It is with sadness that we announce the passing away of Brian Christie. Brian played for the Aberdeen Lads Cricket Club for a number of years in the late 70s and 80s as a wicketkeeper, captain and top order batsman progressing from the second team to the first team. Brian was one half of the duo affectionately known as the ‘gruesome twosome’ along with Mike Harvey. In the late seventies when cricket helmets were not much more than a motorbike helmet painted white, were introduced for the first time, the gruesome twosome would take it in turns to wear it whilst fielding only two feet away from the batsman. Along with helmets came new bat technologically a superior bat called ‘big bertha’ which soon became Brian’s favored bat as it was the heaviest bat produced at the time allowing him to soon become one of the hardest and furthest hitting batsman. Brian stopped playing cricket to focus and excel on his Scottish Highland Football League refereeing career and Secretary for the Aberdeenshire & District Amateur Football Association.

Brian's funeral will take place at 9:30am on Friday 21st December at the West Chapel Crematorium.

Our sincere condolences to Brian’s family and Friends.

Now that winter is all too quickly spreading it’s all familiar blanket of cold around the area, it’s nice to report on something good, and positive about the game of cricket, taking place in warmer parts of the world.
 
Not only are England successfully wrapping up their three-match series in Sri Lanka, but we also have a young cricketer making her way in the world game, albeit on the other side of the globe.
 
Just in case you haven’t been following the fortunes of England’s women in the T20 World Cup, it may just have escaped your notice that Heather Knight’s young team, not only got to the final, but were helped along the way by a young lady, born and bred in Huntly.
 
Kirstie Gordon (22) a right handed bat, and left arm slow bowler, played her part, taking three wickets in one of the early games of the tournament, earning her the “man of the match” award in the process.
 
Kirstie is in fact well known to those at Cricket Scotland, having played in the qualifiers for Scotland before turning out for her adopted country. She currently plays for Loughborough, but one day, according to the young lady herself hopes to be back playing for Scotland in the not too distant future. In the meantime, she is happy to show off her silver medal, won in the West Indies.
 
If that doesn’t put a smile on your face on this first week of real winter chills, then I don’t know what will.

The 14-day deadline for circulation of AGM papers has now been reached, and a formal response from OSCR to the proposal to constitute the NE Scotland Cricket SCIO has yet to be received.
 
In light of this, and feedback from some member clubs that more time should be allowed for consideration of the draft SCIO operational rules, including changes to playing conditions, the interim SCIO trustees have decided that – as intimated in the President’s previous circular – the formal process for migration to the new model, be put back to what would have been the Spring Meeting of the Association at the end of February 2019.
 
A full presentation on the revised schedule will be given at the AGM on Sunday 2nd December 2018 at 3:00pm but principal changes of date/issues are as follows:

And so, another great night of entertainment, and catching up with old friends, is confined to the history books, leaving nothing but good memories of a well organised event, thanks to all the hard work of the committee.

In particular I would single out Tariq Butt, and Ian Stephen for their Herculean efforts in pulling it all together.

For of us who were privileged to be guests of the ACA Grades, it was a great pleasure to be able to participate in your celebrations, and see you pick up your hard won awards, including my own two, the junior one and the Press Player of the Year.

For your information, I shall have one more year of presenting the Junior of the Year Award, unless of course, I can be persuaded to carry my bat into my 80th year in 2020. We'll see about that one!
In the meantime, thank you for all your support over the season. It has been a genuine joy to be able to write about the game at all levels, both on your website, and through the good offices of the Aberdeen Press and Journal, and its sister paper the Evening Express.

Enjoy your winter break, but remember to turn out for the AGM on Sunday 2nd December 2018. It promises to be a big occasion for the Grades game. You owe it to yourselves to be there, indeed the long term future of the sport is on the line, but then it's none of my business, although I care deeply about where the game goes, and therefore hope my intrusion is helpful.
