Though an improvement in overhead conditions allowed a majority of matches in the Aberdeenshire Grades to go ahead on Saturday, the heavy rain on Friday morning meant that wickets could not be provided at Cults, Sheddocksley, Methlick or Crathie.

At the top of Grade 1 however Bon Accord maintained their 100 per recent record, another undefeated half-century from the prolific Fazal Awan, and 59 from Andy Win, setting them on route to a six-wicket win over Crescent at Kings College, while Mannofield aided by a five wicket haul by Adrian Neill tightened their grip on third place defeating Ellon at the Gordon Park. Neither Fraserburgh nor Banchory were able to win however, re-enforcing their fears of relegation.

Bon Accord’s chances of retaining the Grade 1 title for a further season were strengthened on Saturday as they completed a second league victory for the season over closest rivals Cults-Artisans at the Links. Despite having only a modest total of 143 to chase, based largely round an undefeated 43 from Michael Fyffe, five wickets from Tauqeer Malik saw the visitors dismissed 21 runs short of their target, despite Krishna Trisal top-scoring with 48 for the visitors.

Heavy rain overnight, and continuing into mid-afternoon, meant the washout of all cricket planned in the Aberdeenshire Grades on Saturday.

This posed particular problems for the fixture planners as the complete semi-final programme in Grades 2 to 4 now has to be re-scheduled, along with two games in Grade 1 where fixtures have been washed out on both occasions teams were due to meet this season.

wytbu8  Jul 5 2015 - 12:54am   

Officers of the Association have been in discussion over the best way forward for re-scheduling the matches washed out on Saturday July 4th, including the Grade 2 to 4 cup semi-finals, which now require to be replayed.

As virtually an entire fixture card has been lost, but has to be re-scheduled, it is felt that it will be easier if rescheduling on this occasion is implemented centrally rather than by a complex set of individual inter-club negotiations.  This is particularly so as the programme requiring re-arrangement combines both league and cup games, with the latter needing to receive a degree of priority, and the complexities of ground availability this involves.  Otherwise, given the number of games to be re-scheduled, it might have been simplest to move the programme en bloc to the end of the season.

There were few, if any, major surprises in the latest round of games in ACA Grade 1 as Bon Accord, Cults-Artisans and Ellon all had comfortable wins over teams from the lower half of the table, while Mannofield also ran out winners against AGSFPs, and a seven wicket haul from Crescent’s Vaibhav Gupta left Fraserburgh closer to an early return to the second tier.

The Association has been informed that, due to their continuing inability to assemble sufficient players, 2nd Kemnay/Kintore have felt it would be fairest on other teams in Grade 4 if they were to withdraw from that league for the remainder of the season. They hope that their efforts in junior development will enable them to apply for re-election for 2016.

A couple of individual all-round performances were the highlights of the latest round of games in ACA Grade 1 as a century and four wickets from Poongkannan Palaniyandi helped Knight Riders to a 22-run victory over AGSFPs at Rubislaw while four wickets and an innings of 95 from Rohan Vaishampayan saw Mannofield through to victory over Crescent in a high-scoring game at the University ground.

Persistent drizzle and heavier downpours in the afternoon meant that the majority of games in the top two divisions finished void, with only Mannofield in Grade 1 improving their position at the expense of Banchory.

In Grade 2 likewise just two positive results were reported as an undefeated half-century from Kumaraguru Thangamani helped 2nd AGSFPs to an eight-wicket win over Queens Cross/Stoneywood-Dyce, while a 54 and three wickets from Chamila Perera saw Gordonians inflict a first defeat of the season on Methlick. The game between Academy and 2nd Knight Riders was abandoned following disagreement over the condition of the outfield.

There were few upsets in Saturday’s Grade 1 cricket programme with Bon Accord, Cults-Artisans and Ellon all recording victories over clubs in the lower part of the table, while at the foot Fraserburgh lost again.

At Rubislaw Tauqeer Malik and Nawaz Mirza combined to put the home side out for just 38, while in the game at Kings College, Krishan Trisal recorded another century, and Steve Morrison scored 68, as the visitors won a high-scoring encounter against Crescent, despite an innings of 128 from the home side’s Jamal Ali.  For Mannofield a four-wicket haul from Will Clayton saw Fraserburgh dismissed for just 84, while an undefeated half-century from Jon Barrett saw Ellon comfortably home over a struggling  Banchory side.
