At Last Some Serious Action in Warmer Conditions by Jack Nixon

Finally the weather relented to give all three Grades some pleasant conditions, bringing the best out of batsmen, including three century makers who clearly enjoyed the warmth of a Saturday afternoon.
So let's hear it for Geet Grover of Crescent who stroked his way to 115 setting up his side for a 96 run win against Mannofield. Also among the runs in Grade 1 was Bon Accord opener Fazal Awan who must have wondered what it was all about, having scored 102 of his side's 133, only to see Stoneywood - Dyce cruise past the total with five wickets in hand, but would have been a little happier on Sunday when his side bounced back in the Aberdeenshire Cup at the Links where they beat Crescent by a 100 runs.
Grade 3 also had a centurion in Owen Thorpe who put behind him last week's first ball duck to score 102, leading his side to an impressive 142 run win over 2nd Grampian, retaining their leadership in the division in the process.
The team performance of the weekend came from Inverurie who not only beat Gordonians by nine wickets in the league, thus keeping them hard on the heels of Aberdeen Grammar, but followed it up with a 10 wicket thrashing of Stoneywood - Dyce at Peoples Park in the Aberdeenshire Cup, reminding the other three semi - finalists they intend to hang on to the most prestigious award in Grades cricket.
Gordonians gained a degree of compensation in the same competition, easing past Mannofield by 54 runs at the home of North - east cricket.
The Countesswells side will not know their oppononents until Thursday after Grammar's tie with Cults was called off, leaving the two sides to face a bowl out at Rubislaw.
Not the most satisfactory of ways to win, but rules are rules. Grammar were left with only a hard fought 32 run win against Ellon Gordon who clearly had no hangover from their 27 all out the previous week Richard Greenfield was the hero for the losers, grabbing five wickets for 37, before top scoring with 31.
Knight Riders kept themselves in the title race with a convincing nine win at Groats Road where Cults were the visitors.
In the Bon Accord Cup there were wins for Grade 2 teams Aberdeen Super Kings, Methlick,and Siyapa at the expense of 2nd Knight Riders, Fraserburgh and Grampian respectively.
Next weekend the Grade 3 sides are in action in the Reid Cup their very own knock out competition, but more of that later in the week. In the meantime there has been more than enough action for at least this scribe, including 2nd Aberdeen Grammar of Grade 2 being handed their first defeat of the season by Aberdeen Super Kings who were winning their first game of the campaign before going on to advance in the Bon Accord Cup. A feat on a par with that of Inverurie.
