Freshy on fire for Carlton

Aussie left-armer Tom Freshwater returned the remarkable figures of 7 for 8 as Carlton trounced visitors Stoneywood-Dyce on Saturday to maintain their third place position in the league.

Freshy was also in the wickets on Sunday but his efforts weren't enough to see off the challenge of Grange in the Scottish Cup semi-final. There was, however, one other important victory in the weekend, as the Carlton 4th XI won to go top of ESCA Division 7.

Weekend of ups and downs

There was disappointment for Carlton at senior and Under 15 level at the weekend as the 1st XI lost at home to Watsonians while the Under 15s failed to progress in the NatWest Club Championship, despite a fine effort from skipper Angus Beattie.

The Threes and Fours continued their winning streaks, however, as they kept in touch at the top of their respective leagues. There were also wins for the 2nd XI, who defeated Murrayfield DAFS, and our kwik cricketers at Ayr.

On Sunday, there was a comprehensive win for the Threes at Grange Loan, with a fine 50 for Rob Atkin. And four Carlton players featured for the Wildcats as they beat Cornwall at the Rose Bowl.
