Following the extended Covid hibernation period which affected one and all, Portcullis Cricket Club, based here in Duthie Park, Aberdeen is glad to say…
What does that mean?

2019 draws to a close.

We come towards the end of another year. Fresh from the historic truimph of Ben Stokes winning Sports Personality of The Year here in Aberdeen. It was a historic year for Portcullis Cricket Club as well. 2019 was the first time the club had won Grade Three. A remarkable achievement in what was a tough division, four or five teams would not looked out of place topping this league. The challenge of Grade Two cricket (barring possible grades reconstruction) will be both exciting and challenging. 2019 also saw back to back Reid Cup Finals but also sadly back to back Cup Final defeats. Both times soundly beaten by the better team on each day.


It’s that time of the year. Winter (hopefully) is finally behind us. Spring is once again in the air. It’s time for Men and Women of all ages to don the whites, dust down the kit bag, oil the bat and do the stretches. It is time to hear willow upon leather, see long sunny days, utter cries of howzat, regale in tales of cricketing derring–do, preferably in a nice environment after the dust has settled and pleasantries exchanged.

Yes folks cricket is back!! Portcullis CC are once again preparing for another season of scintillating cricket and even more stimulating conversation. We’ll probably finish up with reasonable cricket and, at best, a good laugh but we can all dream!!

As always Portcullis are always on the lookout for new players. We welcome ALL newcomers to our club. Whether you are a seasoned campaigner or someone new to playing the game come along and join us. We are about to embark on another season of adventurous Grade Three Cricket on a Saturday and recreational friendly cricket on a Sunday and we would love you to join us.

WhatsApp Report on the 2018 Reid Cup Final

The 2018 Reid Cup Final was written in a unique way - different from the previous reports written on this website. As the Chief Reporter was on holiday at the time we had to come up with an alternative match report. This we did by inserting the live Portcullis WhatsApp feed  on the day of the Cup Final. If you wish to read the report please click on or copy and paste into the server the link below:
