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.

 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
