Grades Results for w/e 19th-20th May 2018 - Youngsters Star

The continuing spell of good weather has clearly lifted the spirits of cricketers in all the Grades, not least in the Grade 1 game between Mannofield and Stoneywood-Dyce at Harlaw where 15 year old Stuart Lister made hay while the sun shone with a sparkling century. The 115 runs clocked up by the teenager were a first of a ton for him before going on to open the batting for the senior side in their Scottish Cup tie on Sunday when he faced the world class attack of a RH Corstorphine side which included Majid Haq and Hammad Azam. Not to be outdone Indika Yahathugoda stepped up to the mark, scoring a stunning 171 of his own to win the game for Mannofield in a match that yielded 498 runs. But while the two were performing miracles, across the city AGSFPs and Knight Riders were enjoying their own shoot out in the sun. The pity of this match was that neither side deserved to lose, although in Karan Anand, the defending champions had the man of the match who not only hit a sumptuous unbeaten 99 to steer his side home but took four wickets for 23 to restrict the visitors to 193 for eight. In the meantime, Bon Accord were more sedately keeping themselves in the title race with a convincing 82 run win, making a huge dent in the prospects of Inverurie in the process. Not for the first time Fazal Awan stepping up to the mark with a half century and five wickets. It was much closer in the game between Crescent and Grampian at the Links where the league's newcomers made 150 but made the home side struggle all the way before easing home with only two wickets in hand and 3 balls to spare. Cults continue to struggle in the top grade and were no match for Academy who were convincing eight wicket winners at home to the Allan Park side.

In Grade 2, the race for the title is wide open with Gordonians, Ellon Gordon, and Stonehaven Thistle all unbeaten. Gordonians will be delighted to have a player of the class of Abrar Ahmed with 110 in his side's total of 247 which was I am told an outstanding, well measured knock. Whilst Ellon Gordon were not in action, it's clear that they will be the ones to beat, given their strong line up, superbly led by captain Ben Webb.

In Grade 3, I am delighted to see the youth policy of Banchory starting to pay dividend, under the watchful eye of veteran Tim Wilkinson who still manages to find a place in the Burnett Park set up. It also gives me great pleasure to see my Junior-of-the-Year of 2017 Chad Abbott take five wickets, keeping his side at the head of affairs in the division.

All in all a good weekend for the game in Aberdeen and area, made all the better by some outstanding performances, not least from so many youngsters. No wonder the sun was smiling down.
