ACA Welcomes Jack Nixon as our Grades Cricket Reporter - 2017

We are delighted to announce that Jack Nixon has volunteering his services to aid reporting of the Grades Cricket Results. We would like to take this opportunity to thank David Jones who has tirelessly performed this thankless task for as long as living memory serves. Some of you are already familiar with Jack and we hope that you will all know Jack by the end of the season. Please find below a note from Jack.

“As someone who has been in love with the game since reading of the great Australian team of 1948, I think it only reasonable that my limited journalistic expertise should be made available to the local game in the Aberdeen area, in a bid to promote ACA.

I have therefore volunteered my services to the Grades, and will be summarising all action in the four leagues every week, while producing copy for the Press and Journal and the Evening Express on a Friday and a Monday each week of the season. I have after all been writing for the aforesaid outlets about Aberdeenshire and Stoneywood - Dyce for the last 20 years, in addition to covering rugby in the Caledonia area.

I am delighted to be joining a dedicated team who have to date helped me understand the ins and outs of life in the fast lane of Grades cricket.

I look forward to a strong working relationship with each and every one of the 23 clubs over what I hope will be a good season for the game, and hopefully in some better weather, unlike the day we enjoyed last Saturday.

In an interview with cricket legend Sir Ian Botham in 2009 at Mannofield, I asked him what Scotland needed to do to gain recognition on the international scene, the great man was straight to the point, and said: ''Get some b..... better weather.''

Just in case you have forgotten, or are in danger of taking for granted, the team that keeps the Grades ticking over is comprised of Robin Taylor who provides the results service, Ian Sutherland, organiser of the umpires, Stephen Hall and Tariq Butt who run the website and much, much more, Ian Stephen who not only looks after your money, but represents you on the board of Cricket Scotland, and of course the irreplaceable David Jones, the man as far as I can tell, has been Mr Cricket in the North - east for as long as I can remember. All headed up by President Martin Auld, ably supported by vice - President Andy Win. To date the afore mentioned have been the only ones I have had dealings with, but know the others are also party to keeping the show on the road in the best traditions of the local game. A formidable, organised team, and one I now happy to be a part of in the best interests of cricket.

Jack Nixon”
