Skipper to the fore in final friendly win

Carlton's final pre-season match saw them entertain Watsonians in a 40-over encounter at Grange Loan. There was a debut for young Australian amateur Tom Freshwater, who contributed to a fine rearguard batting display, spearheaded by skipper Gordon Drummond.

In reply, three wickets for young seamer Ruari Macpherson saw the home side to a 39 run win. On Sunday, a 2nd XI squad won their friendly clash at Myreside by 6 wickets.

Pre-season double header for Carlton

With a trio of experienced players unavailable new skipper Gordon Drummond led a very young Carlton side against touring sides Benwell Hill and Barnard Castle.

The blustery and cold conditions made cricket difficult but Carlton came out on top after a couple of tight run chases. On Saturday Gordon Drummond and Omar Ahmad starred with the bat, and Omar led with the ball on Sunday before Haris Aslam and Chayank Gosain saw their side home to a two wicket win.

Stevie Gilmour's Summer Cricket Camps

After a gap of two years, we're delighted to welcome back Stevie Gilmour as the lead coach for the annual summer cricket camps at Grange Loan.

Stevie, who is a highly experienced UKCC Head Coach, will be running both kwik camps and hardball camps during the weeks beginning 21st July, 28th July and 4th August. As these camps are hugely popular we recommend registering quickly as places are limited. As always, the camps are open to non-members.

Fraggolf hits the mark!

The said it would never work, but the inaugural Carlton fraggolf tournament, brainchild of club captain Fraser 'Fraggle' Watts, proved to be a great success at the club's pre-season day at Grange Loan.

After the hard work of getting the ground ready for the cricket season, hordes of enthusiastic fraggolf foursomes filled the ground. Despite a few queries about the rules, which were dealt with assertively by the sport's administrator (i.e Fraggle), a great day was had by all.

Cricket Teas - appeal for helpers!

Cricket is a game of traditions. And there is no tradition more important to the average cricketer than the quality of their cricket teas.

As the 2014 season approaches Carlton finds itself on a bit of a sticky wicket. The well-earned retiral of some long-serving members of our tea teams has left the club in need of some reinforcements in the kitchen. So we’re looking for some enthusiastic volunteers - if you think you might be able to help us out please read on!
