Scotland's amazing, historic win on Sunday has handed the Aberdeenshire Grades a wonderful marketing tool, especially as three of the victorious side were born in Aberdeen, making for the stuff of dreams for any aspiring young cricketer from the area.

The race for the Grade 1 title took a surprise turn after league leaders Bon Accord were stunned by Mannofield in a high scoring game at Harlaw. Bon Accord probably thought they had done enough to win, clocking up 231 of which Akhlaq Bashir hit a superb 76, only to have his knock bettered by Callum Martin who scored 80 to enable his side to ease home by two wickets. Tauqeer Malik, the Bon Accord captain said “It’s tough at the top, but great to have such a competitive set up. Long may it continue.” The defeat of the new leaders, enabled last season’s champions AGSFPs to pull level at the top of the Grade 1 after they amassed 302 for the loss of eight wickets, Karan Anand top scoring with 73, while captain Rob Swiergon kept his good run of form going with a solid innings of 57. The Rubislaw side were pushed all the way by lowly Academy who thanks to an amazing knock by Abhinav Kache of 110 made a very respectable 244 for eight. Inverurie were convincing seven wicket winners against Grampian who they bowled out for 135, and dark horses for the Grade 1 title Knight Riders were eight wickets winners away to Crescent, one of the other front runners. Stoneywood-Dyce cruised to victory, bowling Grampian all out for 84 after setting them 189 to win.
In Grade 2, Gordonians were shocked by Fraserburgh who set the visitors a total of 191 before bowling the Countesswells side out for 153.
In Grade 3, there were wins for Crathie and Portcullis at the expense of 2nd Grampian and 2nd Stonehaven Thistle respectively.

Ellon Gordon stole the headlines in the Grades games, setting a record total score for the Aberdeenshire Grades at Rubislaw where they racked up an astonishing 459 for the loss of only one wicket from their allocation of 45 overs, stunning 2nd AGSFPs in the process. Opener Brian Veldsman led the way with 170 in the company of fellow opener Stuart Davies who was on an unbeaten 155 when the Ellon Gordon innings closed. First wicket down batsman Jon Barrett also got in on the act, hitting 107 not out. Not surprisingly the home side failed to match the fireworks of the visitors, but battled on, valiantly reaching 122 for seven from their 45 overs in the Grade 2 fixture.
In the top Grades game of the day, the shoot out in the sun at the Links in Grade 1, Bon Accord just held off the challenge of last years league champions AGSFPs. Set 190 to win, AGSFPs looked down and out at 86 for eight, but battled back to come within 35 runs of the home total, thanks to a half century stand between captain Rob Swiergon(67) and Roland Knudson(37). On a day of fine performances home captain Tauqeer Malik stared with the ball, taking four for 18, while Andy Win rescued the home batting with a patient 56. Knudson made claims for man of the match with four for 27 when Bon Accord batted. Malik admitted to being a relieved man at the end of the game, and said “This was a great game of cricket, AGSFPs pushed us all the way”. Swiergon was gracious in defeat and said “They probably just about deserved to win. We gave them 30 runs too many when they batted, but it was a great advert for the local game. There’s a lot of cricket to be played before the title is decided”. Elsewhere in the division Knight Riders and Crescent kept their title hopes alive with solid wins, while on any other day Gordonians 298 for three wickets would have represented a huge score in Grade 2, but given Ellon Gordon’s massive total it paled into insignificance, but was nevertheless a clear message that their 209 win will give the Gordon Park side something to think about before the two meet later on in the season.
In Grade 3 only one game was started down at Balmoral but was washed out after the first innings whilst the other games in Grade 3 were not played due to clubs unable to raise teams. An alarming state of affairs this early in the season.

Sunday saw AGSFPs make amends for a disappointing Saturday as they took on Grampian in the first round of the Aberdeenshire Cup by setting up a grand total of 303 for 5 led by an unbeaten 177 by Karan Anand ably supported with 62 by Connor McKinney setting a total that the Grampian home side could only muster 81 as the guts of the Grampian batsman were bowled out by Harry Mapplebeck taking 5 for 18.

The wonderful early summer weather has certainly given Grades cricket a great opportunity to showcase itself, a chance grabbed by a number of batsmen who amply demonstrated their skills in the May sunshine. In Grade 1, Akhlaq Bashir blasted his way to 126 for Bon Accord in a game at the Links where they beat Academy, while John Varghese stroked his way to an unbeaten 111 for Grampian in the victory over Mannofield. There were also solid knocks from Karan Anand (56) for AGSFPs and a match winning unbeaten 84 for Rowan Vaduganathan for Knight Riders at Kellands Park, while in the same match Chris Watson hit 59 for Inverurie.
