Mannofield claimed the first semi-final spot in the Press & Journal Trophy, while Kintore will play for the Duncan Cup, following last night's round of games at the Duthie Park.  Their opponents will be Cults A and Ellon; but who plays whom will depend on the result of next Monday's final game in Group D.

The fact that both qualifiers from Group C are already known follows the withdrawal from the Competition of Grammar FPs, and the decision of Mannofield and Kintore to bring forward their Group decider from next Monday, once both had beaten Dunecht in time (just) to allow a third game to be completed in the gathering gloom.

Mannofield, who had the advantage of batting first, put in a sound all-round batting performance to post a challenging total of 88 for four, Association joint web master Tariq Butt top scoring with 41; but despite an undefeated 42 from Colin Laird Kintore fell increasingly behind the clock as they tried to blast their way to victory.

In Group D both Cults and Ellon carried too much firepower for Methlick, to set up a Group title decider next week with Cobus Huiseman of Ellon compiling the evening's highest score as he and Jonathan Barrett combined in a 125-run partnership, before Huiseman was dismissed off the final ball of Ellon's innings.

Bon Accord's pre-eminence at the short form of the game was again demonstrated as they won both their opening games in this year's Thistle Sports cricket sevens at the Duthie Park.

In the opening game of their cup defence it was an undefeated half-century from Fazal Awan that effectively batted Banchory out of the game, before in their second match skipper Malik took a hattrick to rip out the heart of the Queens Cross batting with the last three balls of his over, having the previous ball also run out one of the Harlaw side's openers.

In the evening's remaining games, Banchory bounced back to inflict a second defeat of the evening on Academy; while with Alex Keith going cheaply St Ronald lost to Stonehaven, before they in turn were beaten by Cults B.

See the results section for the full scores. The remaining fixtures are shown here.

A suprise one-run defeat of Kintore by Stonehaven, and draw between Bon Accord and Ellon at the Gordon Park, saw Cults strengthen their grip on the Grade 1 title race on Saturday.

The Grades Select's hopes of repeating last year's run to the final in the Strathmore Cricket Union Three Counties Cup came to an abrupt end as, after two postponements, they were beaten by Huntly in a low-scoring First Round encounter at Castle Park.

Having won the toss, Huntly batted first, but could amass only 74, A Ali top-scoring with 21, with Alex Keith being the pick of the bowlers, returning figures of three for 14, as the wickets were shared around.

Huntly's modest total however was to prove two much for the Select, who crashed to 62 all out, Bon Accord's A. Win top scoring with 20, and Neil Nicol and W Botha each picking up three wickets.

Huntly go forward to meet Mannofield in the next round, while the Select will have to await this season's Twenty20 competition for their next action.


Huntly 74 (A. Ali 21; A. Keith 3-14, T. Malik 2-12, S. Whyte 2-20, N. Mirza 2-22). Thistle Sports Grades Select 62 (A. Win 20; N. Nicol 3-10, W. Botha 3-15). At Huntly.

Although a waterlogged pitch put paid to the top of the table encounter between Cults and Kintore, both Ellon and Bon Acccord maintained their pressure on the league leaders, beating St Ronald and Inverurie respectively.

"On behalf of the Management Committee I would like to apologise for the delay in producing this years handbook. We are doing our best to get it completed and issued but for reasons completely outwith our control (particularly relating to the size of the booklet and the computer format of the content)  there continues to be problems and delays. Whilst we cannot at this stage give any definitive date we believe that these problems have been largely overcome and our hope is that it will be available next week. If  received early in the week copies will be posted to Secretaries.

An emphatic ten-wicket win over Grammar FPs at Rubislaw saw Cults move to clear first position at the top of Grade 1, as Ellon, despite home advantage, dropped points against draw specialists Inverurie.

Aberdeen City Council reiterated that they remain committed to the removal of sports from public parks as a long-term aim, but that cricket would continue to be played in Duthie Park for "the foreseeable future" as their current strategy is focussed "almost entirely on football" and that funding simply does not yet exist to replace the minimum 7 squares.

There will be a Cricket Users Group meeting at the Westburn Tennis Centre this Thursday (18th May), starting at 7pm. All clubs that use municipal pitches are urged to send a representative so we can give the council a clear understanding of our opinions on the current and future provision of cricket facilities in Aberdeen.
