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.

As the teams near the foot of Grade 1 fight to avoid slipping into the two relegation positions, attention in the remaining leagues this Saturday will focus on the semi-finals of the various knockout competitions.

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.

Further to the e-mail that you may have received from Ramsay Allan at Cricket Scotland (repeated below for your info.), I am delighted to announce that the ACA is to host one of these workshops in the Bradman Suite of the Mannofield club on Monday 13 June (7pm).
Colin McDougall, our Child Protection Officer, will be leading these presentations and has already delivered four of these, which were very well received; I attended the one in Nairn and can, despite the dry nature of the subject, highly recommend that you attend (especially if your club has junior players, i.e. Under-18).

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

Results of the latest round of games in the Aberdeenshire Grades have confirmed the pre-season prediction that the extension of Win-Lose cricket this year to all grades could well result in an increased gap between teams at the top and bottom of the league in all divisions.
In Grade 1 three sides, Bon Accord, Academy and AGSFPs, remain on maximum points following their latest wins, while Mannofield and Ellon meantime occupy the two relegation spots with Lahore Karahi having moved up to eighth behind Crescent following their victory over the County Club’s Third Eleven, Imran Kaleem falling one run short of a century for the Kings College-based side, despite Mannofield’s Stuart Horne responding with an innings of 109 as his side fell 59 runs short in a high-scoring encounter switched to the ground at Harlaw. For AGSFPs Karan Anand top-scored with 116 and also took three wickets as they overcame fifth-placed Knight Riders at Rubislaw.
