Shell CC retain the AECL Crown ....only just, as Knightriders made it one of the closest finishes to a season in a long while ..
Knightriders received a walkover from their last game to sit at the top of the table with 12 points and a healthy 462 margin.
The Knights threw down the gauntlet and asked the chasing pack: 'Catch us if you can??!'
From the pack, Cults assault faltered as they were forced to scratch against Shell CC, leaving them on 10 points. Even after a big win against Rockhoppers.
That left Shell CC with the improbable task of trying to overhaul Knightriders superior margin. Shell had to play Grampian Strikers in the last game of their season knowing they had to beat Strikers by a margin of 100 runs to stand any chance of topping Knightriders, as just a win was not enough.

As you may / may not be aware, one of our long time members Dave Turner (DT - always wears the Yellow Helmet when fielding in close & batting!!) was diagnosed with Non Hodgkin Lymphoma this time last year and got the all clear later in the year,
Since then, he has been dedicating his spare time to raising funds for Friends of Anchor who helped him and the family through the tough time - in January, Garioch RFC had a charity match between a DT XV and a Garioch XV.
