Despite a delayed start at Grange Loan the sunshine returned as Carlton earned a 6 wicket win over Aberdeenshire, with Gordon Drummond taking three wickets and Fraser Watts notching yet another half century.
Although the 2s were washed out, the 3s had a crushing win at Marchmont, while the 4s slipped to defeat at Peffermill against Melrose. And on Sunday a good bowling performance by the 5s against Penicuik 3s counted for nothing as the rain had the last word.
Last weekend's perfect summer weather was a distant memory as a damp and bleak Saturday saw Carlton lose out by 37 runs in a reduced overs contest at Arbroath. At Grange Loan, Carlton comfortably saw off the challenge of Dunnikier by 9 wickets, while the 4s kept up their good form with a win at Inverleith against Drummond Trinity 2s.
Sadly, the rain was the only winner on Sunday with the 3s and 5s matches both falling victim to the weather.
Carlton earned Premier League and Scottish cup wins over Watsonians and Falkland in a weekend of milestones. 16 year old Calum Everett had his best ever top team bowling figures, while 15 year old Ruairidh Main hit his first senior century.
There was also a century for Kyle Macpherson in a win for the 2s at Holy Cross, while Fraser Watts celebrated his birthday with an unbeaten 85 at Falkland on Sunday to round off another 5 from 6 weekend.
There were wins galore for Carlton as the Women's side plus the 1s, 2s, 3s and 5s all notched up league victories. At Grange Loan Carlton got back to winning ways over Falkland with Fraser Watts and Hugo Southwell in the runs and Ali Evans picking up 4 wickets in an 81 run win.
The 2s and 3s also had good wins on Saturday, while Sunday saw the women complete the double over GWC and the 5s complete a convincing win over MDAFS 4s at Peffermill.
A weekend of mixed weather saw a largely inexperienced Carlton side slip to their first defeat of the season against Forfarshire, while the women got their East League campaign off to a flyer with a win over George Watson’s College at Craiglockhart.
The Threes beat Selkirk in a low scoring thriller at the Meadows, the Fives lost an enjoyable encounter against Watsonians Fours at Grange Loan on Sunday and the Fours fell victim to an injury time winner at Hampden Park.
