Wide Open Title Races by Jack Nixon

While the weather is a major talking point, the fact that all three leagues are turning out to be highly competitive can not be overlooked, not least in Grade 1 where seven teams are still realistically in the title mix.
Aberdeen Grammar may be the only club with a 100% record, but the claims of the chasing pack, including Inverurie who have the required knack of winning games they could easily have lost, look the best of the rest.
But to suggest this is a two horse race would be wrong, especially after Bon Accord, the champions broke their duck last weekend. I am also taken by the encouraging start new boys Gordonians have made, ensuring no one takes them for granted.
Writing off Knight Riders would also be silly, as is the case of Crescent who must still be getting over their agonising one run defeat at home to Inverurie last week.
And finally, Stoneywood - Dyce are quietly going about their business, and might just fancy their chances at home to Bon Accord this weekend.
But not for the first time this season, the focus this weekend is on Kellands Park where Gordonians will be keen to build on their great start, and with opener Indy Pandit in quite outstanding form, his opposite number Chris Watson will not be underestimating the Countesswells side.
Struggling Ellon Gordon will be bidding to re - build their confidence after last week's morale sapping dismissal for 27, but likely to get no change out of highflying Grammar. Elsewhere Crescent meet Mannofield at the Links, and Knight Riders host a game with Cults at Groats Road.
In Grade 2, 2nd Aberdeen Grammar, and Methlick, the two sides who still have 100% records, are both on the road where trips to play Aberdeen Super Kings and Grampian will be sure to test their title aspirations. Stonehaven Thistle can keep themselves in the promotion race at the expense of 2nd Knight Riders, while Fraserburgh and Banchory will have the chance to get their seasons up and running with a first win.
 Grade 3 is also proving to be very competitive where Portcullis, the 100% leaders host a game with 2nd Grampian, while second placed`Crathie also have home advantage against 2nd Gordonians, and finally 2nd Methlick can keep their hopes of going up alive at Lairds where they play Dunecht another of the promotion hopefuls.
All in all a most attractive schedule of games. What now need, is some decent weather. It is after all the first day of June on Saturday.
