The weekend's monsoon rains held off long enough for another full programme of league games to be completed in the Thistle Sports Grades, on a day which saw no fewer than five centuries being logged in the lower divisions.

Two of these came at Countesswells with Aditya Barthakur and Tariq Butt each reaching the magic milestone, as promotion-chasing Gordonians ran up 296 for three off 40 overs but were still unable to force victory against Fraserburgh; while the day's other centurions were Charles Woolridge-Gordon for 2nd Ellon, Jeremy Skedge of Crescent, and Stuart Davidson of 2nd Kintore, the last-named still finishing on the losing side as Chris Forbes of Anchorians fell one short of being the day's sixth centurion in a high-scoring game in the Duthie Park.

Midsummer Day; and the Grades season reaches its halfway point with three, possibly four, clubs still entertaining hopes of securing the Grade 1 title.
While Bon Accord currently enjoy a 6 per centage point advantage, defeat for them by third-placed Kintore, in Saturday's preview of next weekend's Cup Quarter final, would renew the chances of Cults, who on Saturday have a home game against Banchory.  Two recent wins for Inverurie meanwhile have hoisted them for the present out of the relegation zone, at the expense of last season's two promoted sides, Caledonian and 2nd Cults, who meet on Saturday in a crucial game at the Duthie Park.

With the draw for once favouring them with home advantage, and also winning the toss to bat first in uncertain light, the Grades Select team were at last able to overcome their hoodoo team Huntly to move into the third round of this season's Three Counties Twenty20 Cup, following Wednesday evening's game at the Links.
Top scorer for the Grades was J. Dickenson, Andy Win chipping in with 23, and Shaffiq adding a vital 24 at the death.  For Huntly Forsyth took three wickets and Ali and Morrison two each.
Chasing a score of 160 to win, Huntly lost wickets steadily, no batsman getting past 20; and the game ending in the seventeenth over, when the Huntly number 11 was forced to reture hurt.  For the Grades the wickets were shared out between skipper Malik, Chris Forbes of Anchorians, and Jerry Moir.

For the first time this season, bad weather took a significant role in the Grades in Saturday, with a significant number of games being called off before commencement due to waterlogged pitches.

In a relatively full Grade 1 programme however, Bon Accord remain top of the table following a predictably comfortable win over promoted Caledonian, while Cults’ win at Kintore means that they now overtake their hosts in second place.  Elsewhere, Mannofield took valuable points from Ellon, to move away from the relegation zone; while Stonehaven slipped back further to fourth place following their draw with Banchory.

Two wins each for Bon Accord and Kintore saw them both through to join Banchory in the semi-finals of the Press & Journal Trophy following last night’s results in the Thistle Sports Sevens.  Stonehaven & Cults B, and St Ronald and FPs, will meantime battle it out on Monday, along with Cults A and Gordonians, to see who qualifies for the last four of the Duncan Cup.
MrPurple  Jun 13 2008 - 9:00am   

Having been ejected from the small Clubs Cup at the first hurdle, and lost two recent league games, Cults will be anxious to show a recovery of their traditional form when they travel to Kintore on Saturday.  Meantime their seconds will be just over the hill, attempting to extend their lead over Inverurie following the Kellands Park side’s first win of the season last week against Caledonian.

They meantime face the stiff task of playing new leaders Bon Accord at the Duthie Park, while Stonehaven – leaders of the pack until last weekend – will hope that last Saturday’s result proves just a blip, as they travel to Banchory.

MrPurple  Jun 12 2008 - 7:22pm   

A display of hard hitting from Banchory’s Phil Potter saw his side claim the first semi-final spot in this year’s Thistle sports Sevens, following Monday night’s opening round of games at the Duthie Park.  Cults A and Gordonians meantime will pay off next Monday to see who goes into the final four of the Duncan Cup, for Group Runners-Up.

In Group B Huntly, making a return to the tournament after a number of year’s absence, comfortably beat last year’s Duncan Cup winners Queens Cross, but lost to Mannofield; and therefore must wait until next Monday to find out their future in the Competition.  If Queens Cross beat Mannofield, then with each team having won one game, the Group placings will be decided by runs per wicket for and against.  Otherwise Mannofield will go forward into the P and J Trophy, and Huntly into the Duncan Cup.
