Arising from various issues over the season to date, the Management Committee wishes to remind all clubs that the names under which players are recorded in official scoring records, including results reported under Rule 20, must be (at least the initial of) their preferred forename, and their legal family/surname, as these were specified for registration with the Association under Rule 11.
Sanctions may in future be applied if this is not followed without legitimate excuse.

In Saturday's league programme, table-topping Bon Accord, with home advantage, will look to preserve their hundred per cent record at the Links against St Ronald; while Cults having dropped points last time out face promoted Methlick at Lairds.

Promoted Crescent take on Huntly at the
In Grade 3, 3rd Gordonians continue to have difficulty in raising a team against Academy, while last season's Grade 4 winners 2nd Ellon take on 2nd Kemnay-Kintore at

Bon Accord remain the only team with an unblemished record in Grade 1 following the latest round of fixtures on Saturday. However, this was a feat they achieved away from the field of play as their game at Stonehaven became one of those to be voided due to intermittent rain, on a day when Cults, despite a half-century from Graeme Gillanders, lost to
In Grade 2 Crathie retained their 100 per cent record at home to Gordonians while Knightriders, whose game was another to be void, also remain on full points. Fraserburgh overcame Queens Cross/Stoneywood Dyce to record their first win since stepping up from Grade 3 at Harlaw; while Banchory recorded the first winning draw result under the revised points system, as Cults-Artisans failed to achieve the second innings par score required to activate draw points.
In Grade 3 Portcullis had a walkover against 3rd Gordonians while Kemnay-Kintore also remain on maximum points following their defeat of Dunecht, as do Academy following the abandonment of their game against 2nd Knightriders and 2nd Banchory following their walkover against 2nd Methlick.

The season's first individual landmarks of centuries and a hat-trick were recorded at the weekend on a day when Ellon's grip on their Grade 1 title received another knock, as Mannofield edged to victory by two wickets at the Gordon Park, after promising innings for the home side from former Kintore and Bon Accord players Satyamurthy Guruwadayarahalli and Brian Veldsman. Both Bon Accord and Cults meanwhile maintained their hundred per cent records following their games at the Links and Allan Park, despite a five-wicket haul from Inverurie's Garry Coutts, and 1st St Ronald won out over their Second string at King's College, thanks to another half-century by Rehan Haider. Debojyoti Barman recorded the season's first hat-trick in Cults' defeat of Stonehaven for whom Jonathan van der Ruit contributed another four wickets. AGSFP’s just clung on to draw against Methlick at Rubislaw.
In Grade 2 a century from Tariq Butt on his return to Queens Cross saw the home side run out victors over Banchory; but an undefeated 114 from Gordonians' Phanidar Prattipati was not enough to set a winning total against Huntly for whom Liam Ferguson and Alex Brooks both recorded half-centuries. The outcome of this match will however again be subject to possible protest relating to player ineligibility. Crathie's good opening to the season continued, with Bob McAra netting a further seven wickets as Cults-Artisans were shot out for just 20; while Crescent won the battle between two of the promoted sides at the Duthie Park, with a century from Abrar Ahmed; and Knightriders recorded another win over Fraserburgh.
In Grade 3, Kemnay-Kintore, anchored by a half-century from Gareth Prosser, beat 2nd Ellon; while a century from Sandy Richards saw 2nd Banchory overcome the combined clubs' second string at

Grades cricket resumed at the weekend with a virtually full programme in all three leagues.
Perhaps the day's major upset was the defeat of last season's champions Ellon by newly promoted
In Grade 2 Crathie found matters more to their liking following last season's struggles in Grade 1, as a five-wicket haul from Bob McAra saw them to victory against newly promoted Huntly; but Crescent were unable to mark their return to the Duthie Park, losing to Gordonians. Queens Cross, anchored by a knock of 60 from Mark Lambley beat Cults-Artisans at the Allan Park, while Caledonian were unable to raise a team against Fraserburgh, and Knightriders took the honours, away to Banchory.
In Grade 3 new look Kemnay-Kintore first XI got their season off to a promising start against 2nd AGSFP’s at Rubislaw, while Portcullis won the meeting of the other newly promoted side Turriff on the re-opened square at DP2. 2nd Kemnay-Kintore logged the day's only draw against 2nd Methlick, while 3rd Gordonians overcome their club's 2nd eleven in a foretaste of the first round of the Reid Cup, while league newcomers 3rd AGSFP's lost to Academy at the Links.

This fee covers access to toilet facilities but not changing accommodation.
The charge for the two Duthie Park pitches is £33.50 per game, which is payable to the Association – it was easier to make a single contract for the Association for the 4 clubs based there – and will be re-invoiced by the Association to the relevant Clubs at the end of each month.
For Harlaw, Groats Roads and Rubislaw, the Council will invoice at the end of each month.
