In seven of the prospective matches, not a single ball was bowled, but there was a glimmer of light in the Granite City where the derby clash between Aberdeenshire and Stoneywood-Dyce got under way after a delayed start at Mannofield.

By then Aberdeenshire, sent into bat, had reached 44-1 with Graeme Tomlinson the man out, caught off the bowling of Jan Stander for 19.
Player-coach Neil MacRae was not out on 18 and Kenny Reid had made just two when the match was called off.
During the short amount of play that did take place there was encouragement for the Saltires coaching staff as Gordon Goudie confirmed his return to fitness by bowling five testing overs at a cost of just three runs.
