I’m bit disappointed that I can’t make the AGM. I’m tutoring on a level 1 course in the Scottish Borders on Sunday all day. I’ve added my stats for the amount of kids introduced to the game and playing it at junior clubs of course. Just want you to stress the point that I am there for every young player in the area and if clubs have talented youngsters even though they don’t have a junior section they have to inform me so that I can have a look at them because they could be potential Scotland players for all we know. Mark Assiter who won the junior batting award for the grades is a perfect example. If he didn’t sign onto a summer holiday camp 2 years ago I wouldn’t have seen him and got him to play junior cricket. And he is in our Scotland u/15 winter training group.

I also believe that there are quite a number of clubs that want to stick with draw in the lower grades even though some clubs wants the limited over version. They have approached me and asked for my support to get it changed. I personally think to get youngsters into the game that the draw format, doesn’t do us any justice. No 14 year old wants to stand on a cricket field all day and go home and say we had a no result. They would rather lose and try and do better next time to get that feeling of winning. I understand that its been there for a number of years but we have got to look at the bigger picture.

The 2006 prize winners are as follows;

Aberdeenshire Cup - Kintore
Bon Accord Cup - 2nd Cults
Reid Cup - Crathie
Johnston Rose Bowl - Turriff
Bain Cup - Bon Accord
Junior League Cup - Artisans
MrPurple  Oct 12 2006 - 10:37am   
Earlier this week the attention of the Secretary of the Association was drawn to comments on a local cricket web site, seriously impugning not only the competence, but also the integrity, of the umpires in Sunday's Aberdeenshire Cup Final.  These caused grave upset to the individuals concered, without whose input we would have no appointed umpires at all.
 
While these comments have now been removed, and a full apology made and accepted, Officers of the Association wish to make it clear that such comments are entirely unacceptable, and can lead to disciplinary action under Rule 22 of the Association for bringing the game into disrepute, with available penalties - depending on whether the infraction is by an individual or a club as a whole - including suspension, a monetary fine, or a deduction of league points.
 
You have been warned.

The Turriff cup 20/twenty Semi and Final have been scheduled for this weekend 9th/10th September at the Links. 

First of the games with BonAccord and AGFP scheduled to start at 13:00 and the Second scheduled at 16:00 with Mannofield playing the winner of the previous game. Both games have been scheduled to minimise disruption from the football game at Pittodrie.

Kintore win the Aberdeenshire CupBon Accord's hopes of completing a full sweep of all the trophies open them failed at the penultimate hurdle, as their batting crumbled against Kintore in Sunday's Aberdeenshire Cup Final at Mannofield.

wytbu8  Sep 3 2006 - 8:29pm   
A century from wicketkeeper A Win and five wickets from Mac Ahmed saw Bon Accord comfortably beat Kintore to take the Grade 1 title in Saturday's final round of fixtures in the top two leagues.
 
At the other end of the table meanwhile Queens Cross fell 4 agonising runs short of retaining their Grade 1 status in their head-to-head contest with Inverurie at Kellands Park, while Grammar FPs took the points they needed to survive despite losing to Ellon.
 
The Grade 2 title goes to Artisans following their defeat of Academy at the Duthie Park, while Gordonians beat Kemnay in a low-scoring game at Bogbeath Park.
MrPurple  Sep 2 2006 - 10:03pm   
Cricket Users Group Meeting originally arranged for tonight (Thursday 31st August) has been postponed to Thursday 7 September 2006 at 7pm at the Tennis Centre in Westburn Park.  
MrPurple  Aug 31 2006 - 2:58pm   
Having avoided one another all season, Bon Accord play Kintore twice in 24 hours at the weekend in their attempt to make a clean sweep of all the trophies open to them this season.
 
Requiring only 10 points to take the league title, Saturday's Grade 1 encounter paradoxically probably presents the simpler task than Sunday's one-off game at Mannofield.  If however Bon Accord do slip up on Saturday, then Cults, who have finished their programme, will once again be crowned champions.
 
At the bottom of the league meanwhile Queens Cross need to win and restrict Inverurie to less than 10 points if the Harlaw side are not to be relegated to Grade 2, with the odds probably on the Kellands Park side surviving.
 
