I confess to being a little disappointed, even surprised that as at the closing date for nominations for the Junior of the Year 2018, on October 1, I have only received three nominees.

This has led me to extending the final closing date to Sunday October 7.

Astonishingly, none of the three nominations has come from a Grade 1 club, so let’s be having your names ASAP, and certainly before the final, final closing date of October 7.

Nominations to be sent to Jacksport@btinternet.com

The next meeting of the "Cricket Memories" group will be at Mannofield on Wednesday 3rd October at 2:00pm.
The group who were set up to help people living with dementia, welcomes anyone who has been diagnosed to come along, and share their memories of the game of cricket.
More information can be obtained by ringing Lesley Gray (Dementia Adviser) on 07769 366201.I am particularly happy to be involved with the promotion of this group, having met with the organisers on a number of occasions, and will be present at the October meeting at Mannofield to share my own memories of the game.

Averages & Individual Awards 2018
As clubs will be aware, following the introduction of Cricket Stats, the information for individual awards will now be taken exclusively from that source; and will be based on the scorecards as input by home teams during the season [and hopefully reviewed at the time by away sides], together with any adjustments agreed and input by Friday 21st September 2018.  Clubs have already been contacted individually where detailed issues currently appear to require clarification. The Committee also reserves the previous right to ask for scorebooks where disputes exist or figures do not add up, though it hopes that, as a result of this process, this will not be necessary.  Awards will be confirmed and publicised following the meeting of the Management Committee in the first week of October.
League Teams for 2019
Clubs are reminded that those wishing to join the Association or to enter additional teams in 2019; to apply for re-election if they failed to complete two -thirds of games in 2018; or to withdraw a team from the leagues; should give notice by 1st November 2018.  Clubs who may be contemplating merger should likewise advise by that date, producing evidence that clubs have approved any arrangement.
Depending on entries received the Committee will review the position at its November meeting, and if necessary submit proposals to the AGM on 2nd December 2018.

Bon Accord made their all round experience count at the Peoples Park where they added the Turriff Cup to the Grade 1 title they won two weeks ago.
In the final Bon Accord hit 160 runs from their allocation of 15 overs before bowling Mannofield out for 95 in a one sided final in which Usman Khan won the man-of-the-match award for his unbeaten 53 for the Links side.
In the semi-finals, the winners were given a scare by Knight Riders who bowled them out for 97 but then collapsed to 86 all out. In the other last of the four game Mannofield posted 130 of which Indy Yahathugoda hit 53 and then bowled out Cults for 60.

Cricket is a game that invokes all kind of pleasant memories for those of us of advancing years, which is why I am happy to support the work of Alzheimer Scotland who are promoting a series of meetings at Mannofield throughout the winter as from this month. The first meeting took place on Wednesday 5th September 2018.
The sharing of memories and personal stories relating to cricket has proved to deliver many positive benefits to the quality of life of people living with dementia, their families and carers.
If your club has anyone that has been diagnosed with dementia you should get in touch with a dementia adviser on 01224 644077 and make enquires about what is on offer.

And so the cricket season of 2018 is all but over, with only the Turriff Cup on Saturday to be played before we call a halt on a remarkable season of weather and cricket.
But first it would only be fair to reflect on a splendid weekend of cricket in which the initiative of Aberdeenshire Cricket Club was well and truly rewarded at Mannofield on Sunday when a celebration of all that is good in the game took place, attracting a sizeable crowd to the area’s top ground.

The Final between AGSFPs and Inverurie of the Aberdeenshire Cup has now been scheduled to be played at 13:15 on Sunday 2nd September 2018 at The Lairds Ground in Methlick. Our thanks to the Methlick Cricket Club Management Committee for accommodating this event.

And so, one of the most competitive seasons in recent years has finally reached its exciting conclusions, apart from the small matter of the Aberdeenshire Cup Final which was unfortunately postponed on Sunday morning. We also have the first playing of the T10 Aberdeen Challenge Cup, scheduled to be played this coming Sunday. An event to look forward to, bringing together the clubs in the area for a celebration of a great season. I just hope the organisers of the two red letter days for cricket in the North-East will have the common sense, not to hold them on the same day. But that's just my opinion, I will of course adhere to whatever arrangement prevails, and cover both occasions for my various outlets.

Ending this splendid season of weather and achievement at all levels in the game with a celebratory day at the home of North-East cricket, is in my book, the perfect way to sign off, bringing together all the local partners, including Mannofield, Stoneywood-Dyce, Gordonians and not least the Grades.
The initiative, promoted by Dale De Neef, Aberdeenshire’s president to wind up a season of wonderful weather in which some quality cricket has been played will see the first playing of the T10 Challenge Cup on Sunday September 2.

In a weekend of quality cricket in the Grades, it is hard to know where to begin for fear of overlooking one of the games, competitions, or notable individual performances.
So, at the risk of offending, let me say my moment of the weekend was on Sunday at Mannofield when an enthusiastic gathering from Fraserburgh hailed their teams emphatic win in the final of the Bon Accord Cup. Liam Bowie, the Broch captain was in best traditions of North-East understatement, underwhelmed by the occasion, but said “This is a great club. I am proud to be their captain.” Indeed, sir, it was a marvellous day for us all to witness a travelling support at any cricket game. I look forward to the day when every team has such appreciative fans. The 42 run win at the expense of Gordonians was achieved on the back of team effort, self-belief and a will to win, sadly not evident in the Countesswells team.
