Following the cup draws made at the November meeting, in the Aberdeenshire Cup the 1st XI have drawn Banchory at home in the quarter final and will play either Methlick, Bon Accord or 2nd St, Ronald away in the semi finals.
The 2nd XI are in the Reid Cup and play in the quarter final away to Academy and if succesful will potentially face last years ‘winners’ Kemnay-Kintore in the semi finals if they can overcome Turriff.
In the Johnston Rose Bowl, 3rds are drawn away to 2nd Ellon and if succesful will play 2nd Methlick or 2nd Banchory away in the semi finals.
Reid Cup Final (second attempt) played on 31st August 2013
The scene for the Reid Cup final between 2nd AGSFPs and Kemnay-Kintore (KK) was set in Burnett Park, Banchory – one of the most beautiful grounds in Aberdeen shire especially on a glorious sunny day. The first attempt to play this final failed when nature intervened with a rain and the game had to be abandoned.
FPs lineup for the Andy Parkin 6s
FPs failed to emulate their 2012 efforts in the Andy Parkin Memorial Sixes as they finished 3rd having lost to GUCC in their opening match. Having made the 2012 final, FPs had hoped to go one better, but a poor bowling display in the opening game sent them out. They recovered to defeat The BBC in their 2nd game, Geoff Morrison making 49, out to the last ball of the innings as he and Gary Stuart racked up 63 in 36 balls. A much improved bowling display and wicket for Guru ensured FPs won easily.
In the 3rd/4th play off, FPs made the highest score of the day 83 as Guru cracked 49 not out in an exciting batting display. Veteran Alan Redhead was resigned to keep wicket and claimed a stumping off Morrison, before returning to bowl the final over with 4 slips in place. The wily veteran easily managed to defend the 40 runs he had to play with as FP ran out comfortable winners.
Guru claimed player of the tournament and overall it was agreat day which raised a lot of money for Maggies.
