Clubs will be aware that, as part of the introductory message published following his election, the President consulted informally on the suggestion that, following views expressed at and following the SGM on February 22nd an additional clause might be added to the Competitions Sub-Committee Guidelines, approved at that Meeting, the effect of which would be to provide a “sanctions guideline” for offences relating the fielding of unregistered, as well as unqualified, players. This would not be formally a Rule of the Association – that change cannot be made until the AGM, on the proposal of the Rules Committee or three member clubs, - nor would it introduce any new offence or sanction not already prescribed in the Rules. If however approved, it would mean that – where any such breach is proved, the Competitions sub-Committee [or Management Committee on appeal] would normally be expected to award the match to the other team, unless the club being investigated was able to establish, to the civil standard of proof – more likely than not – that “exceptional” circumstances existed. It would therefore guide them in the exercise of their discretion, when choosing from the list of sanctions which the Rules already prescribed as available under Association Rule 6, as reiterated in the Sub-Committee Guidelines.

Dear friends and fellow cricket lovers,
I always thought, if given the opportunity I would prepare speech of few lines while taking over Presidency. However never in my dreams did I think that I would become President in such a dramatic fashion.
Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to serve Aberdeenshire Cricket Association (ACA) as its President. Born and brought up in Bombay and Mumbai, cricket has always been major part of my life. Hence I see this as an opportunity to give something back to the game we love from bottom of our hearts.

As Secretary of the Association I have now received from the Secretary of the ACA Competitions Sub-Committee, intimation of the outcome of the hearing held on February 2nd 2015 into the allegation that Bon Accord in the above match breached Association Rule 13a by fielding a player on trial, the Secretary of the Association not having been previously notified. This hearing was by a re-constituted Sub-Committee following the decision of the Management Committee on Appeal (12 September 2014) that the Guidelines under which Clubs at the 2013 AGM authorised the Management Committee to delegate its powers under Association Rules 6a [applicable in this case] and 6b could reasonably be interpreted as requiring an opportunity to be available for Bon Accord to present its case in person. Previous postings have detailed the legal advice taken by the Association to give effect to that decision, and the actions subsequently taken to achieve this.

As we head to the end of January and the cold spell has already overstayed its welcome we turn our minds to sunnier warmer days, which means that the fixtures for the forth coming season have to be prepared and your help is needed whether you are the incoming secretary or outgoing secretary of your club, please could any club whose ground will be unavailable during the season advise David Jones by 31st January (that’s less than a week away !!) your prompt response would be very much appreciated. Many thanks in advance

As you may already know Kemnay-Kintore (KKCC) has access to two grounds - one at Bogbeth and the other in Kintore - we're keen to ensure that both continue to be available for cricket in the coming years particularly as both centres of population grow and pressure exists throughout the NE and in particular the City for access to grounds.

In order to enable effect to be given to the decision of the Management Committee on Appeal, setting aside the determination of the Competitions Sub-Committee into an alleged breach of the Rules of Competition by Bon Accord CC, and requiring a fresh hearing to be held, the four members of the Sub-Committee ineligible because of club affiliation to hear that case – Messrs. S Anderson, J Bhalani, C Forbes and R Haider – have now – in line with the legal advice taken by the Management Committee - formally resigned from the Competitions Sub-Committee.
