Arising from various issues over the season to date, the Management Committee wishes to remind all clubs that the names under which players are recorded in official scoring records, including results reported under Rule 20, must be (at least the initial of) their preferred forename, and their legal family/surname, as these were specified for registration with the Association under Rule 11.
Sanctions may in future be applied if this is not followed without legitimate excuse.

Leaders Bon Accord face a doubleheader against last season's champions Ellon at the weekend as the two sides meet in the league on Saturday, and in the cup on Sunday in a repeat of last year's Preliminary round draw.
Elsewhere in Grade 1 Cults travel to play St Ronald at
In Grade 2 table-topping Crathie have a local Deeside derby at home to Banchory, while Queens Cross/Stoneywood-Dyce will hope for a recovery of form at home to Gordonians, and Knightriders may carry too much fire-power for Caledonian.
At Grade 3 level league competitions are suspended for a week, as clubs meet in the first round of the Reid Cup, the losers from which will this year get a second chance of silverware in the Johnston Rose Bowl in a month's time. Academy, Portcullis and Kemnay-Kintore will be among those expected to make progress, while 2nd Ellon face a tough task against 2nd Knightriders.
Sunday's programme, in addition to the Bon Accord Ellon encounter sees another attempt to play the Queens Cross/Stoneywood-Dyce and Gordonians in the Bon Accord cup game, which was washed out last weekend.

Following investigation of a potential breach of rule the Management Committee of the Association at its meeting on 15 May 2013 reversed the result of the match between
A separate protest submitted by Ellon that 2nd St Ronald might in the same game have fielded a player ineligible for registration with the Association, but of which no more specific evidence was provided in their letter of protest, was dismissed. All players were found both to be eligible for registration, and to have been properly registered in accordance with the Rules. However a protest that St Ronald had breached Rule 11 by using names in the scorebook and/or reporting results which differed from those under which they were registered with the Association was upheld. All clubs are being reminded of the requirements of Rule 11 in this regard, and that sanctions may be applied if it is breached in future without good cause.

Torrential rain once again took a hand as all games in the Grades, other than the Grade 3 encounter between 3rd AGSFP’s and 2nd Mannofield, which had previously been re-scheduled for Sunday, and the game between Academy and 3rd Gordonians for which the visitors were unable to raise a team, finished as void fixtures. In Grade 3, with 16 teams, this means that the teams concerned will not now meet this season. However in Grades 1 and 2, the reverse fixtures will have to be re-scheduled if washed out on August 17th 2013

Bon Accord remain the only team with an unblemished record in Grade 1 following the latest round of fixtures on Saturday. However, this was a feat they achieved away from the field of play as their game at Stonehaven became one of those to be voided due to intermittent rain, on a day when Cults, despite a half-century from Graeme Gillanders, lost to
In Grade 2 Crathie retained their 100 per cent record at home to Gordonians while Knightriders, whose game was another to be void, also remain on full points. Fraserburgh overcame Queens Cross/Stoneywood Dyce to record their first win since stepping up from Grade 3 at Harlaw; while Banchory recorded the first winning draw result under the revised points system, as Cults-Artisans failed to achieve the second innings par score required to activate draw points.
In Grade 3 Portcullis had a walkover against 3rd Gordonians while Kemnay-Kintore also remain on maximum points following their defeat of Dunecht, as do Academy following the abandonment of their game against 2nd Knightriders and 2nd Banchory following their walkover against 2nd Methlick.

The season's first individual landmarks of centuries and a hat-trick were recorded at the weekend on a day when Ellon's grip on their Grade 1 title received another knock, as Mannofield edged to victory by two wickets at the Gordon Park, after promising innings for the home side from former Kintore and Bon Accord players Satyamurthy Guruwadayarahalli and Brian Veldsman. Both Bon Accord and Cults meanwhile maintained their hundred per cent records following their games at the Links and Allan Park, despite a five-wicket haul from Inverurie's Garry Coutts, and 1st St Ronald won out over their Second string at King's College, thanks to another half-century by Rehan Haider. Debojyoti Barman recorded the season's first hat-trick in Cults' defeat of Stonehaven for whom Jonathan van der Ruit contributed another four wickets. AGSFP’s just clung on to draw against Methlick at Rubislaw.
In Grade 2 a century from Tariq Butt on his return to Queens Cross saw the home side run out victors over Banchory; but an undefeated 114 from Gordonians' Phanidar Prattipati was not enough to set a winning total against Huntly for whom Liam Ferguson and Alex Brooks both recorded half-centuries. The outcome of this match will however again be subject to possible protest relating to player ineligibility. Crathie's good opening to the season continued, with Bob McAra netting a further seven wickets as Cults-Artisans were shot out for just 20; while Crescent won the battle between two of the promoted sides at the Duthie Park, with a century from Abrar Ahmed; and Knightriders recorded another win over Fraserburgh.
In Grade 3, Kemnay-Kintore, anchored by a half-century from Gareth Prosser, beat 2nd Ellon; while a century from Sandy Richards saw 2nd Banchory overcome the combined clubs' second string at
