Defeats for Bon Accord and Stonehaven were the main surprises of the latest round of games in Thistle Sports Grade 1, on a day when a dammp pitch at Kellands Park led to the voiding of Cults' game versus Inverurie.

At the Links Bon Accord were dismissed for just 117 by Ellon, Henry Woolridge-Gordon proving the match-winner with a haul of four wickets followed by an undefeated half-century as the Bons' run machine for once failed to click; while at Allan Park Stonehaven's lingering chances of winning the title almost certainly disappeared, as 2nd Cults gained vital points in their attempt to retain their top flight status at the expense of Inverurie and Mannofield, the latter of whom fell just short of overhauling Banchory in a high-scoring draw at Burnett Park follwing a century knock for the home side by Phil Potter.

Clubs are reminded that ordinarily no player may play for more than one club in a season, unless:

(a)     s/he elects (with the consent of her/his existing club, and with the Association Secretary having previously been notified) to play two trial games for, and thereafter transfer to, a club in a higher grade – the grade of a club is determined for this purpose by that in which its first eleven plays, irrespective of the team for which the triallist may have played for her/his previous club;

(b)     s/he has not played more than six games for her/his previous club; and both clubs concerned produce to the Management Committee grounds acceptable to it.

In either case, players must be financially clear with their previous club, have that club’s consent, and the Secretary must have been informed of the arrangement before play commences.  Ad hoc borrowing of players without the consent of their previous club, and the Secretary being informed, is not allowed; and if proved could result in the team concerned being deemed to have lost, and being awarded zero points, for any game concerned.

With water-logged pitches putting paid to the majority of fixtures, there was little substantial change in any of the four Grades following the latest round of games.

In Grade 1 Cults predictably overcame Caledonian at the Allan Park, Javaid Masud for once featuring with the bat as well as the ball, while in the only other game to be completed Mannofield took valuable points in the relegation struggle, just holding off the challenge of Stonehaven at Mineralwell Park.

In Grade 2 Grammar FPs were the only team of the top three in action but dropped four points to Academy; while Crathie won their home game against Methlick.

Just the one game was completed in Grades 3 and 4, Anchorians beating 2nd Banchory, with Chris Forbes once again taking eight wickets for the visitors, to strengthen the promotion challenge of Turriff, whose game against Dunecht was one of those to fall victim to the weather.

Comfortable wins for Cults and Kintore mean that the top two positions in the Thistle Sports Grades remain unchanged following the latest round of games.

Bon Accord however had to settle for a draw against Banchory, Phil Potter hitting 120 in response to Fazal Awan's earlier 113 for the visitors.

Perhaps the major surprise of the day in Grade 1 came at Kellands Park, where Inverurie notched up their fourth win of the season, to open a valuable gap over 2nd Cults and Caledonian iwho currently occupy the two relegation spots.

An oral history project has been launched by Aberdeen City Council as one of the many events being organised to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the Duthie Park on Sunday, 14 September, 2008.

The council’s oral history team wants to hear from people who would like to share their memories of the Duthie Park, which will be recorded and used as part of an exhibition at the park later in the year.

The City Council’s oral history officer, Arlene Forman said: "All memories are important and these might come from people who have used the park for leisure purposes or from people who worked there. We would love to hear from as many people as possible."

A dramatic game at Kintore, where eighteen wickets fell for less than 90 runs, was the main feature of a generally low-scoring day in the Thistle Sports Grades on Saturday.

Having dismissed Stonehaven, leaders of the table for the first six weeks of the season for just 43, Kintore must have felt that victory – and consolidation of second place in Grade 1 – would be just a formality.  However, in a game where the bowlers were on top throughout on a damp pitch, Kintore equally struggled themselves, only Dave Grayson and Russell Balsillie getting into double figures, as the home side squeezed home by just two wickets.

Bon Accord became nine-times winners of the Press and Journal Trophy following the finals of this year’s Thistle Sports Sevens played in the Duthie Park on Thursday evening.

In the best weather of the tournament, the Bons were once again led to victory by Fazal Awan, who top scored with 60, and Nawaz Mirza who followed up his undefeated knock of 39 by taking two Mannofield wickets in the first over of their response, to again deservedly win the Man of the Match award.

In the earlier semi-final Mannofield dismissed Banchory within five overs, Suvra and Innes each chipping in with two wickets; and only Phil Potter making any impact with the bat
