Ellon Gordon Cricket Club are sad to announce the sudden death of one of their former player Steven Crawford as the result of a tragic road accident near his home in Lockerbie last Thursday 21st August. Steven was a valued member of ECC and played his cricket for ECC from 1985 - 1994. Our thoughts are with his family and his parents who live in Ellon

wytbu8  Aug 25 2014 - 5:57pm   

Ellon won the Aberdeenshire Cup on Sunday following a stunning comeback victory against Bon Accord. After being reduced to 11 for 4 by Nawaz Mirza, who finished with 6-17, Craig White and captain Scott White put together a 50 run partnership. Scott carried on to top score with 45 out of an Ellon total of 120. That turned out to be more than enough as man of the match Richard Greenfield took 7 wickets for 7 runs to secure the trophy for Ellon for the first time since 1995. More photographs in Gallery.

wytbu8  Aug 24 2014 - 9:18pm   

Although the final round of scheduled fixtures in Grade 1 has been completed the fact that Bon Accord have still to fulfil a game against Ellon postponed at that club's request in late June, and ongoing issues relating to player eligibility in the leader's fixture against Methlick on the 2nd August which means that both the title, and who goes down to Grade 2 along with Inverurie has yet to be finally determined.

Just one of the Grade cup finals ended with a league-cup double, as Bon Accord unexpectedly lost to Mannofield to set up a thrilling final week of games for the title in Grade 1.

In Grade 2 Crescent completed an outstanding season, comfortably defeating 2nd Knightriders to add the Bon Accord Cup to their earlier league title, while on the next pitch Portcullis gained a degree of recompense following their relegation to Grade 4 by defeating 2nd AGSFPs by 4 runs in the final of the Reid Cup, Jesse Walmsley taking the man of the match award for his innings of 59. For Crescent man of the match T Suri scored 64 and took 3 wickets as the league winners ran out victors by 78 runs.

Hello Sports Colleagues

I am aware you will have received notice of the Aberdeen Sports Awards from my colleagues over the summer, but I thought I would give it one more push now that the Games have passed. The closing date for nominations is Wednesday 27th August and the Awards Ceremony will be held at the Beach Ballroom on Thursday 2nd October.

wytbu8  Aug 15 2014 - 10:07pm   

Two clubs who can trace their origins back before the foundation of the Association will compete in the top division of the Aberdeenshire Grades next season, following completion of the league season in Grades 2 to 4.

Crescent, who competed in what was then the Senior League of the Association from its inception in 1885, playing in their earlier days at Pittodrie, prior being bought out by Aberdeen Football Club, secured the first leg of a possible league-cup double off the field of play, as St Ronald scratched their final game to confirm relegation of what is now effectively Cults' second string to Grade 3 for a second successive year.

wytbu8  Aug 10 2014 - 2:07pm   

Heavy lunchtime rain on Saturday once again impacted on the Grades cricket programme at the weekend.

In the games which were completed however Banchory completed the double over Inverurie, to virtually condemn the Garioch side to relegation, while Ellon beat AGSFPs, despite five wickets for father and son Roland & Sam Knudson, in a result which means that both teams are likely to finish mid-table; and leaders Bon Accord marginally strengthened their position at the top of the table, beating Methlick in a high-scoring game at the Lairds ground.
