Nitin Ganesh Shetty 1981 - 2015

It is with deep sadness that I must announce the passing of former Portcullis player Nitin Shetty who died suddenly in Mumbai last week at the age of 34.

Our deepest sympathies go out to his wife and young son and to all his family and friends at this difficult time.

Nitin was well liked at the club and fondly remembered since he returned home to India. He was not just a hell of a cricketer but a genuinely nice guy the likes of which we are unlikely to see again any time soon.

Grampian Grind Down City Centre Green Caps

Saturday July 11th saw Portcullis drawn away to Grampian CC in the semi final of the Johnston Rose Bowl.

The winners of this match would face a tough but thoroughly sporting Turriff side in the final. For both teams this would be a huge incentive.

Magnificent Mitch Stuns Siyapa

Match six of Portcullis's 2015 grade four season saw the city Centre green caps on their travels to Sheddocksley 2 as they came up against league leaders Siyapa CC.

Although Siyapa are new to Saturday grades cricket, many of their players were not. In fact five of their eleven had played for Portcullis CC in the past!

Portcullis Cricket Club Wants YOU!!

Freddie and Brett at the 2005 Ashes. It is that time of the year once again. Winter is behind us and spring is once again in the air. It is time for men and women of all ages and stages to don the whites, dust down the kit bag, oil the bat and do those stretches.

Indoor Practice on Sat 14th Feb.

Indoor PracticeStarting on the same week as the 2015 World Cup, Portcullis begin their less than ardous pre-season training on Saturday 14th February between 12.45pm and 3.15pm (not the 7th as  previously intimated).

The pre-season training is, in fact, a welcome return of indoor nets for the City Centre Green Caps. It is being held at Sheddocksley Sports Centre. It will consist of some much needed bowling and batting practice as we once again welcome the sound of leather upon willow.

Portcullis are always on the lookout for new members and this would be an ideal situation for anyone wishing to give us a try. You will be made most welcome!

Portcullis win Reid Cup in Cup Final Thriller

Saturday August 16th saw Portcullis take on AGSFP 2nds in The Reid Cup Final at Duthie Park One. This Final would have contrasting circumstances for each side. For Portcullis it was a chance to salvage some glory after being relegated from Grade Three. On the other hand, AGSFP 2nds, having won the Grade Three Title were in search of an elusive League/Cup double.

Academy Police Portcullis To The Hightower.

Match Eight of the 2013/14 Grades season saw Portcullis again at Home. This time saw the Green Caps take on League Leaders and fellow City Centre side Academy CC. 

Academy CC would prove to be a very tough nut to crack as they come into this match fresh from a six wicket victory over Grade Three favourites Kemnay-Kintore CC the week before.
