Bon Accord

Bon Accord were crowned as seven-times winners of the Press & Journal Trophy, as the rain finally relented to allow the final stages of this year's Thistle Sports Sevens to be played out at the Duthie Park last night.

From the moment they hit 38 off their opening over, the result of their Final against Cults A, who had earlier disposed of a strong Mannofield Seven, was never in serious doubt; and though the Allan Park side started well enough, some outstanding catches in the deep, and a sequence of run outs left Cults 44 runs short at the death.

In the final of the Duncan Cup, Kintore easily managed to overhaul Queens Cross's modest total of 48, after the Harlaw side had earlier convincingly defeated Cults' second string, to take them through to their first Sevens' final.

For his allround contribution Nawaz Mirza was once again named as man of the match in the Press & Journal Trophy final.

Not for the first time it was the players of the lower divisions who kept the flag of Grades Cricket flying, as persistent stormy showers meant that only one game was completed in the top two leagues.

The final rounds of the Thistle Sports Sevens have now been re-scheduled for Monday evening, June 26th, at 6.30pm.

MrPurple  Jun 23 2006 - 2:27pm   

Following last night's rain, the remaining Duncan Cup semi final and final games have been rescheduled to Thursday June 22 - semi-final at 6.30 (DP3), Final at 1945 (DP2).

The final stages of the P & J Trophy will also take place as scheduled that night - semi-finals at 6.30 (DP1 and DP2), final at 1945 (DP1).

See the fixtures list for full details.

Persistent drizzle and bad light brought a premature end to the final stages of the Duncan Cup at the Duthie Park last night.

With Ellon having now scratched from the competition, provided that the three remaining teams and a third pitch at the Park are all available, then an effort will be made to re-schedule the two outstanding games to this Thursday, concurrently with the final stages of the Press & Journal Trophy.  If that is not possible,  then they will be played off next Monday.

Clubs will be advised of the agreed revised arrangements not later than mid-afternoon on Tuesday.

Meantime the final stages of the Press & Journal Trophy will go ahead as planned on Thursday, with holders Bon Accord taking on St Ronald in one semi-final, and Mannofield playing Cults A in the other.

Although rain meant that only two games were completed in the Aberdeen Grades on Saturday, the one match played out in Grade 1 proved to be extremely significant, Stonehaven unexpectedly inflicting a second successive defeat on Cults, to push the Allan Park for the time being off the top of the Grade 1 into fourth place below Ellon, Bon Accord and Kintore, all of whose games were washed out.

MrPurple  Jun 18 2006 - 2:49pm   

A hitherto placid tournament ended in an atmosphere of high controversy  last night, as needing six from the last ball to force their tie against Cults into an extra over, Ellon's hit was declared to have landed inches within the boundary line, putting the Allan Park side through to a semi-final of the Press & Journal against Mannofield, and relegating Ellon to the Duncan Cup playoffs next Monday against Kintore.  With emotions running high, it  looked for a moment as though players would need to be physically separated,  before both teams eventually left the field, with Ellon still indicating the possibility of putting in a formal protest to the Grades' Management Committee,  and feelings still too inflamed to enable the probable common sense solution of playing an extra over, if necessary under protest, and deciding any  subsequent protest when tempers had cooled.

MrPurple  Jun 12 2006 - 10:52pm   

Any hopes Cults had of going through another season unbeaten were firmly knocked on the head as they went down to a 119 run defeat against Ellon at the Gordon Park on Saturday.

One again it was Jonathan Barrett and Cobus Huiseman who led the way, Barrett top-scoring with 69 and taking four wickets, while Huiseman  also recorded a half-century and took three wickets, to give the home side sweet revenge for their defeat in the opening round of the Aberdeenshire Cup a fortnight ago.  The teams meet again to decide semi-final placings in the Thistle Sports Sevens on Monday evening.

Cults' defeat, though leaving them still at the top of the table, re-ignites the title hopes not only of Ellon, but also of Bon Accord and Kintore, who had no problems  in disposing of St Ronald and Grammar FPs respectively.  Queens Cross meanwhile made it three wins in a row, beating Banchory to move above Stonehaven, who lost to Inverurie at Mineralwell Park.

With Academy held to a draw by Gordonians, Mannofield strengthened their position at the top of Grade 2 beating 2nd Cults at the Allan Park, while Steve Dickie and Roy Ritchie put on 120 for the first wicket to steer Artisans to a victory over Dunecht.  Anchorians and Crescent drew, ahead of their cup quarter-final on Sunday.

In Grade 3 Methlick, with another century from Mark Woodhouse, and Portcullis both won to remain in the upper half of the table, but Fraserburgh lost to Crathie.  There was also another century for A McGeorge as Caledonian continued their recent run of form, but were held to a draw by Grammar FPs at Sheddocksley.
