Matt Barker kept his grip on the catching cup and Martin Worsley was the recipient of the Moir award for securing the Small Clubs Cup.  Chris Clelland was voted by his fellow players as Clubman of the year and Geoff Morrison picked up the Sandy Davidson Memorial Trophy.

Gilles Gardner was on hand to take some excellent photos and more can be found at

Photos from Turriff Cup Final

FPs may have lost the Turriff Cup Final but if there were awards for club photography there would only be 1 winner. Thanks to the brilliance of Gilles Gardner, the whole game is captured in over 1000 quality pictures. If you want to relive Mike Nattrass’ dropped skier frame by frame, Rob Swiergon’s immaculate forward defensive, Geoff Morrison improbable rebound catch, Paul McDonald’s unbelievable grab or Karan Anand’s 1st ball duck then follow the link below. There are also many other great pictures which capture the day superbly.

FPs Crash Bons Party Again

If you are ever having a coronation or a celebration then don’t invite the Grammar FPs cricket team as they have managed to build up a nice habit of ruining these events. Bon Accord looked certain to complete a 100% record in 2015, until FPs defeated them of the final day and incredibly lightening struck twice as FPs did it again in 2016 as they easily moved to a 5 wicket win. Bon Accord were confirmed as champions, but it was only the 3rd game they have lost in the last year, all to FPs.

Karan Anand took 4 for 33 and then struck an aggressive 43 but the key strikes came from Sajid Hameed who removed danger men Awan and Mirza cheaply.  FPs then batted with aggression as Morrison with 23 and Davey 30, ensured Anand’s efforts were well supported. Continue reading
