Promotion Confirmed


Carlton Towns Ashes dinner at Stoke Lane was not only a sell out but also another fantastic night in the clubs history as a packed clubhouse warmed to Nottinghamshire and England cricket legend Derek Randall.

Randall ventured into the clubs boardroom to look at pictures of his last visit to Stoke Lane quite a few years ago and was concerned that many people in the photos had sadly passed away since visiting Stoke Lane .

Derek remembered club legends Bill Stokeld and Chuck Fowler and also noted that previous top guest speakers at Stoke Lane Emlyn Huges, Jack Taylor and Alan Ball were no longer with us.

Derek though very much was, although his friend Mick West said he had picked him up from the old peoples home and he must be back for 10.30pm.

That kind of humour was also typical from the man himself as he entertained Millers supporters for a good hour after food had been served at The Bill Stokeld Stadium.

The club are gratefull to sponsors for the evening Castle Rock Brewery and club photographer Lou Lardi for the excellent photos which are already on the supporters website and to all those who supported the evening and helped raise vital funds for the club ahead of the new campaign.

Club chairman Mick Garton who hosted the evening and also donated some cracking prizes on the night also revealed that the clubs very special guest for this years Christmas Luncheon will be one of Brian Cloughs right hand men at the City Ground in the glory years Alan Hill.

Hill is regarded as an outstanding speaker and will follow in the footsteps of legends including Jack Charlton, Graham Taylor and Paul Merson who have been The Millers very special Christmas guests in previous years.

"Alan has some fantastic Clough and Taylor stories and like Derek Randall will go down a storm, this is a must come to event for all Forest fans" said the Carlton Town chairman.
