It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Douglas Smith on Thursday 5th October 2017. Douglas was actively involved in Grades cricket over a number of years having previously played for Aberdeen Grammar School FPs, Mannofield and latterly for Crathie. He served as the Convener of the Grades Disciplinary Committee for a number of years and he was also honorary Vice-President of the Aberdeen Grammar School FPs cricket club. Whilst Douglas always enjoyed playing, particularly with his two sons Christopher and David, his greatest joy came from the conversation, friendship and camaraderie he enjoyed with his team mates, opposition and officials and it was for this reason that Douglas donated the popular Team Fair Play Award trophies for each Grade. He will be sorely missed.
There will be a service of Thanksgiving to celebrate the life of Douglas on Thursday 2nd November 2017, 12 noon at Deeside Christian Fellowship Church in Milltimber to which all friends are respectfully invited. Our sincere condolences to Douglas's family and friends

Now that the dust, or rather rain has settled on an exciting summer of cricket, I will allow myself the luxury of reflecting on my first season of writing for the ACA Grades, it has been a great pleasure, even a privilege to put pen to paper on your behalf thanks to the enterprise of your hardworking committee. I might just repeat the exercise next summer, if indeed I am invited to be your scribe.

Just when the cricketing fraternity of the North-East had begun to think the game had been well and truly put to bed for the winter, up comes a final in the early season of mellow  fruitfulness fit to grace any of our best days of what passes for an Aberdeen summer, producing all the spills associated with the Twenty-20 version of the game.

Rain swept across the Peoples Park on Saturday, denying cricket lovers an exciting climax to the Turriff Cup after two cracking semi-finals which saw Cults progress to the final after a comfortable 39 run win at the expense of Bon Accord, followed by Knight Riders confirming its high standing in the local game, easing to a 10 run win against the home side Stoneywood-Dyce.
A decision on where and when the final will be played will be made by the ACA committee on Monday 11th September 2017.

The final ACA Grades 1 match was played on Sunday at Sheddocksley where Academy demonstrated its huge potential, easing to narrow seven run win at the expense of last year's champions Bon Accord, handing Bon Accord its fourth league defeat of the season.

Hello Cricketers of Aberdeen & Shire,

wytbu8  Aug 28 2017 - 7:48pm   

Even the weather played its part in making the weekend one to remember for ACA Grades cricket, though supporters of Kemnay-Kintore who were relegated as a consequence of AGSFPs first Grade 1 title since 1942 may not agree.

AGSFPs look set to land its first Grade 1 title since 1942 after reigning champions Bon Accord suffered a calamitous 10 wicket defeat at Kellands Park where Inverurie Don Valley bowled the Links side out for 63.

wytbu8  Aug 20 2017 - 11:36pm   

An Aberdeenshire Grades select beat its opposite numbers form the North of Scotland in Inverness by 98 runs.
The visitors batted first and scored 226 all out of which the in form Ben Webb of Ellon Gordon scored a superb 66. Rob Swiergon (AGSFPs) hit 41 an equally good 41, enabling the Aberdeen side to post a winning total which the home side were never in with a shout of overhauling. Controlled bowling from Grades select captain Tauqeer Malik who took four wickets for 24 kept the home side on a tight rein. The Bon Accord captain worked well in harness with Frooq Shah (Academy) who returned the figures of three for 16 as NoSCA crumbled to 128 all out.

After a great weekend of cricket in which there were runs aplenty, first class catches, and bowling performances of the highest order, it seems an appropriate time to announce plans for my proposed "Junior Player of the Year".

wytbu8  Aug 7 2017 - 10:20pm   

The race for the Grade 1 title intensified as both leaders Bon Accord and second placed AGSFPs enjoyed wins, but there were defeats for the two other challengers Knight Riders and Academy, effectively making it a two horse race with three weekends to go.

Now that the finalists in all the major cups are know, it is a clear sign that the end of the season is fast approaching.

wytbu8  Jul 31 2017 - 9:58am   

AGSFPs threw the Grade 1 title race wide open, handing leaders Bon Accord a rare defeat, leaving Bon Accord with the narrowest of margins at the top of the division with four games remaining to be played.

Knight Riders gave themselves an outside chance of winning the Grade 1 championship after badly denting the title hopes of third placed Academy in a thrilling encounter at Sheddocksley where the Groats Road side eased through by the narrow margin of 19 runs to sit nicely placed in fourth position with five games left to play.
