Subsequent to the circulation of the Agenda and papers. we have under Item 12 received a late application from Grampian to enter a second team, which we hope clubs will be willing to consider, and an intimation from Mannofield that they have decided to move their 4th “development” XI to playing what I understand would be Sunday games in Division 2 of the Strathmore Union, and consequently to withdraw from Grade 3.  

wytbu8  Nov 8 2015 - 9:16pm   

Along with the recent notification of Rule changes for consideration at the forthcoming AGM Clubs were, as a matter of courtesy, advised of a request recently submitted by a member of Stonehaven CC that an issue relating to the Wet Weather Guidelines be discussed, and the text of that Request was circulated. 

For clarification this request was simply as specified, one for discussion. There was no formal proposal at the forthcoming AGM for consideration of any specific change - the Wet Weather Guidelines in any event not being subject to Rule 26 procedures for amendment.

With the Grades having played no representative fixture this season, and the SPCU keen to raise the profile of the game through inter-association matches, a match between the respective Selects has been arranged to be played at Lochlands Park, Forfar, this Saturday, with a 1pm start.

In ironically the best weather of the summer champions Bon Accord confirmed their retention of the Grade 1 title, beating Mannofield at the County Ground with a century from Nawaz Mirza, while both Kemnay-Kintore and Portcullis were confirmed as winners of their respective grades as Turriff scratched their final fixture; and a number of games were agreed as to be left un-played, as a weather-disrupted league season came to an end.

Dear Stuart and Team MCC.

On behalf of Aberdeenshire Cricket Association, my heartiest thanks to Methlick Cricket Club for organising a successful Aberdeenshire Cup finals at Lairds on 23rd August, 2015.

wytbu8  Aug 24 2015 - 10:34am   

Grade 1 leaders and prospective 2015 champions Bon Accord’s hopes of completing the season with an unblemished record was brought to a halt in the last regular round of games for the season as an unbroken eighth-wicket partnership for AGSFPs from Rutwik Hegde and Vijay Vijapur saw them to a two-wicket victory in a low-scoring game at the Links. However with Cults-Artisans also going down to defeat against Crescent the destination of the title will remain unaffected, on a Saturday which also saw bottom-side Banchory record some late-season cheer against a weakened Ellon team, and Mannofield ran out expected winners against also-relegated Fraserburgh.

wytbu8  Aug 23 2015 - 8:52pm

With the majority of the league issues now decided, attention in the Grades this weekend will focus on the showpiece of the Aberdeenshire Cup Final to be played on Sunday.

With Mannofield unavailable, this year’s final will take place at Methlick’s home ground of Lairds with current holders Ellon, who swept aside Bon Accord in last year’s final, seeking to retain the trophy against Cults-Artisans, who on this season’s league form will probably start favourites.

wytbu8  Aug 20 2015 - 10:14am   

Persistent rain over the previous 48 hours, coupled with void games earlier in the season, means that Grade 1 is now likely to continue into overtime, with three of the scheduled five fixtures from Saturday’s programme now requiring to be re-scheduled for the first available date taking account of clubs’ outstanding cup commitments.
