Literally years after our last round of 21 questions we caught up with Callum one quiet Saturday morning as he was going through his usual professional pre-game preparations …..

Another Wet Saturday but lots of cricket ahead

Weather again put paid to cricket on Saturday as 1s game at Cults was rained off, the 4th rained off game against Cults this season. 2s were awarded a walkover by Stonehaven which boosted their league position. There was at least some cricket on the Sunday as the 3rd XI lost by 80 runs to Mannofeild in the development league.

There is a lot of cricket planned this week with the development team in action on Tuesday against Gordonians at Rubislaw before the 7s on Wednesday as FPs take on Knightriders and Inverurie. It is then back to league business for 1s against Gordonians at Countesswells with the 2nds having a free league week. However 2s do have a big game on Sunday as they tackle Methlick in the cup semi final.

Rain Wrecks Saturday

Heavy rain overnight which continued for most of the day meant there was no chance of play at either Rubislaw or Methlick today. While FPs have been lucky so far managing to complete all 3 games previously in dubious conditions at times, this represented the 3rd week out of 4 for some sides with no cricket. With games on Saturday and Sunday next week, all sides will be hoping for improvement in the weather. 1sts take on Knightriders at home on Saturday and then face Cults away in the cup on Sunday. 2nds have a free Saturday and take on Stonehaven in the cup on Sunday.

Action from Saturday
