Just a wee follow-up from a recent e-mail regarding workshops Supporting Coaches & Volunteer Management for Clubs which will be offered free of charge to clubs and communities across Scotland. (There is commitment to deliver 40 workshops in 2016/17 with priority given to community sport hubs, DCI clubs & priority clubs identified by regional sporting networks.)

Subsequent to preparation of the fixture list for the season, we have been advised that – due to University commitments – while the ground at Kings College will now be available on June 11th and 25th, the May Festival means that it will not be available on May 14, 21 or 28.  We have been advised that Duthie Park also will not be available on June 11, and that the recent inclement weather means that the remedial work scheduled for Allan Park has also been further delayed by a minimum of a month.

It was first blood to last season’s champions Bon Accord over close rivals Cults-Artisans-St Ronald as the two sides clashed for the first time at this year in a game relocated to the Burnett Park at Banchory, as remedial work to the Allan Park following last December’s flooding slipped further into the future.

Good afternoon Mr Jones

Thank you for your email. The extract from the user group meeting is correct.  As Mr S McBain, TLG Contracts Manager is currently on annual leave I would like to clarify this with him upon his return.  We will require authorisation from yourself and AECL as contacts should this proceed. This will apply only when TLG deem the pitches unplayable.

As part of your clubs inclusion in the `Thriving Clubs` Programme, I would like to invite you to register for the `CoolCricket` Workshop for Young Cricket Ambassadors and Social Media Champions delivered by Sports Marketing Network and Cricket Scotland.

Despite much improved weather on Saturday, damage done to pitches during the previous week meant that barely half of games scheduled for the opening weekend of the Grades cricket season resulted in positive outcomes.

Last season’s Grade 1 champions, Bon Accord, however gave early notice that they are unlikely to release their grip on the league as, with Nawaz Mirza and Fazal Awan once again leading the way, they comfortably beat Ellon at the Links, while at Kings College Hirupam Doly recorded the season’s first century as promoted Gordonians beat Lahore Karahi, and AGSFPs made the most of home advantage against Mannofield at Rubislaw.

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.

wytbu8  Apr 26 2016 - 7:26am   

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.”
