Hi all,

The ongoing covid-19 situation, and the consequent suspension of all cricket by Cricket Scotland until 1st June at least, will obviously curtail the 2020 cricket season, and it may well be the case that we have no cricket at all. The trustees will review the position as and when updated advice is received from Cricket Scotland, but to give clubs clarity, we initially propose to cut down to a 9 week season, starting on 4th July. Existing published league fixtures from this date will be retained, subject to pitches remaining available and fit for play. The trustees will liaise with all pitch providers, and fixtures will be adjusted as and if necessary.

In the event that cricket becomes viable in June, we would if possible, look to play the initial rounds of our cups on a knockout basis on Saturdays prior to the commencement of league fixtures.

Our intention would be to concentrate on our core fixtures, and whilst we will keep the position under review, the Turriff Cup and 7's may not take place in 2020.

This is all subject to our being able to reinstate a proportion of our ball order.
Clubs may wish not to renew their public liability insurance until we know cricket will be played.

No subscription fee notes will be issued to clubs until we have a definite start to cricket, and these will be adjusted to reflect the reduced season.

Given the ongoing impact on the hospitality sector, and doubts as to whether we will have a cricket season or not, the Grades Dinner has been suspended.

Regards

Paul Gray

The Grade 1, 2 and 3 fixtures are now available on the new website under the Leagues tab - http://nescricket.org/

As usual these are subject to minor changes should pitch providers advise us of unexpected unavailability. The gaps in the Grade 2 and Grade 3 fixtures have been allocated for cup games, 3 mini league matches and the semi finals. These will be posted in the Cups section on the new website very soon.

With AGSFP CC stalwart Chris Clelland confirming that he will be leaving Aberdeen on the 27th of March, Grammar will be welcoming all to the club on Saturday 21st of March to say one more thanks to him for all of his hard work and to wish him and his family well in their future endeavours. We will be gathering in the main bar of the Grammar Former Pupils’ Club at 1730.

We're sure that Chris would appreciate seeing anyone there that can make it, and if anyone wishes to get in touch please feel free to let us know on secretary@aberdeencricket.com so we can pass on your goodwill.

A big thank you to those who came along to our joint fundraising quiz night with CLAN on Wednesday. £425 was raised for the NESC SCIO. In terms of the quiz itself, Portcullis brought along the most attendees,and left with an array of raffle prizes, including numerous tickets for Pittodrie this Saturday! The phrase 'better to be lucky than good' was heard! It was a rerun of the Aberdeenshire Cup final when the results were announced, but this time around Gordonians shaded it from Inverurie. Many thanks to the Ashvale and all those who helped organise the event, particularly Neil Martin from CLAN.
 
Many thanks to the 30 people who attended the Introduction to Umpiring Course at Mannofield on Tuesday. An enjoyable and educational experience was had by all, and thanks are due to Aberdeenshire for hosting the course, and a well deserved round of applause to the tutors, Steve Scott and Peter Redhead on a very professional presentation.

The draw for the 2020 CS Challenge Cup took place yesterday and the 4 local participants managed to avoid any perceived minnows! AGSFPs and Bon Accord could potentially meet in the quarter finals, but they have arduous away trips to quality opponents to negotiate before they can even contemplate that. Round 1 sees Bons having a 310 mile round trip to Helensburgh, who narrowly beat Gordonians at the same venue at the same stage last season. AGSFPs will add 40 miles to the round trip figure of Bons as they go to Kelso. Kelso were runners up in the ESCA Championship in 2018 and both our local sides will be carrying the underdog tag with them on their travels.
 
Gordonians picked up a home draw in round 1, but they would have preferred to avoid the current CS Challenge Cup holders Strathmore who beat them in the SPCU NE Championship at Countesswells last season.
 
Huntly are back in the competition, but they will do well to get through an away tie to a resurgent Freuchie. It is now 35 years since Freuchie famously won the National Village Cup Final at Lords, and they will have one eye on a potential money spinning quarter final tie against neighbours Falkland. Huntly have the talent to cause an upset, but all 4 of our local sides will be up against it when the 10th May eventually arrives.
