Officers of the Association have been in discussion over the best way forward for re-scheduling the matches washed out on Saturday July 4th, including the Grade 2 to 4 cup semi-finals, which now require to be replayed.
As virtually an entire fixture card has been lost, but has to be re-scheduled, it is felt that it will be easier if rescheduling on this occasion is implemented centrally rather than by a complex set of individual inter-club negotiations. This is particularly so as the programme requiring re-arrangement combines both league and cup games, with the latter needing to receive a degree of priority, and the complexities of ground availability this involves. Otherwise, given the number of games to be re-scheduled, it might have been simplest to move the programme en bloc to the end of the season.

Heavy rain overnight, and continuing into mid-afternoon, meant the washout of all cricket planned in the Aberdeenshire Grades on Saturday.
This posed particular problems for the fixture planners as the complete semi-final programme in Grades 2 to 4 now has to be re-scheduled, along with two games in Grade 1 where fixtures have been washed out on both occasions teams were due to meet this season.

There were few, if any, major surprises in the latest round of games in ACA Grade 1 as Bon Accord, Cults-Artisans and Ellon all had comfortable wins over teams from the lower half of the table, while Mannofield also ran out winners against AGSFPs, and a seven wicket haul from Crescent’s Vaibhav Gupta left Fraserburgh closer to an early return to the second tier.

The Association has been informed that, due to their continuing inability to assemble sufficient players, 2nd Kemnay/Kintore have felt it would be fairest on other teams in Grade 4 if they were to withdraw from that league for the remainder of the season. They hope that their efforts in junior development will enable them to apply for re-election for 2016.

A couple of individual all-round performances were the highlights of the latest round of games in ACA Grade 1 as a century and four wickets from Poongkannan Palaniyandi helped Knight Riders to a 22-run victory over AGSFPs at Rubislaw while four wickets and an innings of 95 from Rohan Vaishampayan saw Mannofield through to victory over Crescent in a high-scoring game at the University ground.

Persistent drizzle and heavier downpours in the afternoon meant that the majority of games in the top two divisions finished void, with only Mannofield in Grade 1 improving their position at the expense of Banchory.
In Grade 2 likewise just two positive results were reported as an undefeated half-century from Kumaraguru Thangamani helped 2nd AGSFPs to an eight-wicket win over Queens Cross/Stoneywood-Dyce, while a 54 and three wickets from Chamila Perera saw Gordonians inflict a first defeat of the season on Methlick. The game between Academy and 2nd Knight Riders was abandoned following disagreement over the condition of the outfield.

A rain-disrupted Grade 1 programme on Saturday saw Cults-Artisans improve their position following defeat of Fraserburgh, with a century from Himanshu Saraswat, while AGSFPs also moved up the table following a 26-run win over Lahore Karahi at Rubislaw. Leaders Bon Accord however retain their previous unblemished record, their game against Mannofield at the Links ending as void, as did Ellon’s game against Crescent. Knight Riders comfortably defeated Banchory at Groats Road.

Your Management Committee have a scheduled meeting on the 3rd June 2015 with the council that deal with the Links and Sheddocksley. We are keen to feedback what needs to be done to improve these facilities, in order to lend weight we would very much appreciate if you could write a short email paragraph (or longer if you like), that we could take to the council to show first hand what our members think of the facilities and what could be done to improve these facilities.
