Women

Welcome

Carlton takes great pride in how our women’s section has gone from strength to strength over the years, since it first started in 2012. We have a hugely diverse range of abilities in our squad, from women who have never played cricket before to Scotland internationalists. We encourage everyone to come and give cricket a go at our club – there’s something for everyone and we’d love to have you along at one of our training sessions.

Interested? If so, we’d love to hear from you! Email us at carltonwomen@gmail.com and we’ll get back in touch with you as soon as we can about how you can get involved with our friendly squad!

Training

Women’s training sessions take place from 6-8pm every Friday, at 180 Grange Loan, Edinburgh, EH9 2EE. Many players enjoy a pie & a pint in the beer garden afterwards, starting the weekend off in style!

Fixtures

You can find details of all the women’s fixtures for the season here. This will be added to over the course of the season, so keep an eye on it for more info!

Peter has played an important role in the continuing development of the Scotland Women’s National Team, and is greatly experienced in the world of women’s cricket, coaching and developing players of all ages and abilities. Peter is supported by Annette Aitken-Drummond as Assistant Coach.
