I’m bit disappointed that I can’t make the AGM. I’m tutoring on a level 1 course in the Scottish Borders on Sunday all day. I’ve added my stats for the amount of kids introduced to the game and playing it at junior clubs of course. Just want you to stress the point that I am there for every young player in the area and if clubs have talented youngsters even though they don’t have a junior section they have to inform me so that I can have a look at them because they could be potential Scotland players for all we know. Mark Assiter who won the junior batting award for the grades is a perfect example. If he didn’t sign onto a summer holiday camp 2 years ago I wouldn’t have seen him and got him to play junior cricket. And he is in our Scotland u/15 winter training group.

I also believe that there are quite a number of clubs that want to stick with draw in the lower grades even though some clubs wants the limited over version. They have approached me and asked for my support to get it changed. I personally think to get youngsters into the game that the draw format, doesn’t do us any justice. No 14 year old wants to stand on a cricket field all day and go home and say we had a no result. They would rather lose and try and do better next time to get that feeling of winning. I understand that its been there for a number of years but we have got to look at the bigger picture.

The 2006 prize winners are as follows;

Aberdeenshire Cup - Kintore

Junior League Cup - Artisans
MrPurple  Oct 12 2006 - 10:37am   
Earlier this week the attention of the Secretary of the Association was drawn to comments on a local cricket web site, seriously impugning not only the competence, but also the integrity, of the umpires in Sunday's Aberdeenshire Cup Final.  These caused grave upset to the individuals concered, without whose input we would have no appointed umpires at all.
 
While these comments have now been removed, and a full apology made and accepted, Officers of the Association wish to make it clear that such comments are entirely unacceptable, and can lead to disciplinary action under Rule 22 of the Association for bringing the game into disrepute, with available penalties - depending on whether the infraction is by an individual or a club as a whole - including suspension, a monetary fine, or a deduction of league points.
 
You have been warned.

The Turriff cup 20/twenty Semi and Final have been scheduled for this weekend 9th/10th September at the Links. 

First of the games with BonAccord and AGFP scheduled to start at 13:00 and the Second scheduled at 16:00 with Mannofield playing the winner of the previous game. Both games have been scheduled to minimise disruption from the football game at Pittodrie.

Kintore win the Aberdeenshire CupBon Accord's hopes of completing a full sweep of all the trophies open them failed at the penultimate hurdle, as their batting crumbled against Kintore in Sunday's Aberdeenshire Cup Final at Mannofield.

wytbu8  Sep 3 2006 - 8:29pm   
A century from wicketkeeper A Win and five wickets from Mac Ahmed saw Bon Accord comfortably beat Kintore to take the Grade 1 title in Saturday's final round of fixtures in the top two leagues.
 
At the other end of the table meanwhile Queens Cross fell 4 agonising runs short of retaining their Grade 1 status in their head-to-head contest with Inverurie at Kellands Park, while Grammar FPs took the points they needed to survive despite losing to Ellon.
 
The Grade 2 title goes to Artisans following their defeat of Academy at the Duthie Park, while Gordonians beat Kemnay in a low-scoring game at Bogbeath Park.
MrPurple  Sep 2 2006 - 10:03pm   
Cricket Users Group Meeting originally arranged for tonight (Thursday 31st August) has been postponed to Thursday 7 September 2006 at 7pm at the Tennis Centre in Westburn Park.  
MrPurple  Aug 31 2006 - 2:58pm   
Having avoided one another all season, Bon Accord play Kintore twice in 24 hours at the weekend in their attempt to make a clean sweep of all the trophies open to them this season.
 
Requiring only 10 points to take the league title, Saturday's Grade 1 encounter paradoxically probably presents the simpler task than Sunday's one-off game at Mannofield.  If however Bon Accord do slip up on Saturday, then Cults, who have finished their programme, will once again be crowned champions.
 
At the bottom of the league meanwhile Queens Cross need to win and restrict Inverurie to less than 10 points if the Harlaw side are not to be relegated to Grade 2, with the odds probably on the Kellands Park side surviving.
 
The other issue to be resolved is the Grade 2 title, which will go to Artisans if they win their final game against Academy.  However should Artisans miss out then 2nd Cults have the possibility of gaining promotion along with Mannofield, both sides having completed their programmes last weekend.
 
In Grade 4, already won by Turriff, St Ronald take on Dunecht at King's College.
