They look unbeatable at the moment and (their website says their "much-hyped") even they think they're super! So, who can stand in the way of ELLON?

Cults look as strong as ever but KINTORE and BON ACCORD are struggling to bowl sides out. The rest have no chance against the might of Ellon and probably can't even hold many hopes of drawing against them, what with their awesome batting and bowling.

Ellon could well have wrapped up Grade 1 by the halfway point in the season, if you ask me...

you are either being very negative about your own team or trying to do a fergie and make them think they (Ellon) are favourites and hoping they get complacent. which one is it??? Please tell.

double post - I recall mentioning that Ellon would do well this year, so far my statement is correct but a long way to go yet.

My guess is that it's neither of the two. What we're seeing is a tactical use of the well documented "Curse of the Bore", which means that any team tipped for success by the Bore is instantly doomed to failure. i.e. Last week - beat QX by 165 runs. This week - can't bowl out Inverurie in 51 overs.

I bet they wish they hadn't voted in favour of the draw at the AGM two years ago. Rolling Eyes

Having read Ellons web site

Quote:
Next weekend Ellon will play a derby league match against Inverurie on Saturday followed by a mouth-watering Aberdeenshire cup tie against the other form side in Grade 1, Cults, on Sunday. By the end of next week Ellon will know whether or not they are flattering to deceive or are the “real deal”. My money is on the latter.


Lets hope not too much money was wagered Wink

In response to the question of this thread it appears the answer is "Themselves"
