Carlton and Mazars Grange have set up a tasty Scottish Cup semi-final next month after they both won their quarter-final matches yesterday.

At Grange Loan, Carlton batted first against Kelburne and they made 184 all out.

The mainstays of the innings were Hamish Gardiner and Gordon Drummond, both hitting half centuries with the latter smashing a couple of big sixes soon after reaching 50.

In Kelburne’s reply Ryan McCloy took two early wickets and when Ali Evans took another the visitors were struggling on 12-3.

From that moment onwards Carlton were in the ascendency and all of their bowlers weighed in, with young spinner Chayank Gosain taking two scalps to keep up his great form in the competition thus far.

In the end Kelburne were a long way short of their target, finishing 122 all out.

Grange progressed to a last four tie at Grange Loan, wich will be a repeat of the 2013 final, with a comfortable victory over Stoneywood-Dyce in Stockbridge.

In a match reduced to 39 overs, the visitors made 150-9 batting first.

In the Grange reply George Munsey made 64 and skipper Andrew Brock 42 not out as they won by five wickets.

Arbroath defeated Ferguslie and the NVT Poloc-Autoecosse Forfarshire tie was postponed.

The semi-final ties are set to take place on July 26.
