************************************************************************************************************
It is with sadness that we announce the death of Kenneth MacLeod (Captain of Inverurie CC) during the match against Crathie on Saturday 28th May 2016. Our sincere condolences are with Kenny’s family and friends.
Kenny moved up to Aberdeenshire in 2011 from Paisley where he had been a long time player and  president of Kelburne Cricket Club and although his initial thought had been to concentrate on golf, his love for cricket soon drew him back to the game and he joined Inverurie for the 2012 season. He was an
 uncomplicated cricketer - see the ball and hit it straight, as hard as possible, and he certainly did that better than most. Off the field he was the best of company, always convivial and at the heart of the club socially as well as competitively. He took on the captaincy for the 2016 season and the team was undefeated going into the match against Crathie on the 28th of May. After a typically forthright innings, Kenny was taken ill with complications from his cardiomyopathy, as he left the field of play. It was of great comfort to his family to know that he received immediate professional attention and was given the best chance of survival. Kenny will be sadly missed.

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 Groats Road.

Drum Property Group today (26 May 2016) announces a unique partnership with Aberdeenshire Cricket Club to deliver an in-school cricket programme, Redball.

Initially working in four Aberdeen primary schools, 180 children aged nine to eleven will benefit from the opportunity to learn and play cricket. It is expected that for almost all children this will be a first experience of the sport.

wytbu8  May 29 2016 - 12:46am   

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.

Clubs are reminded that under Rule 17d "The Captains must provide the Umpires (or, in the event of there being no official Umpires, the opposing Captain) with a team list prior to the toss for innings."

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.

Just a wee follow-up from a recent e-mail regarding workshops Supporting Coaches & Volunteer Management for Clubs which will be offered free of charge to clubs and communities across Scotland. (There is commitment to deliver 40 workshops in 2016/17 with priority given to community sport hubs, DCI clubs & priority clubs identified by regional sporting networks.)

Subsequent to preparation of the fixture list for the season, we have been advised that – due to University commitments – while the ground at Kings College will now be available on June 11th and 25th, the May Festival means that it will not be available on May 14, 21 or 28.  We have been advised that Duthie Park also will not be available on June 11, and that the recent inclement weather means that the remedial work scheduled for Allan Park has also been further delayed by a minimum of a month.

wytbu8  May 8 2016 - 4:20pm   

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.

Good afternoon Mr Jones

Thank you for your email. The extract from the user group meeting is correct.  As Mr S McBain, TLG Contracts Manager is currently on annual leave I would like to clarify this with him upon his return.  We will require authorisation from yourself and AECL as contacts should this proceed. This will apply only when TLG deem the pitches unplayable.

wytbu8  May 7 2016 - 8:51am   

As part of your clubs inclusion in the `Thriving Clubs` Programme, I would like to invite you to register for the `CoolCricket` Workshop for Young Cricket Ambassadors and Social Media Champions delivered by Sports Marketing Network and Cricket Scotland.

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.

Good afternoon

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.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FROM DAVID JONES (ACA Secretary) and IAN STEPHEN (ACA Treasurer)

wytbu8  Apr 26 2016 - 7:40am   

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.

wytbu8  Apr 26 2016 - 7:26am   

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.

While the following is of particular relevance to clubs operating a junior section, it is hoped that the undernoted will be of some interest to all clubs to show you what we are doing in Cricket Scotland to raise the awareness of protecting young and vulnerable people playing cricket in Scotland.

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.
