All rounder Cheeky saves the day

For the second home game in a row Carlton recovered from a scratchy start to their innings to post a competitive total, as skipper Chayank Gosain put in a fine performance with bat and ball to see of the challenge of visitors Watsonians.

Carlton women also earned a vital league win at Grange Loan against West, thanks to a great knock from Heather Tait. And there were wins for the Fours against Old Contemptibles and the Sunday XI at Manderston.

Mixed weather, mixed fortunes

On a weekend marred by rain, the club's results turned out to be as mixed as the weather. A young Carlton side were on the wrong side of a reduced overs game at Forfarshire, while the 3s were on the receiving end of a heavy defeat from Falkland 2s at Grange Loan.

There was a narrow loss for the 4s at Peebles, despite 78 from young Pete Gill, but the 5s won a thriller at Marchmont 3s and the 2s came out on top on Sunday against Marchmont 1s.

Ollie & Ali to the fore in week 6

Some tremendous batting from Ali Shah and Ollie Rae on Saturday and Sunday respectively, brought impressive wins for the Carlton men's and women's sides.

Ali's spectacular 83 from 55 balls, allied to some high quality pace bowling, saw off the challenge off Heriot's, while Ollie's classy 150 took her side to their third straight league win. The Twos were rained off at Freuchie, while the Threes, Fours and Fives managed to beat the rain but not their opposition.

League and cup success again

Carlton earned wins in league and cup at the weekend, as centuries from Michael Herdman (against Aberdeenshire on Saturday at Grange Loan) and Fraser Watts (at Clydesdale on Sunday) took their sides to victory on each occasion.

The Twos edged home in the rain at Kelso, while the Threes tied at Holy Cross. Although the Fives lost out on Saturday, there was success on Sunday for our Fours and our kwik cricketers at a tournament in Gala.

Women win again and Harry takes 5

Following the entertainment of the tied T20 between Carlton and Hearts on Friday evening, Saturday turned out to be something of a damp squib with the rain washing out all the scheduled matches.

However, Sunday dawned much brighter, allowing the Carlton women to earn their second successive win in the national premier league with a 7 wicket victory at RH Corstorphine. And young Harry Simpson took 5 wickets as the 3s defeated St Boswells at Grange Loan.
