Promotion Confirmed


This website understands that the two defeats in the last 7 days for Carlton Town are a tipping point for manager Wayne Scott.

Scott enjoyed a great preseason with some fine performances, but an injury to Kyle Stovell at the start of the season was the first body blow, the youngster had been outstanding but was now out of the reckoning till November.

Praise had come from senior figures at the club when Carlton had lost games most recently at Shaw Lane Aquaforce and Newcastle Town by an odd goal, but defeats have not turned to victories and the team seemed short of confidence and ideas against St Ives and particularly in the first half against Sheffield FC.

Scott it was understood was confident his players would turn it round, but his big Achilles heel since he has been manager is the number of chances created but not converted, it there was a league table for that, Carlton would be top of it!

The team have now started to ship goals and sit second bottom of Evostick Division One South and there is a general feeling at the club, among committee and supporters, a feeling it is understood that is shared by Scott that the belief that the current Status quo of players would turn things round is rapidly waining.

Carlton have won just 3 out of 16 games this season in the league and cups, a win rate of less than 20 per cent and the time for big decisions from the manager has arrived! 

Sources close to Scott lead us to believe new signings are imminent and at least two new players will be in the squad for the visit of Lincoln United providing paper work can be completed in time.

The other side of that coin is that Scott will be prepared to let players go who he feels have not performed up to the standards he was hoping for and to balance the books to enable him to make new signings. 

It is a difficult balance for the Millers manager, he has to work with one of the smaller budgets in the division, but also knows the talent in his squad should not see his side laying 2nd bottom.

He is currently missing the injured Josh Rae and many supporters believe the team is weaker without the talented young midfielder in it, one bonus is the return to the squad of Stovell who made an instant impact when coming on as a substitute against Sheffield FC on Tuesday.

Carlton worked hard to get to this level and will not want to give up playing at it without one hell of a fight, the manager turned it round last season after an equally disappointing start, but the standard of teams is quite clearly better this season and Scott it is understood is under no illusions, that the decisions he makes this side of Christmas will probably be the most important of his tenure, watch this space!
