Good afternoon

I write to advise you that the Links Cricket ground will increase in usage this season due to pitch booking requirements by leagues.  As requested and noted in the users meeting held on 30 September 2016, ACA asked that the end wicket is not used, therefore, can I ask that notification is given to all teams that due care and attention should be applied during matches so that wickets (6) can be functional throughout the season.

Apologies all just received this note from Sport Aberdeen:

Thanks for your emails and apologies for not being in touch recently.

Unfortunately, the Grants are on hold at the moment and will be reviewed in view of the ‘Strategy for an Active Aberdeen’ which is in the process of being written. I will be in contact soon with all the RDM’s to consult on a new Sports Grant Scheme. It will be nearer August/September time before the new scheme is launched.

I regret to advise you that the workshops below will now NOT take place as scheduled due to lack of interest. I suspect that there is already enough going on at this time of year.

I intend to reschedule these to post season 2016 perhaps as a weekend coaching ‘conference’ style event.

While the following is of particular relevance to clubs operating a junior section, it is hoped that the undernoted will be of some interest to all clubs to show you what we are doing in Cricket Scotland to raise the awareness of protecting young and vulnerable people playing cricket in Scotland.

At the Spring Meeting of the Association, held on February 28th 2016, Clubs were advised of the changes to governance of Cricket Scotland, under which it was proposed that the regional Associations [including the ACA] would acquire the right each to nominate a non-executive director to the board of Cricket Scotland Holdings Limited, the top-level board which sets the strategic direction for Scottish cricket, and supervises the “lower” company, Cricket Scotland Limited, which actually manages the grant funding the sport receives from ICC, ECB and Sport Scotland.  The Executive agreed that time constraints meant that the nomination of a director on this initial occasion should be delegated to the Management Committee of the Association, which has now discussed the matter.

The Community Sports Grants programme, which provides support to Talented Athletes, Coaches & Officials and local sports clubs is again open for applications. With the deadline date of Friday 4th March fast approaching, funding is still available in all three categories in this final round of 2015/16.

Alistair Robertson, Managing Director of Sport Aberdeen, who administrates the scheme on behalf of the Active Aberdeen Partnership and Aberdeen City Council stated, “I am delighted that the Partnership is able to assist local sports clubs and individuals in developing their sport and furthering their ambitions.  I would encourage people to discuss their applications with the team at Sport Aberdeen so that we are able to guide them.  These grants can make a significant impact for sports clubs and enable them to get more people playing their sport.  It’s the same for coaches, officials and talented athletes where a little can go a long way in helping to promote a promising career.”

In the interests of transparency I thought it would be helpful if I shared with member clubs some of the issues surrounding the preparation of fixtures for 2016.

Following the AGM we have 33 teams in membership.  This is sufficient to allow for the continuation of four leagues, comprising 10, 8, 8 and 7 teams.  There are however issues over pitch availability.  The two new sides elected [Aberdeen Super Kings and 2nd Grampian] both require town pitches, whereas two of the three clubs who have withdrawn [2nd Banchory & 2nd Stonehaven] had their own grounds.  Additionally, it has been indicated that Inverurie may be unable this season to prepare/make available the ground at Kellands Park for other sides.

Please finds attached a letter from Cricket Scotland regarding an upcoming road show event, to be held in Aberdeen on Sunday 24th January, outlining their proposals for a revised governance structure for domestic cricket within Scotland, which I would be grateful if could be circulated to club secretaries and publicised on the Association web site.

Subsequent to the circulation of the Agenda and papers. we have under Item 12 received a late application from Grampian to enter a second team, which we hope clubs will be willing to consider, and an intimation from Mannofield that they have decided to move their 4th “development” XI to playing what I understand would be Sunday games in Division 2 of the Strathmore Union, and consequently to withdraw from Grade 3.

Along with the recent notification of Rule changes for consideration at the forthcoming AGM Clubs were, as a matter of courtesy, advised of a request recently submitted by a member of Stonehaven CC that an issue relating to the Wet Weather Guidelines be discussed, and the text of that Request was circulated. 

For clarification this request was simply as specified, one for discussion. There was no formal proposal at the forthcoming AGM for consideration of any specific change - the Wet Weather Guidelines in any event not being subject to Rule 26 procedures for amendment.
