All happening on and off the field

Following Friday evening's highly successful Junior Awards event, the annual Carlton Sixes tournament for the Martin Flynn Memorial Trophy took place at Grange Loan before Saturday's club dinner.

One of the winning Sixes side, Charis Scott, then carried her form on to Sunday when she put in a star all-round performance as Carlton women defeated George Watson's by 51 runs in their Scottish Cup Qualifying match at Penicuik.

Season ends with a clean sweep

The last weekend of the league season saw Carlton deliver 5 wins from 5. At Grange Loan, 6 wickets for Arun Pillai helped Carlton win a low scoring affair, while a great partnership between Ruari Macpherson and Ruairidh Main was behind a fine win for the 2s.

Another superb partnership, between George Lamb and David Simpson, turned the 3s' match in their favour, a Paul Kentish 100 sealed promotion for the 4s and the 5s made it a 100% day.

Carlton collapse but Fours on the brink

A dramatic Carlton batting collapse at Forfarshire saw Ali Evans' side capitulate from 37 for none to 101 all out, on their way to a disappointing 10 wicket defeat.

On a more positive note, the Fours moved to within one win from promotion while there was also an impressive 8 wicket win for the 3rd XI to seal a club double over Tranent & Preston Village. The Twos lost out at home despite 60s from Ruairidh Main and Mikey Brown, while Sunday's cricket was washed out.

Eight on the bounce as Carlton win again

Aberdeenshire were dispatched by 3.15 pm on Saturday as a ruthless Carlton display, led from the front by skipper Ali Evans, took them to a rapid 5 wicket win over their Eastern Premier League rivals.

Promotion hopes for the 4th XI were kept very much alive as they beat ESCA Division Five table toppers Drummond Trinity with just two weeks of the season to go. And there was another win for the Fives as they sneaked home by one wicket in a thriller at Peffermill.

Fours fail to seal 100% weekend

Carlton won their seventh league match on the bounce when they thrashed Stewart's Melville at Inverleith. Rory McCann (90) and Arun Pillai (79) were in the runs, while Shiv Gupta returned 4 for 23 in 173 run win.

The Twos and Fives also bowled out their opponents for double figures on Saturday on their way to convincing wins, while the Threes were also winners on Sunday. Unfortunately the Fours couldn't make it 5 out of 5 as they lost to Morton 2s.

Old dog teaches new tricks

Saturday morning's torrential rain put paid to the Premier League clash between Carlton and Grange, and also saw the matches for the 3s, 4s and 5s called off.

However, with Musselburgh somehow missing the worst of the wet stuff, their match with Carlton 2s went ahead. Batting first, Carlton were indebted to a captain's innings from Gordon Drummond, but it was the performance of the youngsters in the side that ultimately delivered the win.
