Attention in Divisions 2 to 4 of the Aberdeenshire Grades will focus over the next fortnight on the first round of the various cup competitions – which with some clubs having both first and second teams drawn at home will this year be spread over two weekends.
Promotions and relegations mean that the winners of all three cups last year will be unable to defend their trophies, with tie of the day in the Bon Accord Cup being a early reprise of last week’s league encounter between Methlick, whose early season form suggests that they could be on course for a league-cup double, and Inverurie, who also dropped from the top league at the end of last season. 2nd Knight Riders meantime take on Academy at

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.

It is sad to report that, whilst fielding, a player had his bag stolen. Clubs are reminded that when fielding to secure any valuables and to be vigilant at all times, particularly when using facilities where the public have free access.

It was first blood to title holders Bon Accord as they took on close rivals Cults-Artisans in their first meeting between the two sides for the season at the
Bon Accord’s victory was founded on a solid total of 213, Fazal Awan and Nawaz Mirza both notching half-centuries – a total which Cults-Artisans were unable to overhaul despite a half-century from Aqeel Ajazi and 48 from Himanshu Saraswat.

The AACO, though independent in terms of governance, is the body recognised by the ACA under Section 8 of its Constitution as the provider of independent umpires for matches under the jurisdiction of the Association.
It also interfaces with other cricket leagues organising matches within the ACA area of the former Grampian Region.
Its status is therefore that it has close official links with the ACA – just as does SCOA with Cricket Scotland – advises it on matters relating to the interpretation of the laws, and has two votes at General Meetings of the ACA. To avoid any confusion on disciplinary matters, if they were to go to appeal, it has no direct representation on the Management Committee, but Vai Bode has indicated it would be given right of audience on any matter it wished to refer.

Intermittent showers, sleet and hail stones did not prevent the majority of games being completed on the opening day of the new Grades cricket season, on a day when no less than seven centuries were recorded.
Closest result came at Kellands Park as tenants Mannofield eased out AGSFPs by just two runs, Graeme Johnston top-scoring for the City club’s third string in a low-scoring match.

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.
