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.

Robbo's equaliser saves Hearts

Reprising a match first played in 1936, Carlton and Hearts met at Grange Loan for a T20 friendly. Batting first, Carlton relied on the Beattie brothers to provide the backbone of the Carlton innings in the face of a spirited effort from the Jambos in the field.

Goalkeeping hero Henry Smith and assistant manager Austin McPhee got the Hearts reply off to a flyer, but it was inevitably left to legendary number nine John Robertson to take a single off the last ball to tie the game.