The other issue to be resolved is the Grade 2 title, which will go to Artisans if they win their final game against Academy.  However should Artisans miss out then 2nd Cults have the possibility of gaining promotion along with Mannofield, both sides having completed their programmes last weekend.
 
In Grade 4, already won by Turriff, St Ronald take on Dunecht at King's College.
 
MrPurple  Aug 30 2006 - 11:02pm   
The titles in both Grade 1 and 2, and who is relegated from the top division are issues still to be resolved following the final full round of Grades matches at the weekend.

At the top of Grade 1 both Bon Accord and Cults won, leaving the Bons needing 10 points from their final game against Kintore to take the league from the current champions.

MrPurple  Aug 27 2006 - 9:54pm   

Winning the toss, and electing to bat second, probably cost Stoneywood-Dyce victory as in rapidly fading light they lost to the Grades Select by 7 runs in last night's final of the Malik  City of Aberdeen Twenty20 Cup played at Peoples Park.

MrPurple  Aug 22 2006 - 9:34am   
Mannofield's hope of completing a Grade 2 league and cup double were thwarted as they were defeated by 2nd Cults in Sunday's Bon Accord Cup Final held at the Allan Park.
 
Crathie meanwhile hoisted themselves closer to Grade 3 safety as they beat 2nd Banchory on the Royal Estate.  By agreement between the clubs the reverse fixture between the two sides, also postponed earlier in the season, has been declared void.
MrPurple  Aug 20 2006 - 9:56pm   

This season's Grade competitions look set to go into overtime, as heavy overnight rain washed some fixtures for the second time this summer, with the Association Rules requiring the postponed fixtures requiring to be replayed a week on Sunday.

MrPurple  Aug 20 2006 - 4:53pm   

It could be a case of winner-takes-all in this week's ICC Intercontinental Cup match between European rivals Scotland and Ireland  in Aberdeen at Mannofield starting (11:00) this Thursday 17th - 20th.

wytbu8  Aug 16 2006 - 10:48am   

Sean Hicks, playing in his first ever competitive match, for Banchory's u13's against Stonehaven last night, came on to bowl the second over of the game and recorded the remarkable figures of;

W W W . W + W

A hattrick with his first three deliveries and five wickets in an over! He ended up with figures of 6 for 5 in his allotted four overs. And to cap it all he then went on to score 20 not out.
MrPurple  Aug 15 2006 - 12:52pm   

A second victory of the season for Stonehaven over Kintore looks effectively to have eliminated last season's champions from this year's Grade 1 title race, and reduced the competition to a straight head off between Bon Accord and Cults, both of whom won on Saturday against Ellon and Banchory respectively.

wytbu8  Aug 13 2006 - 8:06pm   
The individual performances page (centuries, five wicket hauls, etc) has finally been updated to show all of this year's figures so far. It doesn't include hattricks yet but will do in the near future.
MrPurple  Aug 8 2006 - 12:25am   
 Bon-Accord at the Small Clubs Cup Final An outstanding weekend for city Grades side Bon Accord was completed on Sunday as they beat Victoria at Grange Loan, Edinburgh, to win the national Alfred Reader Small Clubs Cup for the first time.

Having scored 202 from one ball short of their allotted allocation of 45 overs, the Links-based side dismissed their opponents for 178, club and Grade Select skipper Malik again leading the way with four for 41, and spinner Shaffique netting three for 44, to bring the trophy back north once again.

wytbu8  Aug 6 2006 - 8:29pm   
This season's intriguing race for the Grade 1 title took another twist at the weekend as Bon Accord disposed of Cults in a match which lasted barely two hours, while current champions Kintore went down to Ellon.

With two of the Grades' top bowling attacks in action, a low scoring game had been expected at the Links, but no one had expected the clatter of wickets as Cults subsided to 41 all out, only opener and captain Dilap Patel, and number 10 batsman Stan Richards achieving double figures, Bon Accord skipper taking six wickets for 18, while at the other end Nawaz Mirza chipped in with three for 22.  Although Amol Saxena struck with three Bon Accord for 15, an undefeated 20 from Mirza saw the home team home in under eight overs, to take them to the top of the table ahead of their Small Clubs Cup Final on Sunday.

wytbu8  Aug 6 2006 - 5:47pm   
This year's Aberdeenshire Cup Final will be a repeat of last season's with holders Kintore edging out Cults by 2 runs at Castle Park, while Small Clubs Cup finalists Bon Accord had the better of a low-scoring game against Inverurie at the Links.

