Portcullis Maintains 100% Record

Last week we had a no opponents and no pitch. This week we have opponents but no pitch. Huntly's new wicket will not be ready in time, so we have agreed yet again to postpone the game in the interests of making sure we keep our whites clean for another week.

Next week's postponement will be against Stonehaven.

Season fails to start...

2nd Mannofield are not able to raise a side for the opening game of the 2008 season so, in the interests of playing cricket, we have accepted a postponement instead. A date for the rearranged fixture has not yet been set.

Practice Sessions and Indoor Nets

Regular outdoor practice sessions will be starting again after the clocks change. They will be on Wednesday evenings on the plastic wicket in Duthie Park, starting at 6pm. Vice skipper Dave Cox is going to be running the sessions and is planning to make them rather more structured than they have been in the past. We don't have much light at this time of year, so please be prompt so we can get a good session in before it gets too dark.

Venue : Duthie Park

Time : 6.00pm prompt

Day : Every Wednesday, starting on 2nd April
