Last season’s champions Bon Accord once again now sit supreme ahead of all at the top of Grade 1 following their defeat of Academy in their winner-take all game at Sheddocksley, where Fazal Awan again led the way with an innings of 131 followed by three wickets; while AGSFPs unexpectedly lost to Crescent at the Links following an undefeated innings of 145 for the home team’s Abrar Ahmed. Elsewhere Ellon gained further valuable points winning their home game against Lahore Karahi, while Mannofield and Gordonians found themselves left with a blank weekend following the Council’s decision to suspend all sporting activity scheduled for the Harlaw Road playing field, and their inability to offer an alternative location. Homeless Cults-Artisans-St Ronald’s moderate run of form continued as they lost to Knight Riders at

All three of Bon Accord, Academy and AGSFPs ran out winners on Saturday to leave the three sides locked on maximum points at the top of Grade 1, while Kemnay-Kintore’s start to the season since stepping up to Grade 2 was brought to an abrupt end as Inverurie ran out eight wicket winners at Kellands Park, and Grampian beat rivals Siyapa in the game of the day in Grade 3.

Results of the latest round of games in the Aberdeenshire Grades have confirmed the pre-season prediction that the extension of Win-Lose cricket this year to all grades could well result in an increased gap between teams at the top and bottom of the league in all divisions.
In Grade 1 three sides, Bon Accord, Academy and AGSFPs, remain on maximum points following their latest wins, while Mannofield and Ellon meantime occupy the two relegation spots with Lahore Karahi having moved up to eighth behind Crescent following their victory over the County Club’s Third Eleven, Imran Kaleem falling one run short of a century for the Kings College-based side, despite Mannofield’s Stuart Horne responding with an innings of 109 as his side fell 59 runs short in a high-scoring encounter switched to the ground at Harlaw. For AGSFPs Karan Anand top-scored with 116 and also took three wickets as they overcame fifth-placed Knight Riders at Rubislaw.

It was first blood to last season’s champions Bon Accord over close rivals Cults-Artisans-St Ronald as the two sides clashed for the first time at this year in a game relocated to the Burnett Park at Banchory, as remedial work to the Allan Park following last December’s flooding slipped further into the future.

Despite much improved weather on Saturday, damage done to pitches during the previous week meant that barely half of games scheduled for the opening weekend of the Grades cricket season resulted in positive outcomes.
Last season’s Grade 1 champions, Bon Accord, however gave early notice that they are unlikely to release their grip on the league as, with Nawaz Mirza and Fazal Awan once again leading the way, they comfortably beat Ellon at the Links, while at Kings College Hirupam Doly recorded the season’s first century as promoted Gordonians beat Lahore Karahi, and AGSFPs made the most of home advantage against Mannofield at Rubislaw.

I write to advise you that the Links Cricket ground will increase in usage this season due to pitch booking requirements by leagues. As requested and noted in the users meeting held on 30 September 2016, ACA asked that the end wicket is not used, therefore, can I ask that notification is given to all teams that due care and attention should be applied during matches so that wickets (6) can be functional throughout the season.

Apologies all just received this note from Sport Aberdeen:
Thanks for your emails and apologies for not being in touch recently.
Unfortunately, the Grants are on hold at the moment and will be reviewed in view of the ‘Strategy for an Active Aberdeen’ which is in the process of being written. I will be in contact soon with all the RDM’s to consult on a new Sports Grant Scheme. It will be nearer August/September time before the new scheme is launched.

I regret to advise you that the workshops below will now NOT take place as scheduled due to lack of interest. I suspect that there is already enough going on at this time of year.
I intend to reschedule these to post season 2016 perhaps as a weekend coaching ‘conference’ style event.

At the Spring Meeting of the Association, held on February 28th 2016, Clubs were advised of the changes to governance of Cricket Scotland, under which it was proposed that the regional Associations [including the ACA] would acquire the right each to nominate a non-executive director to the board of Cricket Scotland Holdings Limited, the top-level board which sets the strategic direction for Scottish cricket, and supervises the “lower” company, Cricket Scotland Limited, which actually manages the grant funding the sport receives from ICC, ECB and Sport Scotland. The Executive agreed that time constraints meant that the nomination of a director on this initial occasion should be delegated to the Management Committee of the Association, which has now discussed the matter.
