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.

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.
