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.
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 maintained their 100% away record in the league for the 2015 season with a solid performance at Forfarshire to end the campaign in third place.
The Twos were beaten at home by runaway ESCA Championship winners Glenrothes and the Fours, who had already won their league, lost at Musselburgh. The Threes, however, cruised to a 9 wicket win against Dunfermline & Carnegie thanks in part to an unbeaten 100 from Paul Kentish.
After leading the Carlton Fantasy Cricket League for much of the season, it will have come as no surprise to see opening bowler Ali Evans finish in first place and picking up the £100 first prize.
In a last week shock, Keith Murray found himself out of the prize money and down to fifth (behind brother Alan who finished fourth) as club captain Fraser Watts surged into second place, with 4th XI skipper 'Fantasy' Bob Irvine finishing in third place.
Carlton CC is also very grateful for the generous support of The Plum Trust and our Patrons.
