Grades Results for w/e 13th/14th May 2017 - Inc Aberdeenshire Cup

Aberdeenshire Grade 1 enjoyed a day of high scoring, this despite the generally overcast and occasionally wet conditions, the pick of which was at Kellands Park where the newly promoted sides Inverurie and Kemnay-Kintore racked up 499 for a total loss of 11 wickets.

The home side batted first and were given a great start by openers Trevor Norval and George Hadden who put on 171 for the first wicket before captain Norval was run out for a splendid 118. Hadden scored a more sedate 58 in the Inverurie total of 269 for five and also starred with the ball, capturing three Kemnay-Kintore wickets for 51 to help them to restrict the gallant visitor's response to 230 for the loss of six wickets. The visitors also had a centurion in Jordan Thom with an impressive knock of 102.

''This was a great game of cricket. It was important for us to claim the bragging rights from our derby friends from Kemnay-Kintore. We're now third in the league, and can build on this great start to our campaign in the top flight,'' said the 42 year old Norval.

Elsewhere Bon Accord and AGSFP's retained their 100% records. The Bon Accord smoothly racing to a nine wicket win at the Links after restricting Crescent to 168 for six from the allocation of 45 over. Once again opener Fazal Awan was outstanding for the champions with an unbeaten 101, his second in a week.

At Rubislaw AGSFPs dismissed Knight Riders for 226 before easing past the required total for the loss of seven wickets, helped by an abrasive innings of 79 from opener Alec Keith.

At the Gordon Park, Ellon Gordon slumped to a third defeat to Cults who put behind them last week's lowly 71 all out to accumulate the top score of the day of 299 for the loss of seven wickets. Steve Morrison top scored with a sumptuous 91, while captain Aqeel Ajazi weighed in with a classy 61. The Ellon reply briefly flourished while Tom Proctor was at the crease, but the home side quickly slid to 146 all out after his dismissal.

Over at Harlaw the visitors Academy's total of 250 with half centuries from Phani Prittapatti with 57 and Vijay Vijapur with an unbeaten 56 was too much for the Mannofield side as they were dismissed for 105 led by the bowling of 
Phani Prittapatti 3 for 10 and Safeer Peedikayil 3 for 15.

In Grade 2 Stoneywood-Dyce and 2nd Knight Riders head the title race after home wins against Methlick and Arrowdawn Gordonians. Eddie Steinson starred with a knock of 41 at the Peoples Park as Stoneywood-Dyce cruised to an eight wicket win, while Knight Riders had to work hard for their two wicket win at Hazlehead.

At Fraserburgh a young Banchory side were no match for the home side who racked up 182 for the loss of six wickets before bowling out the Burnett Park side for 47. Chris Gospel was the destroyer-in-chief, claiming five for 11, while Banchory's Sean Hicks had a good day taking two for 23, and stubbornly hanging around for 11 when his side batted.

Paul O'Neill hit a splendid 57 for the home side.

Grampian were home winners against Siyapa, easing through by seven wickets after bowling out the visitors for 105. V. Varghese took four for 22. J. George scored a sensible unbeaten 47 when Grampian batted.

In the three games played in Grade 3, 3rd AGSFPs were four wicket winners at Dunecht, bowling the home side out for 133, and then going to rattle the runs off, mainly thanks A. Raider with an unbeaten knock of 35 and A. Sood who was not out on 33 when the game ended. Raider also claimed four home wickets for 20, while Sood chipped in with two for 15. For the homesters S. Derrett hit an accomplished 32.

Stonehaven Thistle launched its season with a flourish, registering 202 for the loss of six wickets with L. Fenton scoring a tidy 37 and R van Gissell 33 before restricting to 164 for 9 of which O. Thorpe scored an unbeaten 56. C. Finday was the pick of the Thistle bowlers with the figures of five for 21 which included a hat - trick.

The Aberdeen Super Kings eased past 2nd AGSFPs total of 123 all out for the loss of six wickets. M. Joggi was the most impressive visiting batsmen, notching up 48, while V. Desai had a dream day with the ball, grabbing six for 21. In the home reply N. Negri stood out with a fine 46.

There were no games played in Grade 4. The game between 2nd Kemnay-Kintore and 2nd Methlick was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

Preliminary Round Aberdeenshire Cup

Ellon Gordon, the holders of the Aberdeenshire Cup made an ignominious, early exit in the preliminary round of the competition, crashing out to a young, but more up to it ACE Mannofield side who bowled the holders out for 58.

Ben Webb the Ellon Gordon captain was disappointed by the tame surrender of his side, but said: ''This is going to be a very challenging season for the club. We have lost some good players, and were not helped by a late call off last night, resulting in us playing with 10 men today. We shall just have to concentrate on the league.''

Mannofield were best served by Fraser Proud who followed up his 67 for Mannofield on Saturday in the Strathmore with a haul of three wickets for nine runs, while Michael Elliot weighed in with three for 30. His brother Nathan was equally successful with two wickets for one run.

Scott Middleton was the only home batsman to emerge with credit, batting sensibly for his 24.

Mannofield reached the required target for the loss of four wickets, all captured by Webb who ended the afternoon with four for 19 on what was otherwise a bad day for last year's winners.
