Promotion Confirmed


Outstanding young prospect Jason Law who recently made his full debut at Carlton Town at just 16 years old scoring 4 goals in the 3 games he has started, has got a dream move to Mansfield Town .

Law was recommended to manager Wayne Scott by Chairman Mick Garton after he had been tipped off about him by fellow MSR director Dave Fryer, Garton did his homework and realised they had a great prospect on their doorstep and after Scott had been to watch him play in a final at the City Ground last season for his youth team, he too was convinced about the youngsters pedigree.

Law impressed with the academy team, helping them to the top of the table before getting his first team opportunity and he did not dissapoint and was quickly spotted by The Stags management.

While manager Wayne Scott is delighted for the youngster, it also leaves him with a bitter sweet taste as he fights a relegation battle without an outstanding young striker who may have made a big difference to Carltons chances.

Chairman Mick Garton explained "We knew Jason would go higher and we were delighted to give him the opportunity to express himself, a chance he took with both hands , the move away has come sooner than we expected and although we are delighted for Jason, it is obviously a blow in one sense given our league position"

"Because of Jasons age and education status, we were not allowed to contract him so we will have to rely on the goodwill of Mansfield going forward if he makes progress with them which I believe he will"

"We received a lovely card off his family thanking us what we had done for their lad in giving him the opportunity and we have an excellent relationship with Mansfield Town which is obviously important and it was great to see Jason and his dad at our Christmas event when we had the chance to wish him all the best" 

"I have been at the helm here for 14 years and he is the best prospect since Terry Hawkridge, i believe Jason could possibly go on and have a fantastic career and he is certainly the best young striker I have seen here, make no mistake about that! concluded Garton.

Popular defender Fletcher meanwhile was delighted to return to the club he had won the Notts Senior Cup with in 2013 and told Millers Radio he was waiting for a call and delighted he got it before the Basford clash on Boxing Day.

Basford are on an outstanding run of form and it looks a daunting prospect for the second from bottom Millers and they will need to fight hard to have any chance of gaining any points from Greenwich Avenue although The Millers can take heart from their 2-1 win over their neighbours in the League cup recently.