In the Bon Accord Cup 2nd Cults beat Stoneywood-Dyce at Peoples Park for the right to face Mannofield - a reprise of that of the last two seasons, with each side having won once.

MrPurple  Jul 31 2006 - 10:06am   

Cults strengthened their chances of regaining the Grade 1 title from current holders Kintore following the league meeting between the two sides on Saturday at Castle Park, skipper Patel leading the visitors to victory with a knock of 95. Bon Accord meanwhile comfortably won their league encounter with Inverurie at the Links to remain in second place.

MrPurple  Jul 30 2006 - 8:36pm   

Tickets have now been circulated to all clubs in respect of the Grades Mega raffle run in conjunction with Euroland Properties, our sponsor for the Aberdeenshire Cup and the Grades Dinner on 3 November 2006, at which the draw will take place.

This is a raffle with a difference however in that whilst it will benefit the Grades it could also financially benefit every club in the grades.

MrPurple  Jul 25 2006 - 9:41am   
This season's race for the Grade 1 title took another twist at the weekend, as current champions and league leaders Kintore went down to defeat by Banchory, allowing Cults to move back to the top of the table following their defeat of Queens Cross.  Bon Accord also maintained their challenge, disposing of Grammar FPs at Rubislaw, but Ellon's already slim chances of the title disappeared almost completely following another coupon-busting victory by Stonehaven.  With Inverurie completing the double over St Ronald, the battle to decide who goes down with the King's College-based side looks to continue for a few weeks yet.

Nor is who will replace them any clearer; for while Mannofield beat Academy, previous leaders Artisans went down to a nine-wicket defeat by Kemnay, for who Steve Barron recorded a second successive century.  A undefeated 103 for Jeremy Skedge for Crescent meanwhile left Dunecht still perilously placed at the foot of Grade 2, where only another scratching by Stoneywood-Dyce may help to save them.

wytbu8  Jul 23 2006 - 7:02pm   

Cricket in Duthie ParkTwo public meetings on the council's proposed improvements to Duthie Park were held yesterday. Jeremy Skedge (Crescent) attended the second one and put forward the case for cricket continuing in Duthie Park. He made people aware of how much cricket is played and how essential use of the Duthie Park pitches is for the health of cricket in and around Aberdeen, and was heartened to receive considerable support from non-cricketers, including women and OAPs, who felt it would be a shame to lose cricket from the park.

The Council is asking members of the public for their opinion on the future of Duthie Park, and have published their masterplan to illustrate their vision.

Extensive work is planned to restore the ponds, fountains and rose garden to their original Victorian splendour. Ironically they are also planning to ban cricket - one of the original reasons for the park's existance - from the park as part of their policy of moving sport away from public parks and into dedicated facilities. Also included in the plans are a new visitor centre for the Winter Gardens with a restaurant, gift shop, classroom and function room a new multi-games area with areas for tennis and five-a-side football and restoration of the bowling green.

Special exhibitions are now open at Ferryhill Library, Aberdeen Central Library and the entrance of the David Welch Winter Gardens in the park itself, to allow visitors to look at possible plans for its future development. There will also be two public meetings will be held at Ferryhill Church on Wednesday, July 19 (tommorrow) – the first from 2-4pm and the second from 7-9pm.

The public consultation exercise runs until August 25, and people are being asked to fill in and return a questionnaire, which specifically includes a question about whether or not cricket should be allowed to continue in Duthie Park. They have also joined GreenSTAT, which is an online system that gives local residents the opportunity to comment on the quality of their open spaces and how well they feel they are being managed and maintained.

Although Inverurie's defeat of Ellon has probably ended the Gordon Park side's outside chances of this year's Grade 1 title, the other top three sides had little difficulty in taking full points against lower-placed opponents in the latest round of games.

MrPurple  Jul 16 2006 - 7:52pm   

Following some delay, the Council have at last come back to me with clarification regarding the fees payable for town pitches. Seemingly, Duthie Park and the Links have in fact so far this season being levying last year's fees; but from July 17th this will be rectified making the charges across the board as follows:
