Arbroath end home winning run

An inability to capitalise on several good batting partnerships cost Carlton dear as Arbroath United halted Carlton's 12 month unbeaten league run at Grange Loan.

Although, the 2s and 5s were also defeated, there were impressive wins for both the 3s and 4s. On Saturday, a Chris McAllister 50 helped the 4s to a 7 wicket win at Livingston, while Sunday saw the 3s see off the challenge of Westquarter & Redding at Grange Loan.
