Anand Hat Trick Seals Grammar Comeback Win

Morrison struck an important 39

FPs recorded their 2nd win of the season in a bad tempered encounter as the Allan Park welcomed cricket back to Cults.  After FPs made just 122, Cults looked well set to record a comfortable win, but the combination of some excellent pace bowling, good fielding and a sporting pitch ensured it was FPs who won by 51 runs as they dismantled Cults for just 71.  Karan Anand (3-5) grabbed the headlines with a stunning hat trick to seal the win, but he was well supported by Sajid Hammed (3-19) and by openers Rob Rutnam (2-28) and Harry Mapplebeck (1-13). There was little to note with the bat for FPs with only Geoff Morrison (39) and Rob Swiergon (16) making an impression but at least sharing a vital stand of 54.

Matchball and Club Sponsorship

Running a cricket club doesn’t get any cheaper and we need to look at every opportunity to bring in additional funds. The Committee are currently looking at options to improve our outdoor practice facilities and any sponsorship which we can find will help out enormously.

We have opportunities to suit any pocket; individuals or corporate:

  • Matchball Sponsorship @ £25 per game: You or your company will be mentioned on the website fixture list and match report with a weblink as well as promotion on our Twitter and Facebook accounts
  • Website Advertising @ £100 for 12 months: A banner or large button advertisement which will run for a year on our popular website
  • Club Sponsorship: We would be happy to discuss options for any individual or company who would like to sponsor the club or make a significant donation, which could include our playing kit, equipment and facilities at Rubislaw or Junior development.

If you, your company or anyone else that you know would be interested in anything from a single matchball sponsorship to a tailored sponsorship deal then please contact Chris Clelland by emailing treasurer@aberdeencricket.com.

FPs start with comfortable win

Sam Knudson picked up 3 wickets

FPs cruised to a comfortable 8 wicket win against Crescent as the 2017 season kicked off on a cold day at Rubislaw. FPs were always in control having reduced their opponents to 22 for 5 within the 1st ten overs, before eventually dismissing them for 85.  The wickets shared round with Karan Anand 3 for 11 and Sam Knudson 3 for 24 doing the bulk of the damage.  FPs had an early scare when they lost Alex Keith in the 1st over of the reply but Geoff Morrison (13 not out) steadied the ship and aggressive innings by Rob Swiergon (25) and Karan Anand (40 not out) led FPs to victory with 25 overs to spare.
