Dear All,

You will be pleased to know that the proposal and bid from Alhikmah Foundation SCIO was unanimously approved by the Aberdeen City Council’s Finance, Policy and Resources Committee on September 20th 2017. It is because of your support and words of encouragement that we have been successful. We are grateful for your support and the trust you have put in our ambitions to transform the playing fields to bring communities together and improve the health and wellbeing of people. We look forward to working with you and keeping you informed as the project develops.

Hello Cricketers of Aberdeen & Shire,

My name is Aqeel Ajazi, I am the Captain of Cults CC (1st XI), Secretary of the Aberdeen Evening Cricket League ….. and in any spare time I have, I am a Trustee for the Alhikmah Foundation SCIO (Charity No.SC044230)

So, when the Nelson Street Playing fields came up for sale,
www.urbanfields.org were united in purchasing these playing fields and looking to turning them into facilities the entire Aberdeen Community can use. The key point for this forum is, the proposal for 5 Cricket Nets that will be open to all, and all year round. I think everyone will agree, there is nowhere in Aberdeen that can offer this facility, the nearest is Sheddocksley, and most would agree it is not fit for purpose. So, can I call upon your support?

On Wednesday 12th July Cults succeeded in winning the Oxy Cup for the third year running. This year they defeated Knightriders, who had set them 130 to win. Cults successfully chased the total down for the loss of 3 wickets (plus two retirees) in the 18th over.

Cults put in a good, economical bowling performance as non of their five bowlers went for over 28. This was backed-up by three run outs in the field. This occurred despite an aggressive 22 from opener Siva. He managed two fours and a six within the first three overs until his dismissal, lbw, to Himanshu (2/28) Unfortunatly for Knightriders, the other opener (Vijay) was run out in the next over to leave them 31 for 2 and Somu followed for just 1, (caught off Himanshu) three balls later. Vikas and Rashid tried to rebuild the innings over the next four and a half overs. Their partnership reached 20 but Vikas fell for 10, caught off Swapnil. Numbers 6 to 8 all chipped in with teen scores but only Rashid passed Siva's 22 to reach his 30no. Mayanil (2/24 picked up a couple of wickets to keep Knightriders in check and, despite Malli's 19no from 8, two run outs ensured there was no late flourish. This meant that Knightriders finished their alloted 20 overs on 129 for 8. (plus 1 retiree)
