The Cricket Section is one of the original sports sections within the FP Club and maintains 3 senior teams after agreement was reached to enter a 3rd XI in the 2013 campaign. We have in the past run junior teams comprising Under 15 and Under 17 boys from the School which is supportive of the Section although this does depend on the talent available in the relevant years at the School.
We did run two sides in the local Aberdeen Grades but this was expanded to three teams in 2013. Currently our 1st XI is in Grade 1 and finished 2nd in season 2016, the 2nd XI is in Grade 3 and the 3rd XI play in Grade 4. In 2017 we have also entered a team in the Strathmore Union North development league.
We have several qualified coaches in the Club and liaise with the School Physical Education staff to provide additional opportunities for the youngsters to learn about the game.
We play home matches at Rubislaw on Harlaw Road, currently on an artificial pitch which the Cricket Section financed themselves. Regular net practices are held at Rubislaw on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from April to August with winter nets held at The Grammar School gym. For those interested in the social side of the game as well, various events such as a Cheese and Wine, Golf outing, quiz nights and Dinner are organized during the year.
We are always on the look-out for new players who are keen to have an enjoyable game of cricket at the standard of your choice and to join a club with a friendly atmosphere. If you are interested in joining the Club or have any other questions about the Club or this website then please fill in the contact form and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
