There were few surprises in the latest round of league games in the Aberdeenshire Grades, as Bon Accord remained on course to complete the season with a hundred per cent record, while at the other end of the table Banchory’s defeat to Fraserburgh effectively confirms the Deeside club’s relegation with two rounds of games yet to complete.

Brief interruptions for rain were not enough to prevent decisive victories in the finals of the Reid & Johnston Cups played at the weekend.

In the Grade 3 competition Kemnay-Kintore swept aside a youthful 2nd Gordonians team, declaring after 35 overs and then dismissing their opponents for just 35 to complete the first leg of a projected league-cup double; while Grampian capped their first season in the Grades dismissing Turriff for 83 after a steady start which had seen them reach 50 with just one wicket down as Immanuel Doss top-scored with 30 off 39 balls.  An unbroken third-wicket stand between Rohin Joseph and man-of the-match Bijil Jacob, who had earlier taken two for 7 from 6 overs, however saw Grampian to a comfortable win with nearly half of their allotted overs remaining.

Rule 13 of the Association, under which players with specified exceptions may be registered and play for only one club in a season, provides in sub-section (b) that players registered from clubs which withdraw from competition during the season, may re-register for another club.  There is however no comparable provision to deal with players who may be left without a game following the withdrawal of a second or third team, particularly if this happens after closure of the transfer window - of which there have been 3 instances this season.  Members of the Management Committee feel that, while Rules cannot currently be changed formally, this is a situation where an informal agreement would be appropriate, and should be sought, to ensure that individuals in this position are not deprived of the possibility to play.

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.

The game at Sheddocksley on Saturday 18th July 2015 between Grampian CC V Portcullis has been cancelled due to the waterlogged ground conditions.

3rd AGSFPs 16 year old Schoolboy Rajaa Monnapillai’s bowling was instrumental in the draw last week as he took 4 of the Siyapa scalps for just 23 runs, he also held his own with the bat as he scored 17 including 3 fours showing good temperament in a tense situation.

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.
