As some of you may know Methlick cc were holding a Kwik Cricket festival at Lairds on Sun the 24th July. Unfortunately due to a number of reasons including the rearranging of grades fixtures and the damage done to the outfield by the recent weather this will not be possible.
Methlick cc have rearrange this date and can confirm that will try for (weather permitting) the 7th of August for a 10:00 start (09:45 meet) at The Lairds in Methlick. Does this conflict with anyone's plans (club events etc)?

This weekend it seemed to be problems of holiday player non-availability that dominated the programme, rather than pitch or weather issues, as only 2 games were completed in Grade 3 and only 1 in Grade 4.
At the top of Grade 1 meantime Bon Accord’s progress towards the title continued unabated as, with yet another century from Fazal Awan, they comfortably disposed of Gordonians at Countesswells, while Mannofield strengthened their chances of grade 1 survival as they beat Lahore Karahi at the Duthie Park, and Cults-Artisans-StRonald recorded a 32-run victory over Ellon at the Links.

The weather gods once again had the final say in the Aberdeenshire Grades, as following a week of confusion in which the Management Committee tried their best to bring cup competitions back onto schedule, the vast majority of games finished up being void or scratched.
The scratchings included the remaining quarter-final of the Aberdeenshire Cup where Lahore Karahi scratched to Gordonians, rendering the changes agreed by the Committee to Saturday’s league programme, including bringing forward the game between Academy & Crescent, abortive; while at Grade 3 level arrangements for the Reid Cup Semi-final between Grampian & Siyapa remain unresolved, with the clubs still seemingly unable to agree a mutually acceptable date to replace the 7-day replay Rule which a majority of the Committee had earlier indicated that, in default of agreement, they would probably be required to enforce.

Clubs will be aware that last weekend’s Reid Cup semi-final between Grampian & Siyapa, and Sunday’s postponed Aberdeenshire Cup quarter-final between Lahore Karahi & Arrowdawn Gordonians were both washed out.
Under Association Rules the default date for these games to be rescheduled is within 7 days or at the discretion of the Management Committee, should clubs jointly approach the Committee with an acceptable alternative arrangement. To date no such submissions have been received.

Weather again took a hand in the Aberdeenshire Grades on Saturday, as a majority of the league games in Grade 1 finished as void; and affairs between the clubs will now need to be determined in the reverse fixtures scheduled for the final weekend of the season.
Those involved in the cup semi-finals proved however to be made of sterner stuff, preferring to finalise matters dodging the showers rather than have to play re-scheduled ties; and allowing participants in two of the three Cup Finals to be determined definitively at the first attempt.

I am writing to confirm that, following consultation, the Management Committee of the Aberdeenshire Cricket Association, exercising the powers given to it at the 2015 AGM, has nem con agreed by the necessary two-thirds majority of its total voting membership, that the qualification required by Rule 13i for players who have played in the current season in a higher Grade/level of cricket, or in a senior Saturday league outside of the Grades, to appear in the semi-final or final level of a cup competition, be reduced, in respect of the semi-final round of the Grade 3 & 4 (Reid & Johnston) Cups only from the current 3 games to 2. This decision is based on the earlier date of the semi-final rounds this season, and the number of games voided due to weather or scratchings in the first nine weeks of this season, effectively reducing the opportunity for achieving the previous qualification.

Notice has been received that due to problems with player & ground availability Cults St Ronald (2nd Cults) have decided to withdraw from Grade 3. Accordingly results & fixtures against them will now be void, and only one team will now be relegated to Grade 4 at the end of the season.

Waterlogged outfields from rain during the night and early in the day mean that a number of games in the Aberdeenshire Grades again had to be declared void at the weekend. This included a number for the second time, meaning that they will now need to be re-scheduled for the first available date.
Among these were the games at Links between Crescent and Knight Riders, which the teams were hoping to re-schedule for Sunday, and the game at Kintore between Cults-Artisans-St Ronald and Academy, which will now need to take place on Sunday July 3rd, assuming a pitch can be found. The Grade 1 game between Gordonians and Lahore Karahi was also off, but as the two teams met at the end of

Following the monsoon conditions of the past week it was unsurprising that a number of fixtures in the Aberdeenshire Grades again had to be declared void.
As well as the weather having set back the re-opening of a second square at the Duthie Park to replace the ground at Harlaw Road meantime closed due to safety considerations, ground conditions meant that play was ruled out on both Saturday & Sunday at Kings College, as well as a number of other grounds around the north east.

Following the recent shock news of the collapse & death of Inverurie’s captain, Kenny Macleod, during last week’s Bon Accord Cup game v Crathie, the Management Committee of the Association has agreed to request clubs that a minute’s silence in his memory should be observed at Grade fixtures scheduled for Saturday June 4th 2016 prior to the commencement of play; and would respectfully request that all Clubs should observe this.

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
