REVIEW OF 8th / 9th JUNE

Rain was once again the winner as the Saturday programme was decimated. Only one Grade 1 match produced a result as Quilter Cheviot Ellon Gordon hosted Mannofield, although the match had been in doubt as the outfield at Gordon Park had not been harvested during the week. Indy Yahathugoda was the top scorer with 39 as Mannofield posted 108 with Hamish Paterson and Prakash Srinivasan taking 4 for 26 and 3 for 11 respectively. Stewart Davies with 29, carried his bat as Ellon knocked off the runs in the 28th over for the loss of 5 wickets, 3 of those falling to Ranga Bandara at a cost of 30 runs. Ben Webb with 31 and Alistair Addy with an unbeaten 23 were the other main contributors as Ellon secured the 30 points for a win.
In Grade 2 a match did start at Harlaw in conditions that merited one fielder putting the hood up on his jacket, and then handing said jacket to the umpire when he came on to bowl. That match was belatedly rained off. 2nd Knight Riders travelled to Kessock Park and were bundled out for 73. Vidhyasagar Vivekanandan opened the batting and was left high and dry on 40 as his last 7 partners were all out for ducks. Paul O'Neill with 4 for 13 and Cory Bowie with 3 for 23 did the damage, and Bowie completed a man of the match effort with 57 not out as Fraserburgh won without losing a wicket.
In Grade 3, 2nd Grampian picked up points as Dunecht were unable to raise a side. The other Grade 3 sides were on Reid Cup duty. The 2nd ASI Gordonians v Portcullis match was another victim of the weather, but they had better luck at Methlick as Crathie enjoyed their visit to Lairds, rattling up 142 for 5 in their 20 overs. In reply, 2nd Methlick were all out for 69, Mike Baldry taking 3 for 8 to add to his knock of 68 in the frst innings.
The last Bon Accord quarter final was concluded, with AGSFPs in another dramatic bowl off at Stonehaven. 2nd AGSFPs showed their 1st XI how it should be done as they won 2 - 1, and they will travel to Methlick for the semi final on 28th July. Aberdeen Super Kings and Siyapa will meet on the same day to find the other finalist.
Sunday almost saw 3 local clubs in Gray Nicolls Challenge Cup action. The weather was partly to blame for the lack of games as Freuchie and Glasgow Accies had to contend with fixturing issues as they scratched to AGSFPs and Bon Accord. ASI Gordonians made the long trip to Helensburgh and were all out in the 40th over for 127. This total wouldn't have been possible without a patient 28 from Swapnil Rane and 24 from Aman Arora as Gordonians recovered from 66 for 6. Perera and Saraswat reduced Helensburgh to 20 for 4, but a 77 run partnership swung the momentum back to the home side until Arora took 4 for 14 to set home nerves jangling at 111 for 8. Gordonians couldn't make another breakthrough and in a game of small margins, Helensburgh stumbled to victory off the 2nd last ball.
