Clubs are reminded that the 2016 AGM of the Association is currently scheduled for Sunday 27 November 2016, venue and time to be confirmed.
Although the Management & Rules Committees will both be bringing forward proposals for Rule changes, clubs may also do so - provided always that notice of such proposals is submitted by 5pm on Thursday October 27, and are proposed by a minimum of 3 clubs. A consolidated list of proposals will be submitted thereafter, with 14 days permitted for clubs to submit amendments. Clubs considering proposals are however encouraged, if they feel it would be helpful, to make initial contact with the Association Secretary on issues of drafting. The Management Committee will be proposing that in addition to changes affecting season 2017 a formal process of reviewing the entire Constitution in light of recent statutory requirements and to meet the requirements of charitable status, including separating out the Rules of Competition, be put in hand over the coming 12 months.

I know the season has just passed and it appears that I am pretty keen but I wish to get the wheels in motion to plan out this close season's use of Sheddocksley Indoor Nets. The reason I am posting so early is that some clubs have indicated with me that they would like to start the indoor practices sooner!

The cloud cover cleared away at Buckie to give the sides some glorious September sunshine for the first Grades Select match between the Associations for many years. Overnight rain gave the pitch a sporting look. The NoSCA side won the toss and had no hesitation in putting Grades Select in to bat. Win and Grover played out 2 opening maidens from Hough and Hussein as some tennis ball type bounce made batting difficult. A 3 from Win signalled the start of a flurry of runs, but it was no surprise when Grover edged behind for 4. The next over was eventful as Win fell after a classy 26 to the 2nd ball, immediately followed by Ahmed hitting a 4 first ball and then snicking behind the next ball to leave the Grades Select side 40 for 3. The sudden clatter of wickets had no effect on Perera as he cracked the final 2 balls of the over to the boundary. Perera put on 46 with Doley before he was out for a rapid 28. The introduction of Newlands put the brakes on the scoring and once he had Doley caught behind for 21 any chance of posting a big score looked unlikely. Pant top scored on 31 but wickets fell regularly as the Grades Select side were bowled out for 148 off 37.4 overs.

For the second time in a week a club who had hoped to complete their league season with a hundred per cent record fell at the final hurdle as champions Bon Accord went down by five wickets to runners-up AGSFPs in their final game at the Links. Ellon meantime warmed up for their cup final against Bon Accord on Sunday, with Jon Barrett taking four wickets as they comfortably disposed of Academy, while Mannofield celebrated retention of their Grade 1 status as they beat Crescent at Kings College, and Knight Riders beat relegated Gordonians at Groats Road, Rowan Vaduganathan top-scoring with an undefeated 70.

With Grades 2 to 4 now complete principal interest at the weekend will focus on whether Bon Accord can not only retain the Grade 1 title, but do so with a 100 percent record; and also complete a league-cup double in Sunday’s re-scheduled final of the Aberdeenshire Cup.
As last weekend in Grade 3 the final round of games pitches first against second as Bon Accord take on AGSFPs at the Links in what will be the first league meeting between the clubs this season, the reverse fixture – as that between Ellon and Academy – having been void. The league leaders will therefore be particularly anxious not to slip at the final hurdle, which saw Reid Cup winners Grampian, previously unbeaten, lose out for the Grade 3 league title in their final match against 2nd Knight Riders at Sheddocksley on Sunday by less than a percentage point, although in this case the destination of the league title seems assured irrespective on the outcome.

Although ground conditions meant that Sunday’s scheduled Aberdeenshire Cup Final was unable to proceed, and the Bon Accord Cup needed to be re-located from Methlick to Inverurie, Saturday’s rain relented just long enough for Saturday’s three finals to be completed, with Inverurie and Grampian both completing league-cup doubles.

Inverurie confirmed their promotion to Grade 1 in emphatic form as Chris Watson with an undefeated 143 and George Hadden combined to score 220 for an unbroken second wicket stand against third-placed Queens Cross-Stoneywood-Dyce at the Duthie Park, while in second place Kintore-Kemnay also confirmed their promotion with a win over Fraserburgh, whose points were nevertheless enough to see them along with Banchory, stabilise their positions in Grade 2 for a further year, and relegate 2nd AGSFPs, whose game was the latest at Methlick to fall void.

With the sun finally on their backs Grade 1 leaders Bon Accord, anchored by another century from the prolific Fazal Awan, took another step towards their cherished aim of finishing the Grade 1 season with a hundred per cent record as they defeated relegation-threatened Mannofield at the Links; while Gordonians, bolstered by a century from all-rounder Chamila Perera, recorded just their second victory of the season over a Cults-Artisans-St Ronald side, who being unable to play at their home ground find themselves occupying an unfamiliar lower mid-table position this year. Lahore Karahi meantime were pushed closer to Grade 2 as, despite a half-century from Kaleem Imran, they lost out to Academy at Sheddocksley, and there were also wins in the top league for AGSFPs and Crescent.

There were few surprises in another rain-affected programme in the top division of the Grades at the weekend, as Bon Accord comfortably beat Crescent to remain on course for the Grade 1 title, while at the foot Mannofield, despite losing to Academy following a century from the visitors’ Abhinav Kache, gained valuable points ahead of Lahore Karahi & Gordonians; and there was a comfortable win for AGSFPs over homeless Cults-Artisans-St Ronald at the Duthie Park.

This weekend it seemed to be problems of holiday player non-availability that dominated the programme, rather than pitch or weather issues, as only 2 games were completed in Grade 3 and only 1 in Grade 4.
At the top of Grade 1 meantime Bon Accord’s progress towards the title continued unabated as, with yet another century from Fazal Awan, they comfortably disposed of Gordonians at Countesswells, while Mannofield strengthened their chances of grade 1 survival as they beat Lahore Karahi at the Duthie Park, and Cults-Artisans-StRonald recorded a 32-run victory over Ellon at the Links.
