In ironically the best weather of the summer champions Bon Accord confirmed their retention of the Grade 1 title, beating Mannofield at the County Ground with a century from Nawaz Mirza, while both Kemnay-Kintore and Portcullis were confirmed as winners of their respective grades as Turriff scratched their final fixture; and a number of games were agreed as to be left un-played, as a weather-disrupted league season came to an end.

On behalf of Aberdeenshire Cricket Association, my heartiest thanks to Methlick Cricket Club for organising a successful Aberdeenshire Cup finals at Lairds on 23rd August, 2015.

Grade 1 leaders and prospective 2015 champions Bon Accord’s hopes of completing the season with an unblemished record was brought to a halt in the last regular round of games for the season as an unbroken eighth-wicket partnership for AGSFPs from Rutwik Hegde and Vijay Vijapur saw them to a two-wicket victory in a low-scoring game at the Links. However with Cults-Artisans also going down to defeat against Crescent the destination of the title will remain unaffected, on a Saturday which also saw bottom-side Banchory record some late-season cheer against a weakened Ellon team, and Mannofield ran out expected winners against also-relegated Fraserburgh.

With the majority of the league issues now decided, attention in the Grades this weekend will focus on the showpiece of the Aberdeenshire Cup Final to be played on Sunday.
With Mannofield unavailable, this year’s final will take place at Methlick’s home ground of Lairds with current holders Ellon, who swept aside Bon Accord in last year’s final, seeking to retain the trophy against Cults-Artisans, who on this season’s league form will probably start favourites.

Persistent rain over the previous 48 hours, coupled with void games earlier in the season, means that Grade 1 is now likely to continue into overtime, with three of the scheduled five fixtures from Saturday’s programme now requiring to be re-scheduled for the first available date taking account of clubs’ outstanding cup commitments.

There were few surprises in the latest round of league games in the Aberdeenshire Grades, as Bon Accord remained on course to complete the season with a hundred per cent record, while at the other end of the table Banchory’s defeat to Fraserburgh effectively confirms the Deeside club’s relegation with two rounds of games yet to complete.

Brief interruptions for rain were not enough to prevent decisive victories in the finals of the Reid & Johnston Cups played at the weekend.
In the Grade 3 competition Kemnay-Kintore swept aside a youthful 2nd Gordonians team, declaring after 35 overs and then dismissing their opponents for just 35 to complete the first leg of a projected league-cup double; while Grampian capped their first season in the Grades dismissing Turriff for 83 after a steady start which had seen them reach 50 with just one wicket down as Immanuel Doss top-scored with 30 off 39 balls. An unbroken third-wicket stand between

Rule 13 of the Association, under which players with specified exceptions may be registered and play for only one club in a season, provides in sub-section (b) that players registered from clubs which withdraw from competition during the season, may re-register for another club. There is however no comparable provision to deal with players who may be left without a game following the withdrawal of a second or third team, particularly if this happens after closure of the transfer window - of which there have been 3 instances this season. Members of the Management Committee feel that, while Rules cannot currently be changed formally, this is a situation where an informal agreement would be appropriate, and should be sought, to ensure that individuals in this position are not deprived of the possibility to play.

Though an improvement in overhead conditions allowed a majority of matches in the Aberdeenshire Grades to go ahead on Saturday, the heavy rain on Friday morning meant that wickets could not be provided at Cults, Sheddocksley, Methlick or Crathie.
At the top of Grade 1 however Bon Accord maintained their 100 per recent record, another undefeated half-century from the prolific Fazal Awan, and 59 from Andy Win, setting them on route to a six-wicket win over Crescent at Kings College, while Mannofield aided by a five wicket haul by Adrian Neill tightened their grip on third place defeating Ellon at the Gordon Park. Neither Fraserburgh nor Banchory were able to win however, re-enforcing their fears of relegation.

The game at Sheddocksley on Saturday 18th July 2015 between Grampian CC V Portcullis has been cancelled due to the waterlogged ground conditions.

3rd AGSFPs 16 year old Schoolboy Rajaa Monnapillai’s bowling was instrumental in the draw last week as he took 4 of the Siyapa scalps for just 23 runs, he also held his own with the bat as he scored 17 including 3 fours showing good temperament in a tense situation.

Bon Accord’s chances of retaining the Grade 1 title for a further season were strengthened on Saturday as they completed a second league victory for the season over closest rivals Cults-Artisans at the Links. Despite having only a modest total of 143 to chase, based largely round an undefeated 43 from

Heavy rain overnight, and continuing into mid-afternoon, meant the washout of all cricket planned in the Aberdeenshire Grades on Saturday.
This posed particular problems for the fixture planners as the complete semi-final programme in Grades 2 to 4 now has to be re-scheduled, along with two games in Grade 1 where fixtures have been washed out on both occasions teams were due to meet this season.
