Week 13 washout for Carlton

With east central Scotland enveloped in rain from Saturday morning to Sunday evening there was never any chance of cricket action, so it was no surprise that the matches for all 5 Carlton XIs were called off without a ball being bowled.

At least there was some cricket played on Thursday evening, with an Alex Fedenczuk led Carlton XI hosting visitors from New South Wales while the Carlton Under 18s played a friendly match at Grange.

Women are champions again

Sunday's win over RH Corstorphine at Grange Loan continued the Carlton Women's unbeaten run and sealed the National Premier League title with a game to spare. Christina Evans was the matchwinner with an unbeaten 66.

Although the Ones had their match at Falkland abandoned on Saturday, the Twos secured an important win over Dunnikier at Grange Loan. The Fives were also rained off but the Threes and Fours both lost out.

The Carlton kids are alright

The Carlton youth policy came good when it mattered as key contributions from teenagers Angus Beattie and Tom Simpson, supported by a crucial cup semi-final ton from Michael Herdman, saw Carlton to a great win over rivals Grange in the league and to a place in the Scottish Cup Final.

There were also fine league wins for the Carlton Threes and Fours , for whom 16 year old Douglas Tidy scored a fine hundred, to round off a great weekend.

Carlton set up home semi final

Carlton endured a nailbiting weekend as they tied with Glenrothes at home on Saturday, then, overcame the challenge of Poloc on a damp Sunday in Glasgow, thanks to 6 wickets from skipper Ali Evans, to reach the Scottish Cup semi-final. Carlton will now host Drumpellier at Grange Loan next Sunday.

On Saturday, there were also wins for the Threes and the Fours, who both defeated sides from Largo, though the Twos and Fives lost out again.

Last over thrillers but no wins

There was no shortage of tight finishes across the matches involving Carlton sides at the weekend but unfortunately none of the Grange Loan XIs came out on top.

Carlton fought all the way at Arbroath but their total of 144 proved just too little to defend. The Twos lost out in a last over nailbiter at Grange Loan, as did the Threes the following day. The Fours just failed to defend a decent total at Melrose, losing out by three wickets, while the youthful Fives also lost out.

All rounder Cheeky saves the day

For the second home game in a row Carlton recovered from a scratchy start to their innings to post a competitive total, as skipper Chayank Gosain put in a fine performance with bat and ball to see of the challenge of visitors Watsonians.

Carlton women also earned a vital league win at Grange Loan against West, thanks to a great knock from Heather Tait. And there were wins for the Fours against Old Contemptibles and the Sunday XI at Manderston.
