It was with great sadness that Selkirk Cricket Club heard of the shocking death of Rowan Boland on Monday night. The young Gala cricketer collapsed while playing at Meigle Park earlier this week and, despite their best efforts, paramedics were unable to revive him.
Cricket was Rowan’s great passion. He was a member of the Gala under-13 side that won the Border League last season and he had also represented the Borders at Under-11 level.
Our condolences and sympathy to David, Elaine, Kristin and the rest of the Boland family and to everyone connected with Gala Cricket Club.
