Welcome to Carlton Cricket Club
Carlton is one of Scotland's leading cricket clubs. We run 5 senior league teams, a women's side, 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 email@example.com.
Carlton got their season off to a winning start as they saw off the challenge of visitors Heriot's by 5 wickets at Grange Loan. At the same time at Peffermill the new Carlton 5th XI made their bow, losing out to their visitors from Fife despite a fine 50 from Keith Murray.
The Twos won a tight one at Kelso, while the Threes failed to contend with an early season wicket at Haddington. And on Sunday the Fours had a solid win over Dunbar at Grange Loan.

Heriot’s will be the first visitors to Grange Loan for the 2016 league season on Saturday, when Stevie Gilmour’s side get their 2016 league campaign underway. The following day, it’s the Fours who are at home to Dunbar in an ESCA Division 6 match.
Saturday sees Rob Thornton’s 2nd XI head to Kelso in the Championship, while Paul Kentish’s 3rd XI travel to Haddington. Pride of place, though, goes to the debut of the Carlton 5th XI, who host Glenrothes 4s at Peffermill.
Carlton will be making history this year by fielding a 5th XI in the ESCA leagues. Inspired by the need to give more weekend cricket to our players - particularly our up and coming youngsters - the new side promises to be an exciting mix of youth and experience.
With 5 weekend sides plus a women's team, we have cricket to suit all abilities. To top up our pool of players - both regular and occasional - we're always happy to welcome new players.
Carlton Head Coach Stevie Gilmour will be running his highly popular cricket camps at Grange Loan once again this summer, catering for young cricketers up to the age of 14 and starting from as young as 5.
The camps, which will run on the weeks beginning 18th July, 25th July and 8th August, are open to non-members. As popular weeks tend to book up very early we recommend downloading Stevie's registration form and getting your place secured as soon as you can!
In a big step forward for girls' cricket in the East of Scotland, the first ever girls' indoor league was held in January and February, with four teams - Carlton, East Lothian, Forth Valley and Mary Erskines taking part.
The Carlton squad made full use of the opportunity, putting their coaching into practice across six matches, winning five and tying the other to end the tournament unbeaten at the top of the league. Well done to all the girls and thanks to coach Eric and the organisers.
