Dear friends and fellow cricket lovers,

I always thought, if given the opportunity I would prepare speech of few lines while taking over Presidency. However never in my dreams did I think that I would become President in such a dramatic fashion.

Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to serve Aberdeenshire Cricket Association (ACA) as its President. Born and brought up in Bombay and Mumbai, cricket has always been major part of my life. Hence I see this as an opportunity to give something back to the game we love from bottom of our hearts.

Cricket Scotland  announce the launch of CricketForce

The CricketForce Scheme is a club-based initiative aimed at rejuvenating Scotland’s cricketing facilities by encouraging cricket supporters, local communities, and their friends and families to volunteer to undertake renovations at their local cricket club in the lead up to the season. The scheme follows in the footsteps of a similar scheme run by the ECB that has been hugely successful in promoting the profile of club cricket.

We are hoping that as many cricket clubs sign up to the event and use it as a great opportunity to prepare their facilities and bring together their membership and communities for the start of the season.

We are targeting the last weekend of March – 27th, 28th, 29th – for the national `CricketForce` weekend where clubs participate and Cricket Scotland will be publicising and supporting the event nationwide. In fact, some clubs will be chosen for extra volunteering support with national team players coming to your club to muck in and help out for the day.

As Secretary of the Association I have now received from the Secretary of the ACA Competitions Sub-Committee, intimation of the outcome of the hearing held on February 2nd 2015 into the allegation that Bon Accord in the above match breached Association Rule 13a by fielding a player on trial, the Secretary of the Association not having been previously notified.  This hearing was by a re-constituted Sub-Committee following the decision of the Management Committee on Appeal (12 September 2014) that the Guidelines under which Clubs at the 2013 AGM authorised the Management Committee to delegate its powers under Association Rules 6a [applicable in this case] and 6b could reasonably be interpreted as requiring an opportunity to be available for Bon Accord to present its case in person. Previous postings have detailed the legal advice taken by the Association to give effect to that decision, and the actions subsequently taken to achieve this.
