Arena. Kick off 2p.m.
