History

Aberdeenshire Cricket Club has four senior teams (SNCL Premier, Strathmore Union, Aberdeen Grade 1, Aberdeen Grade 4) and a host of junior teams (kwik cricket, U11, U13, U15 and U17).

At the 2008 Lloyds TSB Scotland SNCL awards, Aberdeenshire received the Magners Club of the Year Award in addition to the flag as Division 1 winners. Ken McCurdie also received the Groundsman of the Year, in recognition of his efforts in connection with the staging of One-Day Internationals at Mannofield for the first time.

Aberdeenshire featured in Sky Sports 'Clublife' series during the 2008 summer of England Test matches. The show saw the team coached by Ian Botham before featuring in, and eventually win, a Twenty 20 tournament in Windsor.

Season of 2009 was a historic season in Aberdeenshire Cricket Club's history. The club won the SNCL Premier League and the Scottish Cup. This was the first time in 13 years since the club won a league and cup double, and the 1st time in its history since it has won the SNCL Premier League.

Home Ground

Mannofield Park in the Mannofield district of Aberdeen, Scotland is the regular home of the Scotland national cricket team and Aberdeenshire Cricket Club. It is also known as Citylets Mannofield for international fixtures.
