Welcome to Carlton Cricket Club
Carlton is one of Scotland's leading cricket clubs. We run 6 senior league teams including a women's XI, 9 junior teams and have a thriving junior coaching programme for boys and girls. In all, more than 400 members play and watch their cricket at Grange Loan, Edinburgh - undoubtedly one of Scotland's most beautiful grounds. New players at all levels very welcome - email firstname.lastname@example.org.

A sodden outfield at Mannofield led to the cancellation of Carlton's Eastern Premier League match at Aberdeenshire, meaning that the title will come to Grange Loan. Well done to all the squad on a great league season.
Although the 2s and 4s were also washed out, the 3s beat Marchmont 2s at Grange Loan on Sunday to reach the brink of promotion from ESCA Division Three. No such luck for the 5s though as their (mostly) young side fell to a heavy defeat at Edinburgh CC.
Carlton are now one win away from the Eastern Premier League title after they defeated Arbroath at Grange Loan on Saturday thanks, in large part, to a 200 run partnership between Fraser Watts and Hugo Southwell.
Elsewhere, youngster Murray Johnson took 6 wickets in only his 2nd game for the 3s as they beat Division 3 leaders Drummond Trinity. Fin Thornton was also in the wickets for the 5s, while the 4s won at home on Sunday.
It was an afternoon of changing fortunes for Carlton on Saturday as they recovered from a perilous 71 for 7 at Myreside to eventually defeat fellow title challengers Watsonians by 39 runs.
While the Twos also got back to winning ways with a home win over Holy Cross, there was frustration for the Fours who had their match abandoned, while the Fives lost a tight match at the Meadows. The Threes stay in second spot in ESCA Division 3 after an impressive win over Boroughmuir.
The annual Carlton Cricket Week is taking place during the first week in August. After the U15s on Monday, it's the turn of the U11s on Tuesday. Wednesday sees a kwik cricket festival during the day with the glamour match in the evening - Carlton Women v a Scotland Women's XI.
On Thursday our U13s are in action before the U15s host Clydesdale on Friday afternoon in a Scottish Cup tie. Everything is rounded off on Friday evening with the U11 derby and BBQ.
Carlton find themselves with a slender lead at the top of the Eastern Premier League after Saturday's matches. Leaders Watsonians slipped up at Heriot's while Carlton had a thumping win at Falkland, with Arun Pillai hitting his maiden Carlton century.
The results for the 2s, 3s, 4s & 5s are best glossed over, but on Sunday Carlton women reached the Scottish Cup semi final with a win over Galloway as Ollie Rae hit a sensational 171*.
