Welcome to Carlton Cricket Club
Carlton is one of Scotland's leading cricket clubs. We run 4 men's teams, a women's side, 9 junior teams, a Sunday Friendly XI 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.
Carlton women's indoor season got off to a great start as they won the first tournament of the winter, defeating St Boswells in the final.
Later this month, four Carlton players head off to Thailand as part of the Scotland squad that will be competing at the ICC T20 World Qualifiers. And in New Zealand ex-Carlton player Leigh Kasperek earned her best ODI bowling figures as she helped her adopted country to a convincing series win over Sri Lanka.
The undoubted quiz highlight of the year is always Fantasy Bob's Quiz Night. The good news is that the maestro will be back at Grange Loan on Saturday 21st November with more devilish questions and, of course, his ever popular picture rounds.
The bar will be open from 7.30 pm and the quiz will start at 8. Entry is a snip at just £5 per person and you can enter a team by emailing Bob on email@example.com or just turn up on the night.
The curtain came down on the junior season as hundreds of parents and youngsters made the most of a sunny evening to join in the end of season celebrations.
The volunteers on the bar and BBQ were overworked while the juniors were given a last workout of the season by Head Coach Stevie Gilmour. The second half of the night saw 1st team players Fraser Watts, Chayank Gosain and Tom Freshwater hand out the prizes to winners across all age groups.
Carlton CC is also very grateful for the generous support of The Plum Trust and our Patrons.
