Welcome to Carlton Cricket Club
Carlton are the current champions of Scotland. We run 6 senior league teams including a women's XI, 11 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.

The social highlight of Christmas 2016 is sure to be Bob and Eric’s Christmas Quiz Night. Renowned quizmaster Fantasy Bob will be supported by his festive sidekick Eric Edwards as they deliver several rounds of brainteasers, including their ever popular music and picture rounds.
There’ll be mulled wine and mince pies available to add to the festive spirit and entry fee for teams of up to 6 is just £15. Book your tables now! Non-members very welcome!
The 2016 senior awards saw Hugo Southwell and Chayank Gosain pick up the 1st XI batting and bowling prizes, while the main women’s awards went to skipper Ruth Willis (batting) and Heather Tait (bowling).
Cheeky and Ruth also picked up the respective Player’s Player of the Year Awards, while Hugo Southwell was, to no-one’s surprise the runaway winner of the Six Hitting trophy and Cheeky also won the club fielding prize.
Carlton players were out in force at the annual ESCA dinner as guest speaker Sandy Strang handed out the 2016 trophies.
3rd XI duo Alan MacLeod and Paul Kentish received the top bowling and batting awards respectively for ESCA Division Three, while 4th XI stalwart Eric Edwards picked up the Division Six batting award. There were also individual awards for juniors Ruairidh Main and Murray Johnson with the 5th XI winning an ESCA Fair Play Award.
The last few weeks of the season saw a very successful junior awards evening, our women competing in the Scottish Cup Final (and becoming Scottish League champions by default) and our young Last Man Stands squad coming within a whisker of becoming Scottish champions.
At the awards evening, first teamers Mario Olivier, Fraser Watts, Ali Evans, Chayank Gosain and Stevie Gilmour presented trophies to an array of talented Carlton youngsters.
Carlton completed the 2016 season on Saturday by becoming Scottish champions for the second time in six years. Batting first, top knocks from Watts (73), McCann (65) and Southwell (85) took Carlton to 282 for 6 in the national championship play off match.
Brilliant spells from Ali Evans and Omar Ahmad then had Clydesdale rocking before four wickets from Arun Pillai and a run out from Mario Olivier made Carlton Scottish champions.
The Carlton 3rd XI finished the league season by sealing promotion from ESCA Division Three with a win at Linlithgow. There were also wins for the 2s, 4s (albeit via a concession) and the 5s (thanks to a boundary off the last ball).
And at Grange Loan Carlton celebrated their Eastern Premier League title win with a huge 225 run victory over Stoneywood-Dyce, with Mario Olivier hitting his maiden century for the club in a total of 388 for 5.
Carlton CC is also very grateful for the generous support of The Plum Trust and our Patrons.
